You are missing pcre, yes.  But you are also trying to compile with mysql support, which we haven’t supported in... about six years?

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?
