When I want to install or configure libpcap in Ubuntu 11 for snort application, it says

Fatal error: can't create pcap-linux.o: Permission denied 
make: *** [pcap-linux.o] Error 1

Some one know the solution?

please provide us with the commands you used (and the output). For instance, since it is a permissions problem: did you use sudo? –  Rinzwind Apr 27 '13 at 7:10
