Strange, I installed libdnet from source at one point and it still failed on make so I started over. I just installed it again as you suggested and it worked this time. Thank you for your help James. Also Stephen, your guide looks much more in depth. I think I will use that instead. Thank you everyone.

I am setting up Snort for the second time on an Ubuntu 12.04 on VMware to practice before deploying on our live network with an actual Ubuntu server. I have encountered a strange problem I did not have the first time. I am following this guide: https://s3.amazonaws.com/snort-org-site/production/document_files/files/000/000/050/original/Snort_2.9.6.2_on_Ubuntu.pdf?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAIXACIED2SPMSC7GA <https://s3.amazonaws.com/snort-org-site/production/document_files/files/000/000/050/original/Snort_2.9.6.2_on_Ubuntu.pdf?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAIXACIED2SPMSC7GA&Expires=1420749048&Signature=A8s%2FRaAbWtBBP3ehIT%2BeQnuaMLM%3D> &Expires=1420749048&Signature=A8s%2FRaAbWtBBP3ehIT%2BeQnuaMLM%3D

And am using Snort, DAQ 2.0.4 and barnyard2 2-1.13. I did this once before recently with no problems. When I get to the point in the guide where it asks you to perform make on barnyard2 I get the following:


make[3]: Entering directory `/home/jake/snort_src/barnyard2-master/src'

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I..  -Isfutil -I/usr/include/mysql -DENABLE_MYSQL  -g -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -Wall -c decode.c

decode.c:38:18: fatal error: dnet.h: No such file or directory

compilation terminated.

make[3]: *** [decode.o] Error 1

make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/jake/snort_src/barnyard2-master/src'

make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jake/snort_src/barnyard2-master'

I have done some internet research but not found anything that was able to help me resolve this problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.


You're missing libdnet-1.12 @ http://code.google.com/p/libdnet/
