[Snort-users] Snort 2.8.6 on SPARC 64 OpenBSD from Port "bus error"

Thanks for the response!

I tried installing snort 2.9.3.1 with Daq 1.1.1 however, upon running 
./configure I got an error saying that libpcap library version >= 1.0.0  
not found

Unfortunately since this seems to be unsupported on OpenBSD RELEASE I 
couldn't find any documentation on how to get over this hurdle.

As such I wasn't quite sure what to do?


Regards,

Kaya
