    Packet Sniffing

    Hi everyone,

    I am linux newbie actually as part of my study in school i am suppose to configure sniffit as a packet sniffer but doing so i am having many problems. The problems are listed as:-

    1> First i am using a bootable knoppix 5.0 debian linux
    2> i downloaded the tar zipped file of sniffit.0.3.5.tar.gz on the desktop
    3> I untar it on the desktop and then change directory to that folder
    4> I login as root and do ./configure
    5> I do a make in the directory and this is where i get errors where i m unable to create the sniffit executable

    I would really appreciate if I can get some help on this
    Thank you,

    Can you post the errors you get?

    Also, you don't need to log in as root for ./configure or make, only when you do make install.
