  You are grepping for libcap, what you need is libpcap.  rpm -qa | grep libpcap, see if that is installed.

  Check This


  checking for pcap_datalink in -lpcap... no


     ERROR!  Libpcap library/headers not found, go get it from
     or use the --with-libpcap-* options, if you have it installed
     in unusual place

  this happen when I make a configure of snort


  and now check this


  # rpm -qa | grep libcap


  I have installed(By system default) this ver of libcap, but snort is asking me by a lower ver of it, and my question is How I can use my installed version instead the lower that snort need?


  Even when I use the param --with-libpcap-includes or --with-libpcap-libraries and I give it the path of the libraries the error persist

    If you would like a good, basic document from which to install Snort
    on a RH9 or Fedora Core 1 box, go to www.ntsug.com and download
    Patrick Harper's paper.  There are several versions there, one should
    fit your needs.  It is a paper that will require you to reload your
    machine, but will provide the correct information necessary to
    successfully install both RH9 and Snort.

    I'm trying to install the lastest version of snort on a red hat 8 and
    a red hat 9, and it's asking by libcap 0.6 but red hat 8 and 9
    install 1.0 by default, what I can do??
