installing Bro on fedora 5


I installed Linux Fedora 5 as Virtual PC on my laptop (main operating system is Windows vista).
I tried to install Bro according to instructions:
1- ./configure
2- make
3- make install

but this didn’t work :frowning:

I don’t want to work on live network, I just want to read a pcap file and then to verify if the alarm is generated

So can somebody help me??


Hi nour,
It's not easy to find what is your pb without more info,
do you have a error when starting bro in live capture please?
could you check if you have installed libpcap + libpcap-devel please?

I installed only libpcap but no libpcap-devel.
I cheked if bro is working as noted in the instructions by the command “bro.rc start” and it didn’t work.
If there is another way to check please tell me…
In fact I have no experience with softwares under UNIX, i learned some commands from Internet.
Thanks a lot,
waiting for you help :slight_smile:

Make sure you install all of the dependencies listed on the wiki.

It might be easiest to follow the cluster install instructions for Bro version 1.5. You will want to install the cluster in stand-alone mode.
