Description

I would really love to start using suricatasc, but the suricata binary in the Ubuntu PPA is not compiled with unix socket support.

Seems like just adding a build dependency on libjansson-dev and runtime dependencies on libjansson4 (for unix socket support) and python-simplejson (for suricatasc) should get it working...

Thanks!

This seems to have been reverted in the 1.4.1 upgrade. :(

Would appreciate it being fixed again so I can use suricatasc!

Thanks.

Also, looks like the next version of suricata will have an --enable-unix-socket option as well, so wonder if you should just go ahead and add that to the configure invocation now. See https://github.com/inliniac/suricata/pull/332

It will be re-enabled in 1.4.2. We disabled it because with unix socket enabled PPA package generation failed for a number of Ubuntu versions due to a libjansson library version issue.

Is it enabled in the current PPA?

Not at the moment.
There was an issue with unix-socket (IIRC that is cleared now). I can try/test re-enabling it in the daily and beta/rc builds?
