Ntop


Newbie here !!WARNING!! >


I recenltly installed Fedora 3 for the sole purpose of running Ntop to monitor network usage. I downloaded the Ntop 3.1 RPM package, when I run it error comes out stating im missing packages; libdg.so.18 & libpcap.so.0.6.2. When I download those rpm I get Packages already installed???

I am not familiar with Linux at all and trying to convert.

Tks for the help.

If you have yum configured you should be able to just do "yum install ntop" which will handle all of the dependency resolution for you. Otherwise tell us exactly what RPM you tried to install to get libpcap and libdg.

Is Yum an RPM that will install pretty easily? I will do a search and try to install Yum then Ntop.

Thank you for your help and time.

If you didn't expressly remove it or stop it from being installed then Fedora should have a version yum already installed.
First run "yum update yum" just to be up to date on yum. Then run yum install ntop. If you already have the RPM downloaded then cd to the directory where it is and type, "yum localinstall ./ntop.rpm" Should install dependencies for you.
Good luck

Thanks, but this thread had been closed for TEN YEARS before your post. I think the OP has solved the problem by now, and since the latest is Fedora 22 (19 versions ahead of the OP's original of 3), it may be installed by default at this point.
