Hi All,

I am new to suricata, and am trying to compile it on a Linux machine
running CentOS7.3.
I have pfring installed already on the machine that works with other IDSs
just fine.

When I am trying to configure suricata I get following error:

$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/suricata/3.2.1
--localstatedir=/usr/local/suricata/var --enable-pfring

checking pcap.h usability... yes

checking for pcap_activate in -lpcap... yes
checking for pcap-config... /usr/bin/pcap-config
checking for pcap_set_buffer_size in -lpcap... yes
checking for pfring_open in -lpfring... yes

   ERROR! --enable-pfring was passed but the library version is < 6, go get
   from http://www.ntop.org/products/pf_ring/

Not sure what I am missing here. Any help would be appreciated.
