Noah;  

 

Thanks, I did in fact use the second line.  I first used it as shown below, then I tried it by specifically defining the ‘—with-mysql’ param

e.g.:  ('--with-mysql=/usr/'; '--with-mysql=/var/lib/mysql' ; '--with-mysql=/usr/lib/mysql/plugin' and '--with-mysql=/usr/share/mysql/’)  I think I’ve run the configure command close to twenty times trying different settings.  

 

My understanding of the purpose of the ’ –with-mysql ‘ param is to define the base directory of the mysql database.  So when it didn’t work without a defined directory I set it to be the basedir as shown in Mysql.  When that didn’t work I tried the datadir, then I just tried everything.    Each time I ran .configure I also ran make and make install. (using sudo)

 

mysql> SHOW VARIABLES WHERE Variable_Name LIKE "%dir";

+---------------------------+----------------------------+

| Variable_name             | Value                      |

+---------------------------+----------------------------+

| basedir                   | /usr/                      |

| character_sets_dir        | /usr/share/mysql/charsets/ |

| datadir                   | /var/lib/mysql/            |

| innodb_data_home_dir      |                            |

| innodb_log_group_home_dir | ./                         |

| innodb_tmpdir             |                            |

| lc_messages_dir           | /usr/share/mysql/          |

| plugin_dir                | /usr/lib/mysql/plugin/     |

| slave_load_tmpdir         | /tmp                       |

| tmpdir                    | /tmp                       |

Your guide was one of three that I had found, (Actually I found yours earlier this week and haven’t had a chance to get into it yet)  One thing that concerned me when using the guides was the date on the two that I have been looking at – one was from 2012.

 

Here are the results of the configure command using the ‘—with-mysql’ without a defined directory:

These are the two sql libraries you need to install Barnyard2:

sudo apt-get install -y mysql-server libmysqlclient-dev mysql-client

 

I suspect that your issue is that you're not using the correct flag when you configure barnyard2.  The correct command is one of the following two lines (probably the second line, since you're on the x86 version of Ubuntu):

./configure --with-mysql --with-mysql-libraries=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

./configure --with-mysql --with-mysql-libraries=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu

this ensures that you are adding the correct mysql libraries.

 

These instructions are from my Snort guide:  http://sublimerobots.com/2017/01/snort-2-9-9-x-ubuntu-installing-barnyard2/

 

On another note: the version of Snort that you are installing is really old (i'm assuming you're installing it from the repositories).  You probably want to install snort manually to get the latest (and supported) version. My guide is here for the 2.9.9.0 version (latest) release of snort on Ubuntu: http://sublimerobots.com/2017/01/snort-2-9-9-x-ubuntu-installing-snort/, along with barnyard2, PulledPork, and BASE.

Thanks for the response.  Looking in Synaptic, I see the following installed:

 

·         Libmysqlclient-dev 

·         libmysqlclient20

Both of them are at version 5.7.16-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

 

So here is possibly a dumb question:  Is it possible for something to be installed and not show up in Synaptic?

I "think" you have to also install libmysqlclient-dev or it's equivalent on your distro. I am not on a computer to validate.

Hello,  I am having a problem getting Barnyard2 to work.  Snort seems to be working fine but I keep getting the following error when I attempt to run Barnyard:

ERROR database: 'mysql' support is not compiled into this build of barnyard2

 

ERROR: If this build of barnyard2 was obtained as a binary distribution (e.g., rpm,

or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the necessary

'mysql' support.

 

I’ve set ‘--with-MySql’ and have reinstalled it many times.  I am clearly missing something

 

I am running the following

 

Linux Mint           ver 18 32bit

MySql                   ver 5.7.16-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

Snort                     ver 2.9.7.0-5

Barnyard2           ver 2.1.14 Build 339

 

I would appreciate any help.
