In stead of compiling Suricata over and over again on different hosts I have… I just made a debian package for my Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 systems.
Its a simple build, and Ill hopefully update it with time to incorporate different usage and install help etc.
Right now its just aimed at being a simple IDS using libpcap.
You can find suricata and other cool NSM stuff at my gamelinux PPA found here.
apt-get install suricata
cd /etc/suricata/ && wget http://rules.emergingthreats.net/open/suricata/emerging.rules.tar.gz
Feedback and thoughts are welcome and needed 🙂 !
