idmeflib installation

Added by Alaa Kanaieh about 1 year ago

Hello,

I want to work only with the 'idmeflib', I tried to install it but it seems that there is something missing. We have faced the following problems:

1- There is no 'configure' script to install, only 'configure.in' and I have got the following error when running it :
./configure.in: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `[libidmef_major_version],'
./configure.in: line 1: `m4_define([libidmef_major_version], [3])'

2- There is no makefile to build and I have got an error when executing the make command :
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

Can you please provide me with the instructions or a guide on how we can install the IDMEF library (libidmef) and any further details that could be helpful.

Thank you

Hello,

You have to run autogen.sh before all actions. It will generate configure and Makefile files.

Then you can run ./configure and make install

Hey,

Thank you Thomas ANDREJAK for the reply.

I am using Python 2.7.12 and I ran successfully the autogen.sh as well as configure and make as below:
sudo ./configure --with-python2=/usr/bin/python

but it is still not working. I couldn't figure out the reason behind this since it gave me no errors while installation.

Python 2.7.12 (default, Dec 4 2017, 14:50:18)
[GCC 5.4.0 20160609] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

import idmef

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named idmef

any hint or missing step?

Thank you

Regards,
Alaa

Hello,

I think that you have installed libidmef into /usr/local but not in /usr

You have to recall your configure with

--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var

then make && make install
