Wondering if any has managed to get Snort working on Fedora 12?

Here are the packages i have installed:
  • mysql-server-5.1.42-7.fc12.i686
  • snort-
  • base-1.4.4

I've managed from what i can tell to get snortd/mysql and base installed and working to some extent. I can see snort is logging to /var/log/snort/alert so it can recording and i can access the snort DB in mysql, base loads fine except it's now showing any data.

Thinking it must be a permissions issues somewhere or snort isn't storing the data properly to mysql.

I've checked my apache logs and snort logs can't find any issues anywhere..

Re: snort

I'm trying to get Snort working on Fedora 13, but I get an error during the make command:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz

Haven't figured out how to proceed next. Still searching Google and thought about looking here.

Re: snort

I think you need to install zlib-devel

EDIT: Just noticed this is a very old thread, well HTH.
If it is not broken, tweak it... If you break Fedora you get to keep both pieces :p

Re: snort

Okay, that was brilliant advice because it worked. Not the best idea to tag onto a very old thread, but the title was the same as I wanted to use. Thanks for the excellent suggestion.
