Re: Errors installing SNORT 2.9 to SuSE Linux 12.2 - rpm or tar.gz

Hi, I hope everyone had a great weekend and holiday! Any thoughts or ideas on the Snort install and setup (make) 
related errors I ran into yet I posted back on March 22nd?  

 

It has been a long time since I ever installed and ran Snort it seemed like it should have worked out using the 
documentation and tips you offer for SuSE users.  Yet I am sad to say that between two different images of SuSE Linux 
(one is a 12.2 VM with KDE, and another 12.2 that was upgraded from 11.x as a native install) I was not able to get a 
successful install and initialization going yet.  I would like to get it running and learn from the experience too.  
Might the error information below lead to answers?  Thoughts?  I am new to this online community so my apologies if 
somehow I missed a reply.

 

Lars

Can you copy and paste the commands you are typing and the errors you are getting?

Hello Group,

 

I have been attempting to install the latest rpm OR .tar.gz of SNORT to my fairly plain test instance of SuSE 12.2 I 
use for student work and testing of what I know, other tools etc.  The system is an i386 32bit Toshiba laptop booting 
directly into SuSE 12.2, and the trouble is with Snort installation.

 

Here is what is happening that I could definitely use help with:

 

While in the case of the .tar.gz version the “configure phase” worked fine once I had all the pre-install required 
dependency connected libraries and packages, and finished as far as I can tell w/o errors.  Yet when I try to run make 
it refers to a number of directories it enters and exits with an error saying for example “there is nothing to do for 
all” and then “make[5] there is no rule to build” etc.  I have been researching this a lot and come up with no direct 
answers.  My GUESS is it is looking for a rule package but I have not been able to find a free one yet to download if 
that is the problem. I am a student on this and do not wish to buy any rules, I can just use the most basic ones out 
there as I get started and was surprised to find it seems none are included to start out with and finish an install?

 

“rpm” method:  When I downloaded and tried installing the rpm version instead using SuSE YaST software manager/install 
tool (GUI) the process begins but always errors out saying it failed/cannot complete with the error “nothing provides 
libcrypto.so.10” but my SUSE install has SSH and several GNU and/or other crypto libraries I just added (with 
source/development libraries) yet none of these work?

 

Any assistance is greatly appreciated and what am I missing?
