Installing Libtrace

Required Software:

  • automake-1.9
  • libpcap-0.8
  • flex and bison

Highly Recommended Software:

  • zlib-dev

Optional Software:

  • DAG 2.4 or 2.5 libraries (required if you wish to capture using a DAG card)

Compiling and Installing Libtrace

./configure
make
make install

By default, libtrace will install to /usr/local ; this can be changed by adding --prefix=<install location> to the configure line. Other configuration options, if required, can be viewed by running ./configure --help.

Following installation, you may need to add the line '/usr/local/lib' to your /etc/ld.so.conf and run 'ldconfig' as root.
