install problems ./configure...... :(
First of all, sorry I'm a n00b.
Secondly, thanks for the help.
I'm brand new to linux, and am using freespire, but I have managed to configure my dual boot config from one hard drive, and enable the root account....(with a heavy pass, and only for the installation of files)
I'm trying to install snort. I downloaded the files, and decompressed them, I get into the "Root shell" and follow the instructions for the install.....
I located the snort file..
root# cd snort
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
........ a bunch of lines later........
checking for pfring.h... no
checking for pfring_open in -lpfring... no
checking for pfring_open in -lpcap... no
ERROR! Libpcap library/headers (libpcap.a (or .so)/pcap.h)
not found, go get it from http://www.tcpdump.org TCPDUMP public repository
or use the --with-libpcap-* options, if you have it installed
in unusual place. Also check if your libpcap depends on another
shared library that may be installed in an unusual place
I tried looking for solutions, and am not finding them....

I Tried this:
rpm -ivh libpcap-devel-0.9.4-8.1.i386.rpm
warning: libpcap-devel-0.9.4-8.1.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e8562897
error: Failed dependencies:
libpcap = 14:0.9.4-8.1 is needed by libpcap-devel-0.9.4-8.1.i386
libpcap.so.0.9.4 is needed by libpcap-devel-0.9.4-8.1.i386
I'm kind of at a loss, and I'm guessing that i'm totally off, but it seems that I need some libraries that I don't have. hahah, Thanks again for your help.
