Config.log

An odd request I'm sure....almost all other apps that I do the ./configure, make, sudo make install dance leave me with a config.log. Bro does not. Can we get this please? Unless the information is contained somewhere else of course...thank you.

Hi,

An odd request I'm sure....almost all other apps that I do the
./configure, make, sudo make install dance leave me with a
config.log.

This is usually done by Autotools. Bro uses CMake, which doesn't provide
such a mechanism by itself, see [1]. However, I'm not familiar with the
codebase at all, so maybe something like that was already implemented.

Unless the information is contained somewhere else of course...thank
you.

What in particular are you actually looking for? CMake should complain
about missing dependencies, etc., and at least in my case it did.

Best regards,
Karol Babioch

We...truth be told I have some installs which may not have been installed in the standard location...so..I go back and look at my config.log for any special config options I may have passed. I know...I should just document it and drive on, which I've done on most..just...not all :slight_smile: That was really the only reason.

$ cat build/config.status
# This is the command used to configure this build
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/bro --with-pcap=/opt/pfring --with-jemalloc=/usr/

Brilliant...thanks Justin!
