The "generic" notes for putting this thing together are below. Here's the
short version.
The quick install notes for getting people up and running in with minimal fuss
are below. Detailed instructions will follow later.
1. *** Make sure you have libpcap HEADERS installed!!! ***
2. ./
3. ./configure
4. make
5. make install
6. Create a sample rules file (eg. look at etc/barnyard2.conf)
7. barnyard2 -?
Enable debugging options (bugreports and developers only).
Support for Tcl, turn this on if you want to use the Sguil plugin. An
alternative location can be supplied for non-standard Tcl installs.
Specify location for pcap header files.
Support for mysql, turn this on if you want to use ACID/BASE with MySQL.
NOTE: Specifying a directory will be deprecated in the future.
Specify location for mysql client library.
Specify location for mysql header files.
Support for ODBC databases, turn this on if you want to use ACID/BASE with
a non-listed DB.
Support for Postgresql databases, turn this on if you want to use ACID/BASE
with PostgreSQL.
Support for Oracle databases, turn this on if you want to use ACID/BASE
with Oracle.
These are generic installation instructions.
The `configure' shell script attempts to guess correct values for various
system-dependent variables used during compilation. It uses those values to
create a `Makefile' in each directory of the package. It may also create one or
more `.h' files containing system-dependent definitions. Finally, it creates a
shell script `config.status' that you can run in the future to recreate the
current configuration, a file `config.cache' that saves the results of its
tests to speed up reconfiguring, and a file `config.log' containing compiler
output (useful mainly for debugging `configure').
If you need to do unusual things to compile the package, please try to
figure out how `configure' could check whether to do them, and mail diffs or
instructions to the address given in the `README' so they can be considered for
the next release. If at some point `config.cache' contains results you don't
want to keep, you may remove or edit it.
The file `' is used to create `configure' by a program called
`autoconf'. You only need `' if you want to change it or
regenerate `configure' using a newer version of `autoconf'.
The simplest way to compile this package is:
1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
`./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're using
`csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
`sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
`configure' itself.
Running `configure' takes awhile. While running, it prints some messages
telling which features it is checking for.
2. Type `make' to compile the package.
3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with the
4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the source code
directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the files that
`configure' created (so you can compile the package for a different kind
of computer), type `make distclean'. There is also a
`make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly for the
package's developers. If you use it, you may have to get all sorts of
other programs in order to regenerate files that came with the
