trouble installing snort libdnet.1: cannot open, no such file


Need help,

I'm looking for the best way for a Linux beginner to install Snort.

I'm a windows user learning Linux, I've played with Mint, Ubuntu, kali, and Security Onion. I'm a Network Security Analyst and need to be able to use Snort to test rules, run pcap's, and as a sensor at home for general practice.

I followed a tutorial off of youtube that seemed very good but am getting an error-
"snort: error while loading shared libraries: libdnet.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

This should be pretty close to the complete list of commands I ran:

sudo apt*get install flex bison build*essential checkinstall libpcap*dev
libnet1*dev libpcre3*dev libmysqlclient15*dev libnetfilter*queue*dev
iptables*dev

wget https://libdnet.googlecode.com/files/libdnet*1.12.tgz

tar xvfvz libdnet*1.12.tgz

./configure "CFLAGS=*fPIC

make

sudo checkinstall

sudo dpkg *i
libdnet_1.12*1_amd64.deb and sudo ln *s /usr/local/lib/libdnet.1.0.1
/usr/lib/libdnet.1

Download files from: https://www.snort.org/downloads
daq-2.0.5.tar.gz
snort-2.9.7.3.tar.gz

tar xvfvz daq*2.0.5.tar.gz

cd daq*2.0.5

./configure

make

sudo checkinstall

sudo dpkg *i daq_2.0.2*1_amd64.deb

Download snort rules:
snortrules-snapshot-2973.tar.gz
tar xvfvz snort*2.9.6.1.tar.gz

cd snort*2.9.6.1

./configure

make

sudo checkinstall

sudo dpkg *i snort_2.9.7.3*1_amd64.deb
/usr/sbin/snort

sudo ldconfig -v

snort -V

The "snort -V" is where I get the error at and here is the url where I watched the tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVvS8Peb2fY

I did try "sudo apt-get install libdnet" I received this error "ERROR! dnet header not found" Any help with this or an updated tutorial that can be followed to the "T" without errors would be great.
Thank you for your time.

first off
WHAT operating system is this ????

it is one of the Debian family of OS's

if this is KALI

then REGISTER on the kali forum
http://forums.kali.org/
( apparently a lot of new kali users can not figure out how to register here)



kali is a very SPECIAL!!! os and gives Linux EXPERTS!!! A VERY HARD TIME

what WORKS in Ubuntu might NOT!!!! in Kali

also WHY try to build "libdnet" from source

just open your package manager ( synaptic )
and install from there
put checks in the check box for it

libdumbnet-1.12.6 in in the base Debian 8.1 repos
Code:
su -
apt-get update
apt-get install libdnet1 libdnet-dev
