Sure Joel, thanks for asking:

 

I will paste a few of the different example lines here, and attach the two page file with all of what I captured from the command line (I had to make time to go back and run it again in a terminal type that lets us copy that text).


Example portion 1 (for the tar.gz package build method): (Note I just did a find and replace on this report info of the real user name and just generalized here as  “user”)  The real user name is of course listed in the terminal window.  Just something I do (:>)

 

linux-4z7m:/home/user/Download/Snort IDS/snort-2.9.4.1 # make

 

make  all-recursive

make[4]: Nothing to be done for `all-am'. 

 

For the RPM:

 

When trying to load that there is nothing more than the “nothing provides libcrypto.so.10” message build failed cannot complete in spite of the fact I have a SuSE 12.2 build updated and with SSH plus how I have added several current crypto libraries to try and beat this.

Can you copy and paste the commands you are typing and the errors you are getting?

Hello Group,

 

I have been attempting to install the latest rpm OR .tar.gz of SNORT to my fairly plain test instance of SuSE 12.2 I use for student work and testing of what I know, other tools etc.  The system is an i386 32bit Toshiba laptop booting directly into SuSE 12.2, and the trouble is with Snort installation.

 

Here is what is happening that I could definitely use help with:

 

While in the case of the .tar.gz version the “configure phase” worked fine once I had all the pre-install required dependency connected libraries and packages, and finished as far as I can tell w/o errors.  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?

 

“rpm” method:  When I downloaded and tried installing the rpm version instead using SuSE YaST software manager/install tool (GUI) the process begins but always errors out saying it failed/cannot complete with the error “nothing provides libcrypto.so.10” but my SUSE install has SSH and several GNU and/or other crypto libraries I just added (with source/development libraries) yet none of these work?

 

Any assistance is greatly appreciated and what am I missing?
