Building Bro 2.5.1 with PF_Ring 6.6 configure/cmake not working


I am trying to build Bro with PF_Ring support. I followed the instructions and built pfring to /opt/pfring-6.6. When I try to run: ‘./configure --with-pcap=/opt/pfring-6.6’ it does not seem to work.

– Found PCAP: /usr/local/lib/

– Performing Test PCAP_LINKS_SOLO

– Performing Test PCAP_LINKS_SOLO - Success

– Looking for pcap_get_pfring_id

– Looking for pcap_get_pfring_id - not found

Digging around cmake

Have a great day!


Where did this file come from?

Not sure how you installed pfring (assuming just the prefix for /opt/pfring-6.6 and no indicating the lib dir) but it may need to be:

./configure --with-pcap=/opt/pfring-6.6/lib
