[Snort-users] Snort + PF_RING + DAQ

I just last week went through the process of getting Snort and PF_Ring
running on my CentOS 5.8 box. I ran into the same error you are
running into. I found that it is because CentOS does not have recent
enough versions of the automake and similar utilities. And the only
way I was able to get it to compile was to use the versions of
autoconf, automake, libtool, and m4 from the GNU website built from
source. In order to get my terminal to recognize some of them after I
compiled and installed them, I had to log out and log back in.

After installing those, I was able to successfully build Snort with
PF_Ring and use multiple instances of Barnyard2 to process the logs
into a mysql database and send via syslog to another server.

I hope this helps.




If you want something that runs out of the box you can download
http://nsm.metaflows.com/linux.zip
then
unzip linux.zip
cd nsm
./setup.sh

This will install a lot of of extra things you can ignore but we know
the PF_RING drivers and snort 2.9.2.3 combination work for in production
deployments of several Gigs of traffic.

It does not have the latest PF_RING and latest snort, but what is in
there has been
heavily QA..

Livio.

As a quick follow up to this, one of the primary errors I'm running
into is when doing "./configure" under the
/tmp/PF_RING-5.4.5/userland/snort/pfring-daq-module directory. The
error I continue to get is:

checking for C compiler default output file name... configure:
error: in `/tmp/PF_RING-5.4.5/userland/snort/pfring-daq-module':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables See
`config.log' for more details.

I have gcc and gcc-c++ installed on the CentOS box, so I'm not sure
why it can't create the executables.

It might be worth discussing PF_RING problems on the ntop-misc mailing
list as they tend to get resolved fairly quickly.

Discussing this with someone else recently we've concluded:

1) Use the version from SVN if you're using Snort 2.9.3.x and DAQ 1.x
2) Build in $HOME/PF_RING as the autoconf stuff seems to be hardwired
to only work in that directory.
