Nutz and Boltz

Posted in Commentary at 10:02 pm by Michael Sweeney Media

Well.. I had to take a breather and go get my copy of Harry Potter at midnight. It was alot of fun and to be honest, there were some not so balanced people wandering around there. But I digress…

So, I installed the newest developement kit (XCode) from Apple to get fun things like gcc so I can compile some non-apple approved software 🙂 Like Ettercap, just as an example of course. So I get the SDK installed and I find a site called “Darwinports” which gives the tools to use the BSD port ability to install packages(ports)

I used the binary installation for Tiger but I did have to use this :

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/bin

This was all I need to configure for port to work as you can see here:

sudo port install ettercap-ng 0.7.1

And Port was off and running downloading the various requirements that ettercap needed.

MAC-G5:~ mikesweeney$ sudo port install ettercap-ng 0.7.1

    From the ettercap distro readme, comes a useful tip:

    thanks to ‘rgovostes’ for this instructions.

    Launch FinkCommander and search for the following software. Select the
    appropriate files and press command-shift-i to begin installing them – it’ll
    take a long time, don’t let your machine fall asleep. There may be additional
    packages which you should install, such as ones with -dev or -shlibs
    extensions. There may be multiple versions of the software available – if in
    doubt, go with the latest copy.

    autoconf >= 2.57-2
    automake >= 1.7.6-2
    bison >= 1.875-1
    dlcompat >= 20030629-15
    libnet >=
    libpcap >= 0.8.1-1
    libpoll >= 1.4-11
    libtool >= 1.5-1
    ncurses >= 5.3-20031018-2
    openssl >= 0.9.7c-3
    pcre >= 4.3-1
