libdnet.1: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

Good day all,

I am trying to configure SNORT on UBUNTU 10.10.
I am using the Snort 2.9.0 and Snort Report 1.3.1 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Installation Guide from Snort website.

When I complete the following command:

snorttest:~$ sudo /usr/local/snort/bin/snort -u snort -g snort -C /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -i eth0

I get this error:

/usr/local/snort/bin/snort: error while loading shared libraries: libdnet.1: cannot open shared object file: No such 
file or directory

I believe I followed the instructions to a "t".

find /usr -name "libdnet*" -print


Any help would be appreciated.
