While playing around with pbnj or scanpbnj on Backtrack just a little bit ago I received an error when attempting to have scanpbnj output results to a CSV file. The error received is easily resolved by installing a single package on Backtrack. Below the error is described in more detail along with details about how to install the package that resolves the error message.
I ran into an annoying problem today. I normally use Firefox for all my pentesting needs and I use google chrome as my default browser for everything else. I was setting up a new Backtrack image for myself and I installed the .deb archive for google chrome which is available on the google web site. When I went to start it up I received the following error message.
Below I will outline the simple steps to overcome this error:
While running a configure script before compiling an application on CentOS Linux I received an error regarding libdaemon which caused the configure script to fail. Using YUM I was able to list the available packages that included libdaemon in the name, install one, and then move past that error in the configure script. Below I show how to list packages using YUM with libdaemon in the name and then show example output of installing libdaemon-devel which is the package needed by the configure script.
While running a configure script before compiling an application on CentOS Linux I received an error noting that libgdbm could not be found. Below I display the actual error output that interrupted the configure script, how the correct RPM package to resolve the error was located, and the output of installing the new package on CentOS Linux via YUM.
While running a configure script to eventually compile an application during testing on CentOS Linux I received an error stating that libexpat and/or libbsdxml could not be found. On CentOS you will only need to install libexpat-devel as shown in the below example following the output of the configure error and how we located what package installed libexpat via yum.
