Joel,

You are right about that, got me, there is a space in that folder name.  I can rework that and eliminate the space since it may matter.  

When I started pulling in all the Snort and necessary downloads I created the "legal" folder names the system allowed me to make, but I would be surprised that it matter since I just thought of these as source folders for my downloads, but not any part of functional part of the install....

Most of my work life day to day has been with Windows so I am most attuned to the way that path structure works - ouch. (:>)

Separately, on the "rpm" package method that finally installed once I tried the 5MB package of Snort rather than the 2.4MB rpm.  For some reason up until that point I always received that "install failed - nothing provides libcrypto.so.10" message (my paraphrase of the exact message here).  However I could never locate such a crypto package to install and fix it elsewhere, and in spite of having current SSH and related dev libraries for that and several other crypto mechanisms present on my system.

Lars

I was just looking at it from 

"/home/user/Download/Snort IDS/snort-2.9.4.1/src/win32"

There is a space between "Snort" and "IDS".

Unless you are referring to a folder name with more than one word in it that I created, the path itself should not have any spaces (maybe format of the e-mail accounts for?) unless somehow the system inserted one without my doing, unless a space in folder names counts?  If it seems a concern I can change that.  Your guidance is definitely welcome and appreciated!

Yet I am sad to say that between two different images of SuSE Linux (one is a 12.2 VM with KDE, and another 12.2 that was upgraded from 11.x as a native install) I was not able to get a successful install and initialization going yet.  I would like to get it running and learn from the experience too.  Might the error information below lead to answers?  Thoughts?  I am new to this online community so my apologies if somehow I missed a reply.

Yet when I try to run make it refers to a number of directories it enters and exits with an error saying for example “there is nothing to do for all” and then “make[5] there is no rule to build” etc.  I have been researching this a lot and come up with no direct answers.  My GUESS is it is looking for a rule package but I have not been able to find a free one yet to download if that is the problem. I am a student on this and do not wish to buy any rules, I can just use the most basic ones out there as I get started and was surprised to find it seems none are included to start out with and finish an install?
