13Installing libtrace:
14
15./bootstrap.sh (only if you've cloned the source from GitHub)
16./configure
17make
18make install
19
20The above series of commands will install libtrace into /usr/local/lib. If
21you wish to install to a non-standard location, append the
22--prefix=DIR option to the ./configure command. ./configure also takes
23a number of other options - run ./configure --help to view a comprehensive
24list.
25
26You may need to add the library location (e.g. /usr/local/lib) to your
27/etc/ld.so.conf and run 'ldconfig' as root.

31Installation FAQ:
32
33Q. I've installed libpcap but I'm still getting the following error:
34"libpcap0.8 or greater is required to compile libtrace. If you have installed
35it in a non-standard location please use LDFLAGS to specify the location of
36the library"?
37
38A. You need to install the development version of the pcap library.
39For example, Ubuntu/Debian users will need to install the libpcap0.8-dev
40package in addition to the libpcap0.8 package.
41
42
43Q. What operating systems do you support?
44
45A. Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and OpenBSD. Windows is not supported.
