I am trying to install ossec agent (2.8.1) on sles 11 sp1 and when running the ./install.sh I get this error:
cc: error trying to exec ‘as’: execvp: No such file or directory
I did install make and gcc-c++ , but I have the feeling I am missing packages
in /var/log/messages I dont see any logs regarding ossec
here is the complete error:
5- Installing the system - Running the Makefile cc: error trying to exec 'as': execvp: No such file or directory ./Makeall: line 128: ./isbigendian: No such file or directory INFO: Little endian set. *** Making zlib (by Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler) *** make: Entering directory `/tmp/ossec-hids-2.8.1/src/external' cd zlib-1.2.8/; ./configure; make libz.a; Checking for gcc...

The issue is missing a package, but which one
(there are rpm packages for OSSEC and installed them, but they don’t seem to work (to make a long story short))
