Default Snort,Base,MySQL & Apache2 On Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)

Hi,

I have followed the steps mentioned in this
http://www.howtoforge.com/intrusion-...on-ubuntu-7.10
till 12. Time to test Snort
and when i run the test i get this

Initializing Network Interface eth1
Decoding Ethernet on interface eth1
database: compiled support for ( )
database: configured to use mysql
database: 'mysql' support is not compiled into this build of snort

ERROR: If this build of snort was obtained as a binary distribution (e.g., rpm,
or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the necessary
'mysql' support.

If this build of snort was compiled by you, then re-run the
the ./configure script using the '--with-mysql' switch.
For non-standard installations of a database, the '--with-mysql=DIR'
syntax may need to be used to specify the base directory of the DB install.

See the database documentation for cursory details (doc/README.database).
and the URL to the most recent database plugin documentation.
Fatal Error, Quitting..

i have compiled the latest version of snort available i.e v2.8.0.1 with the switches mentioned in the tutorial.i did nt miss any step or encounterd any errors till that step.how should i go about furthur....?


Thank You,
Frk

Code:

No, not if configure didn't report any errors...

Do you have libmysqlclient15-dev and php5-mysql installed?
