    Question Kismet Installation

    I am trying to install Kismet on openSUSE 11.0. Here is the output:

    The next command should be $make and #make install. But they don't work, I get this message:

    stacy-suse:/home/ryan/kismet-2008-05-R1 # make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

    and this:

    stacy-suse:/home/ryan/kismet-2008-05-R1 # make install
    make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.

    I don't have any clue on why they won't work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    It's all right there -- called "dependency h3ll". Obviously you need those.

    Look each up in: RPM Search ; look for the suse version & it will tell you what app provides it; install it with Yast.

    Better is to install Kismet rpm and let Yast take care of the dependencies:
    Webpin
    then search for Kismet:
    Webpin

    It's not you, really... but I wonder when reading went out of style...

    The LAST message of the './configure' command was

    > configure: error: Unable to find libncurses or libcurses


    Which means it can't find those.

    Go to Yast, search for ncurses, install the devel package for it.
    (ncurses-devel), or install it through zypper:

    zypper install ncurses-devel

    Then try your './configure' command again.

    You MAY find other dependencies you need to compile the kismet source... if
    you see 'libxxx...', then search for 'xxx', and install the -devel package.
    Repeat as necessary.

    ========

    Alternatively, you *COULD* just search for and install kismet through yast or
    zypper and not even bother compiling it. It's available from the main oss
    repos...

    zypper install kismet

    All done!!

    PERHAPS what this place needs is a BIGGER 'sticky' that new (to Linux *or* SUSE)
    canNOT miss....which says something like:

    You have heard the FUD about how few applications there are for Linux, and how
    terribly difficult they are to install and set up (so, if you are power-user,
    and not one of those geeky hackers, you better stick with the Herd's OS).
    However, no matter how many times you have been told otherwise, it is NOT always
    required to build/compile _every_ time you want to try something new. There
    are a few thousand application ready to go, and several ways to lay them into
    your system *EASILY*. Depending on the flavor [SUSE, Red Hat/Fedora,
    Debian/Ubuntu, etc] of Linux you choose, you may have available some or all of
    the means mentioned in:

    http://en.opensuse.org/Concepts#Soft...ers_.28SPMs.29

    have fun NOT following the sheep.
