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

32Installation FAQ:
33
34Q. I've installed libpcap but I'm still getting the following error:
35"libpcap0.8 or greater is required to compile libtrace. If you have installed
36it in a non-standard location please use LDFLAGS to specify the location of
37the library"?
38
39A. You need to install the development version of the pcap library.
40For example, Ubuntu/Debian users will need to install the libpcap0.8-dev
41package in addition to the libpcap0.8 package.
