In my previous article I was building SIPcrack from source on the Ubuntu 10.04 platform. I ran into a few erros during the build. The first error is explained here but after that I ran into one more. Below I describe how to get past the pcap.h error. This fix should work on any version of ubuntu that is giving you a pcap.h missing error.
I was building a tool called Sipcrack today from source and ran into some problems. The platform I was using was ubuntu 10.04 LTS but if you are getting this error on any Ubuntu platform the solution is most likely going to be the same.
Today I was doing some testing with OpenCL and needed to install ATI Stream for one of the tests I was performing but I ran into an error during the compile process. The error related to glu.h which was not found during the compile process using make. Below I describe the error in more detail as well as what was done to resolve the error and make the glu.h file available on the server.
Yesterday I needed to upgrade a single application on CentOS Linux. First I figured out that the application was part of the coreutils RPM package which is currently only available up to version coreutils 5.97-23 on CentOS. The current coreutils package is already up to coreutils 8.5 and upgrading coreutils is near impossible on CentOS because of other package requirements that it needs. Below are instructions on how to download the coreutils source, build the coreutils applications in a new directory, and then upgrade one application.
Earlier I was compiling the coreutils application on CentOS Linux and ran into an issue after using the “make” command. At first I was confused because I wasn’t doing anything complex but then I realized that I had simply mistyped an environment variable I had previously set. Below I describe the actual error, what was mistyped, and how I resolved the problem.
