[Snort-users] Typical barnyard compile problems (Povel, Michael)

Update:

Per suggestions of the folks on the list I have tried:

1. installing the openssl devel package.
2. running configure with /configure --enable-mysql
--with-mysql-includes=<Path> --with-mysql-libraries=<Path>

No luck so far.

If I roll back barnyard to 0.2.0r2 then I can install with no issues.

The other suggestion I received was to update mysql to the latest which I
think is 4.0.18.

Any other ideas? Or people who have gotten the April 30 release of barnyard
0.2.0 working?

Also, If I make a change to my system and attempt to re-run ./configure
Are there any commands that I need to run before I re ./configure.

I read that I need to do a 
Aclocal
Autoheader
Autoconf
Automake

And that's what Ive been doing but I just want to make sure Im not missing
anything.  


I appreciate all the responses I am getting thus far! Thanks for the
efforts!




Hi All, 

Having problems installing the barnyard 0.2.0 on my Suse 9 server.

I have installed mysql and the accompanying packages using YAST (since Im a
rookie)

I get the following error when I try to run configure on barnyard

**********************************************
  ERROR: unable to find mysqlclient library
  checked in the following places
        /usr/lib/mysql
**********************************************

Here are some of the specifics of my box. It's a standard suse 9 install

Ive looked through the mailing list and I find tons of people with this
question, no one using barnyard 2, and most deal with editing the
configure.in which in this case has mysql_real_connect on line 285. I found
One other posting that said to change this like to "my" instead of "mysql.."
I tried this followed by
Aclocal
Autoheader
Autoconf
Automake 

And Im still getting this problem.


Any suggestions?  Are there any good alternatives to barnyard?
