snort-users: Re: [Snort-users] Problems compiling with --enable-

Re: [Snort-users] Problems compiling with --enable-inline on CentOS 5.1

Two other things to try:

  1. Under your Snort source directory in src/inline.c, try adding the following line just under #include <libnet.h>:

#include <net/ethernet.h>

If this does not work, try:

2) In src/inline.h, just under #include "snort.h", try adding the following:

struct ether_addr
{

     u_char ether_addr_octet[6];
};

and see if that works. Let us know.

Thanks,
Todd
