What do you mean by "installed correctly"?

Like in
rpm -V <package-name>
?

man rpm for details ...



Cheers,

Yes. Try these commands:

rpm -qi packagename
rpm -ql packagename
rpm -V packagename

Oki! I will try thoose commands.

To be more specified, Im setting up snort with mysql.

Package:

snort....rpm
snort-mysql....rpm

I have also installed libpcap vers 8-something....

Libpcap8 works fine with snort and ethereal, but not with snort-mysql.

Snort-mysql Is complaining about libcap6.

I GOOGLED around and found no directly answer abot that problem.

SO.... I installed snort-mysql with --force. WOLLA! It worked. BUT!

Snort-logs cant transfer Its file to mysql database. So Im starting to wonder If my --force command Isnt so good after all....

No I have two libpcaps vers 8 and 6. You cant make that Install without --force I guees, because you always get the answer that a newer version already exist. (8-6)

I have also tried --nodeps but that Is only shit. Real simple, you need dependensies.

Just want to be shure that snort-mysql is using all the needed libraries and processes.

BYE!
