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

30Installation FAQ:
31
32Q. I've installed libpcap but I'm still getting the following error:
33"libpcap0.8 or greater is required to compile libtrace. If you have installed
34it in a non-standard location please use LDFLAGS to specify the location of
35the library"?
36
37A. You need to install the development version of the pcap library.
38For example, Ubuntu/Debian users will need to install the libpcap0.8-dev package
39in addition to the libpcap0.8 package.
