    n00b questions


    Hello all, I have a couple of install questions I was wondering I could get some help with.

    1.) I'm using Kubuntu (6.10) and I'm trying to install an "application/x-mplayer2" application to view within my browser. I downloaded Easy Ubuntu and I thought it installed it, but allas it has not.

    2.) I'm always trying to install snort. I downloaded the snort.tar.gz and extracted it into a file on the desk top. I've followed the directions and navigated to the file and ./configure'd it but when I do a make it says

    checking for dlfcn.h... yes
    checking for g++... no
    checking for c++... no
    checking for gpp... no
    checking for aCC... no
    checking for CC... no
    checking for cxx... no
    checking for cc++... no
    checking for cl... no
    checking for FCC... no
    checking for KCC... no
    checking for RCC... no
    checking for xlC_r... no
    checking for xlC... no
    checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
    checking whether g++ accepts -g... no
    checking dependency style of g++... none
    checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
    configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
    See `config.log' for more details.
    me@meLappy:~/Desktop/snort-2.6.1.1$ make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    What am I doing wrong? Can I make this work?

    Thanks for all the help!

    Have you tried Automatix? If you don't want to do that, you can view video in your browser, assuming you have the proper codecs installed, by running
    Code:
    $sudo apt-get install mplayer-plugin
    As for Snort, I know you can install it with yum in Fedora, have you tried using apt-get to install it in Kubuntu? You can still use the configure options if you need them. For example
    Code:
    $sudo apt-get install snort
    or
    Code:
    $sudu apt-get install snort-mysql

    For the mplayer plugin, you want mozilla-mplayer:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install mozilla-mplayer

    Thanks!

    I was able to get both to install and they work great now. Now I just have to figure out how to use snort :P
