Firstly, is there somewhere where the process for compiling so rules is well documented? I've spent quite some time with google and turned up an old FAQ entry that was not very helpful and nothing much else.
What I have done is:
in the snort source dir -- create so_rules/.
copy the so_rules from the VRT tarball into this directory
cd to so_rules/src
and I get:
[rful011@monitor-dmzo src]$ make ls: web-misc_*.c: No such file or directory ls: sql_*.c: No such file or directory ls: multimedia_*.c: No such file or directory cc1: unrecognized option `-Wno-strict-aliasing' make: *** [p2p_winny] Error 1
anyone have any idea what is going on?
I have googled on "-Wno-strict-aliasing" and turned up a few posts to various lists from people who had had this error in the context of gcc bugs.
In the end I simply removed the option from the CFLAGS and everything compiled.
Perhaps an issue with the version of gcc on RHE 3 ( The box is scheduled for an upgrade...)
