[Oisf-users] Suricata compilation issues with pf_ring

Hello all,

My apologies if this has been asked and answered previously, but I'm new to the list. I'm attempting to compile Suricata 2.0.8 on RHEL 7 with pf_ring (zero-copy) support. I encountered some problems while running configure during the linking of the pf_ring libraries. I found another listserv post that suggested setting LIBS="-lrt -lnuma" prior to running configure. This does indeed get me past the problems linking pf_ring, but later on I believe it causes issues with linking libpcap and file. The necessary packages are installed, and if I compile Suricata without pf_ring support, everything configures and compiles as expected.

Here's a link to the output that I get when I compile with the LIBS variable defined, and without:

And here's a snipped of the errors in config.log when run configure with and without the LIBS variable defined:

If anyone has seen this previously, can you suggest a workaround? Any help would be appreciated!
