I just ran into a similar problem like this today under RHLinux 7.0 and Erek
Adams had given me a few hints and also found a few docs on the Internet
that seemed similar. I don't have a lot of experience with this but fumbled
with it and got it to work.

These "uintX_t" references (where X is 8, 16 or 32) appear to be declared an
extra time somewhere. So referring to the lines below, I went into
/usr/include/sys/types.h and removed lines 196, 197 and 198 (as referenced
here). Then the compile worked.

	  /usr/include/stdint.h:49: redefinition of `uint8_t'
        /usr/include/sys/types.h:196: `uint8_t' previously declared here
        /usr/include/stdint.h:50: redefinition of `uint16_t'
        /usr/include/sys/types.h:197: `uint16_t' previously declared here
        /usr/include/stdint.h:52: redefinition of `uint32_t'
        /usr/include/sys/types.h:198: `uint32_t' previously declared here

My compile for snort (using --enable-flexresp) keeps failing during the
make. The following errors are:

        *******************************

        *************************************

I have Libnet installed as required.
I am running RH Linux 7.2
I am attempting to compile snort 1.8.4 (Build 99)


Any hints would be greatly appreciated?


Thanks.
