honeyd installation problem


Hi all...

This is my first question at LQ.

I tried to install honeyd today but got error as:
dnet-config not found....

When I looked at config.log....it was bcoz of some conftest.c....

I then looked at config.log of libdnet and found that there are some error over there....Log file is attached

Please help me out.....

I have gcc (with c++ preprocessor) installed.....I have ran ldconfig on installation of this library......Please help me out....I have searched it many times on google but no method is solving it.

Welcome to LQ.

dnet-config not found....
The basic approach is to do : 1) su
2) yum provides */dnet-config

But this particular package is in the rpmforge.repo :
https://rpmrepo.org/RPMforge/Using
.. and after installing the repo, the reply from
'yum provides */dnet-config' is : libdnet-devel

# 'yum -y install libdnet-devel'
will then provide /usr/bin/dnet-config
.....

P.S.: When configure asks for <name>, it usually means
missing package = (lib)<name>-devel
.....

Thanks for the reply.....

I have already installed libdnet....and now I have installed dnet-config in /usr/bin using 'install dnet-config /usr/bin'
and dnet-config is now there in /usr/bin....but now I get a new error....


"addr_cmp in libdnet... configure: error: you need to install a more recent version of libdnet"


Checking config.log again throws me to that confdefs.h error that I have mentioned above....

I do have latest version of libdnet as on sourceforge...

# yum install honeyd

... installs honeyd-1.5b ( honeyd-1.5b-5.el5.rf.i386.rpm )
+ two dependencies, libevent-1.1a-3.2.1.i386.rpm and
libdnsres-0.1a-4.el5.rf.i386.rpm .

But may be you have no Redhat support ?
If you don't want to pay for support, you will probably
end up with an inconsistent system. The right solution
is to use one of the free versions of Redhat EL.
= CentOS 5.4 ( or Scientific Linux SL 5.3 ).
.....

Which version of honeyd are you trying to build ? ?

.. And which old 'libdnet' version did you use ?
.. Better delete all the files, if it is unusable.
# 'make uninstall' may work.
.....
Example i386 packages : (( http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/dag/RPMS/ ))
wget http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...l5.rf.i386.rpm
wget http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...l5.rf.i386.rpm
wget http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...-0.1a-4.el5.rf
wget http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...l5.rf.i386.rpm
wget http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/...l5.rf.i386.rpm
.....

Or if you want to build the latest = honeyd-1.5c-svn-21 :
http://www.honeyd.org/
http://code.google.com/p/honeyd/source/checkout
svn checkout http://honeyd.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ honeyd-read-only

wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...2.fc11.src.rpm
.. edit libevent.spec, line 3 to : Release: 2el5%{?dist}
# rpmbuild -bb libevent.spec
provides libevent-1.4.5-2el5.i386.rpm, libevent-devel-1.4.5-2el5.i386.rpm

cd honeyd-read-only/honeyd/
sh autogen.sh , sh configure , make , # make install
.....

Is your 'architecture' i386 or x86_64 ? ?
And is the installed OS i386 or x86_64 ?
....
