16Installing libtrace:
17
18./bootstrap.sh (only if you've cloned the source from GitHub)
19./configure
20make
21make install
22
23The above series of commands will install libtrace into /usr/local/lib. If
24you wish to install to a non-standard location, append the
25--prefix=DIR option to the ./configure command. ./configure also takes
26a number of other options - run ./configure --help to view a comprehensive
27list.
28
29You may need to add the library location (e.g. /usr/local/lib) to your
30/etc/ld.so.conf and run 'ldconfig' as root.

34Installation FAQ:
35
36Q. I've installed libpcap but I'm still getting the following error:
37"libpcap0.8 or greater is required to compile libtrace. If you have installed
38it in a non-standard location please use LDFLAGS to specify the location of
39the library"?
40
41A. You need to install the development version of the pcap library.
42For example, Ubuntu/Debian users will need to install the libpcap0.8-dev
43package in addition to the libpcap0.8 package.
44
45
46Q. What operating systems do you support?
47
48A. Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and OpenBSD. Windows is not supported.
