Hi and welcome to LQ.

You probably need to install libpcap-dev.

I downloaded libpcap-dev from ubuntu website.
But it gave error dependency not satisfied tried to remove dependency but it gave further dependency like flex is required when downloaded flex there was another dependency so on.
Is there any way to install all required dependency automatically ?

How about using apt-get or aptitude e.g.

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install libpcap-dev
