Search for the pcre development library in the repo. It should be something like “sudo apt-cache search pcre”.

The one you are looking for should have “dev” or “devel” at the end of it.

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort install and libpcre error

I am going through an installation of Snort 2.9.11 on Kali Linux and have discovered that i requires the pcre library. When I enter, “./configure –with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql” (ignore quotes)
A message appeared stating, “EROOR! Libpcre header not found, go get it from http://www.pcre.org”

Anybody help me?
