    11=== I have a DAG card but libtrace is not detecting it during the configuration stage? ===
    2 You can manually specify where your DAG libraries are located by using the --with-dag=DIR option for ./configure. DIR needs to be the location you installed the DAG software to, not the location of the DAG device e.g. DIR might be /usr/local/dag not /dev/dag0.

DIR needs to be the location you installed the DAG software to, not the location of the DAG device e.g. DIR might be /usr/local/dag not /dev/dag0. More recent DAG drivers (DAG 2.5 or later) will typically install to /usr/local/dag and libtrace will search there by default. DAG 2.4 drivers tend to install less cleanly so the location of the DAG source code should be specified using --with-dag to help libtrace locate the required libraries and header files.
