Firstly, is there somewhere where the process for compiling so rules
is well documented? I've spent quite some time with google and turned
up an old FAQ entry that was not very helpful and nothing much else.
What I have done is:
in the snort source dir -- create so_rules/.
copy the so_rules from the VRT tarball into this directory
cd to so_rules/src
and I get:
[rful011 at ...13893... src]$ make
ls: web-misc_*.c: No such file or directory
ls: sql_*.c: No such file or directory
ls: multimedia_*.c: No such file or directory
cc1: unrecognized option `-Wno-strict-aliasing'
make: *** [p2p_winny] Error 1
anyone have any idea what is going on?
I have googled on "-Wno-strict-aliasing" and turned up a few posts to
various lists from people who had had this error in the context of gcc
In the end I simply removed the option from the CFLAGS and everything
Perhaps an issue with the version of gcc on RHE 3 ( The box is
scheduled for an upgrade...)
