[Oisf-users] Ubuntu 14 + Hyperscan

Hi Julio,

(I’m on the Hyperscan team at Intel)

This looks to me like you have built Hyperscan without shared libraries, so Suricata is having trouble linking to it. Assuming you built Hyperscan yourself, you should be able to solve this issue by rebuilding Hyperscan with the –DBUILD_STATIC_AND_SHARED=1 flag to CMake.

The instructions in the Suricata documentation show how to do it:


Best regards,

Hi all,

I'm trying to build suricata with hyperscan support under Ubuntu 14.04, but configure returns me the following error

checking for libhs... yes
checking hs.h usability... yes
checking hs.h presence... yes
checking for hs.h... yes
checking for hs_compile in -lhs... no
checking for hs_valid_platform... yes

Hyperscan headers are present, but link test failed.
Check that you have a shared library and C++ linkage available.

Do I need to add any other package or any other configuration??
