Bug #1361


trusty ppa is broken

Added by god lol about 9 years ago. Updated almost 9 years ago.

Target version:
Affected Versions:


Due to availability of newer version of htp upstream and incompatibility of suricata with it the automated upgrade will break suricata beta installed from ppa at

This could be worked-around with apt pinning but ideally upgrading packages in the repo would be a better solution. Also having corresponding instructions regarding installation and the need for apt-pinning would be nice as well.

Suricata stable/current beta is supposed to be compiled with 0.5.15/16 -

We should find a better solution to handle that in the packaging itself. At the moment we only require that htp > than_a_version_number.
I have also updated the wiki page -

Working on a possible fix in the packaging to handle this....

Are there plans to port suricata to latest htp library? This would naturally resolve this issue by relying on distribution to supply desired htp dependency instead of packaging old version alongside with suricata.
