random functions DONE¶
random, srandom, rand_r are not available.
format specifier gives warnings %llu DONE¶
Replace with %PRIu64
ntohl returns u_long¶
Gives warnings so needs cast to uint32_t
memmem not available DONE¶
Probably replace with some of the spm code we already have.
endianess and wordsize checks not working DONE¶
Need better check.
glob.h / glob support not available DONE¶
Either need to find another way to do glob or simply don't support this feature. Need a fallback then.
pcap -> wpcap DONE¶
In cygwin guides we required renaming wpcap.lib to pcap.lib. We can also just handle wpcap in configure.
signals not available DONE¶
All signals code fails to compile. Need to look at how Windows does it.
In the mintty ctrl-c doesn't work but in regular cmd.exe it does.
mkdir takes no 2nd arg¶
On linux/bsd mkdir takes a second arg to set permissions. Not on windows. Need a wrapper.
unix socket DONE¶
Various header files are used w/o checks, fails to build on windows. E.g.sys/un.h
uint type not available: use uint32_t DONE¶
core dump config code compilation DONE¶
Header sys/resource.h not available
pidfile / kill¶
kill() call not available
struct tm has no tm_gmtoff, tm_zone
strptime() not available
libhtp compiler warning¶
"warning: ISO C does not support the 'I64' ms_printf length modifier [-Wformat]"
libhtp defaults to -pedantic. It needs to be followed by -Wno-format to suppress this message.
When suricata is started in a regular command prompt, the color codes are printed. Need to figure out how to detect this.
tips 'n tricks¶
To start the compiled build outside of the env use path:
cd c:\msys64\home\victor\dev\suricata set PATH=C:\msys64\mingw64\bin;%PATH% src\suricata.exe -c suricata.yaml -l . -i 192.168.122.185
