Description

I use Centos7(docker) to run suricata4.1.4,but I use "make install" lua 5.3.5 to instead of system lua5.1.4, just like ln \-s /<mylua 5.3.5>/lua /usr/bin/lua . I can use lua 5.3.4 in terminal.And I also usr luarocks install redis-lua and luasockets, them worked.
But when I run suricata,it only use system lua5.1.4,so my suricata can't working.Is there some setting to appoint lua?I holp somebody can help me to use lua5.3.5.
this is my error log:

Is there no system package for a newer lua version?
If you just link to the binary that won't be enough.
You can try to run configure and set --with-liblua-includes and --with-liblua-libraries

I fix this error.I modify configure
" # lua pkg-config name differs per OS
LUA_PC_NAME="lua5.1"
LUA_LIB_NAME="lua5.1" "
to
"
LUA_PC_NAME="lua5.3"
LUA_LIB_NAME="lua5.3"
".
So it worked with lua5.3.
Thank you!
