I know this is a real newbie question, but Im sorry I'v been stuck for a day and a half and really need some help.
When installing "snort-1.8.1-1mdk.i586.rpm" i get the following error :
error: failed dependencies:
libpcap >= 0.4 is needed by snort-1.8.1-1mdk
libpcap.so.0 is needed by snort-1.8.1-1mdk
Yes this seems simple and I know Im going to feel stupid when I hear the answer but here is what I have done to fix the problem.
A. Tried to install libpcap, but am not 100% sure how to tell if it is installed correctly. However rpm -q reveals that it is not
[root at ...4614... root]# rpm -qa | grep libp
the confusing thing though is that tcpdump works ???? HOW ????
B. My Path looks something like this :
[root at ...4614... root]# echo $PATH
If anyone can tell me what Im doing wrong, I would really appreciate it.
