#4226 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add liblinear

Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords: nmap


I came across this in nmap, as a recommended external dependency

with a note that the internal version will be used if any of the recommended deps are not installed. At that point I wondered why a recommended dependency wasn't in the book. I guess this is history, lots of things used to be external unless they were required. I was expecting a straight CMMI.

In fact, liblinear comes with a Makefile to create things, but you

have to manually install them. Worse, the default target only builds the programs 'predict' and 'train' which may or may not be useful. Nmap is actually looking for at least one of the headers, and the library - you need to run 'make lib' to create And all of these need to be installed individually.

There is also a python directory with its own Makefile - running

'make' there actually recreates in the TLD. There are also two Python scripts - no idea if those ought to be installed anywhere ;-)
