    Check in /etc/ld.so.conf so that /usr/local/lib is listed, and if it isn't, add it and run ldconfig. Then try again.

    nope didnt work

    still didnt work, but it also wasnt in the ld.so.conf file so i added it and ran again and got the same thing as before. here is some more info for yall to ponder and maybe think of something else wrong:

    checking for libnet_build_ip in -lnet... no
    configure:error: No libnet? No firewalk.

    thats the output from the ./configure when it goes bad. thanx again for the help.

    Check so that libnet was installed properly. You could check if libnet* exists in either /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib.
