Re: Snort 2.9.0.3 Now Available

Hi Azher,

No, these rpms aren't built with --enable-ipv6 since the default spec file 
available from the downloads on snort.org doesn't enable it either (I 
tried to remain as close as possible). If there are no side-effects (for 
people using ipv4 only, etc...) and if everyone agrees, it would be easy 
for me to produce a new build with ipv6 enabled. I hope someone 
knowledgeable will be able to provide guidance here since I have no idea 
if enabling ipv6 in all snort builds would cause any side-effects. I don't 
want to break builds for people with an ipv4-only setup or cause 
slowdowns because I enabled a feature.
Thanks,

Vincent

Hi Vincent,

Are these rpms built with ipv6 ? I am getting ipvar error and someone
earlier suggested that ipv6 should be compiled in to get ipvar
