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

Joel,

You are right about that, got me, there is a space in that folder name.  I can rework that and eliminate the space 
since it may matter.  

When I started pulling in all the Snort and necessary downloads I created the "legal" folder names the system allowed 
me to make, but I would be surprised that it matter since I just thought of these as source folders for my downloads, 
but not any part of functional part of the install....

Most of my work life day to day has been with Windows so I am most attuned to the way that path structure works - ouch. 
(:>)

Separately, on the "rpm" package method that finally installed once I tried the 5MB package of Snort rather than the 
2.4MB rpm.  For some reason up until that point I always received that "install failed - nothing provides 
libcrypto.so.10" message (my paraphrase of the exact message here).  However I could never locate such a crypto package 
to install and fix it elsewhere, and in spite of having current SSH and related dev libraries for that and several 
other crypto mechanisms present on my system.

Lars

I was just looking at it from 

"/home/user/Download/Snort IDS/snort-2.9.4.1/src/win32"

There is a space between "Snort" and "IDS".

Joel,
 
Good ask and hey I agree with your thinking!  Unless you are referring to a folder name with more than one word in it 
that I created, the path itself should not have any spaces (maybe format of the e-mail accounts for?) unless somehow 
the system inserted one without my doing, unless a space in folder names counts?  If it seems a concern I can change 
that.  Your guidance is definitely welcome and appreciated!

Am I reading this correctly that you have a space in your path where Snort is?
 
I'm not saying that makes a difference, but I try to eliminate the simplest things first.

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?
