Make Installation fails

Hi,

I am trying to get started with Suricata, and eventually be able to contribute. However, I get a cbindgen error while installing even though I already have all Rust dependencies installed.

I have attached the config.log files and the error logs(both as a screenshot and a link) as I am unsure which is the preferred way for posting error logs. Please let me know so I can do it the right way the next time.

Please find the error log here.

This is the guide I followed to install Suricata.

Are you doing the ./configure and make as a user, then doing sudo make install? If so, depending on your distribution, sudo -E make install might help.

Yes. I tried that too but it doesn’t seem to work. There seems to be problem with cbindgen(or my rust ecosystem maybe?). I tried uninstalling and reinstalling cbindgen but I get a spurious network error with cargo install rust. :frowning:

This error /home/sumera/.cargo/registry/index/github.com-1ecc6299db9ec823/.git/FETCH_HEAD' is locked: Permission denied; is likely due to some files not being owned by you (did you use git as root?

Try sudo chown -R sumera /home/sumera/.cargo

So we have an issue where when using tools installed by Rustup, they are not seen under sudo. This is fixed in the 6.0 beta’s, but the workaround for now would be something like:

sudo chown -R user:user .
make
sudo env PATH=$PATH make install-full

Make sure to replace user with your username that is building Suricata. This should work in sudo environments that will never pass the PATH through like Fedora and CentOS.

Hi,
I was able to install cbindgen, thanks, @Jeff_Lucovsky !

However there still seems to be some problems with rustup. I followed the instructions but still get the error : “no override and no default toolchain set”.

I tried reinstalling rustup and setting the default as suggested in some places:

 ~   ~  rustup default stable                                                  ✔  base Py 
info: using existing install for 'stable-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu'
info: default toolchain set to 'stable-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu'

  stable-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu unchanged - rustc 1.46.0 (04488afe3 2020-08-24)

but this doesn’t seem to work either.

Can you provide the commands you used to get here? Including any uses of sudo or switching to root.

Hi,

Sure. I deleted Suricata and ran the following from scratch:

git clone https://github.com/OISF/suricata.git
cd suricata
./autogen.sh
./configure
sudo chown -R sumera:sumera .
make

I got a libhtp error here. So I installed that.

cd libhtp
./autogen.sh
./configure
make
sudo make install
cd ../
./configure
sudo chown -R sumera:sumera
make

I got a rules not installed as update rules not available error. I figured this might be because I didn’t use make clean.

make clean
sudo env PATH=$PATH make install-full

This led to the error I described previously; I tried troubleshooting with reinstalling and installing rustup again but that seems not to work either . :((

I don’t believe this should be an issue with git master which it looks like you are using. What distribution are you using?

I am using Pop OS. Actually I tried it on a different Ubuntu Budgie laptop too but am getting the same error. Maybe I will just reinstall Rust and give it a shot.

Hi,

So, I tried again and have a few doubts. This is what I tried though:

Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the '-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the 'LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the '-Wl,-rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to '/etc/ld.so.conf'

more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

So, make install-conf works, but there is a problem with install-full as rules are unable to get installed. Is there a way to install the rules separately? I do see a rules folder in my suricata directory with the following contents:

 ~/E/suricata/rules  master ?1  ls                                                    ✔  base Py

files.rules             Makefile.am            smb-events.rules

Something else I noticed is that the suricata-update folder does not have a Makefile. My understanding is that automake uses Makefile.am to generate Makefile.in and configure uses Makefile.in to generate the Makefile. But ./configure does seem to run correctly on my pc.
What is going wrong here? :confused:

Nothing really wrong. Suricata when checked out from git does not include suricata-update, so you’ll need to bundle it yourself when building from a git checout. Our CI system uses a command like the following to bundle suricata-update:

        (cd suricata-update &&
	     curl -L \
	          https://github.com/OISF/suricata-update/archive/master.tar.gz | \
	         tar zxvf - --strip-components=1)

Unfortunately its not as simple as just git clone like you can do with libhtp.

Hi,

I tried that, and I am not yet sure what exactly I did after that, but it seems sudo make install-full worked. (Yay, at least no errors this time).

However, when I run /usr/local/bin/suricata -c /usr/local/etc/suricata/suricata.yaml -i eth0 , I get the following error:

/usr/local/bin/suricata: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/bin/suricata: undefined symbol: htp_config_set_lzma_layers

I also don’t seem to have the following files classification.config and reference.config files in my suricata folder.

I am so sorry if I am creating unnecessary noise here.

Can you try ldconfig /usr/local/lib and see if that helps? Some Linux distributions need it, other’s don’t.

make install-conf (which is part of install-full) should have installed classification.config, etc along with suricata.yaml in /usr/local/etc/suricata.

I did sudo make install-conf. I still can’t find the .config files but at least suricata does run. Thanks!
