    Default skipfish -> problem on a backtracku 4 :/

    hey,
    I have backtrack 4. I want to install skipfish (web page scanner by google: skipfish - Project Hosting on Google Code )
    after doing "make" i get does errors:
    Code:
    http_client.c:39:18: error: idna.h: No such file or directory
    http_client.c: In function 'parse_url':
    http_client.c:277: warning: implicit declaration of function 'idna_to_ascii_8z'
    http_client.c:277: error: 'IDNA_SUCCESS' undeclared (first use in this function)
    http_client.c:277: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
    http_client.c:277: error: for each function it appears in.)
    make: *** [skipfish] Error 1
    I have completly no idea what they mean and how to fix them, i am looking forward to get help here. Thank you!

    So skipfish contains a file called http_client.c which makes a call to idna.h and idna.h can't be found. There are a few things you should check.

    1) What do you get when you do a "echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH" at a command prompt?
    2) You should search (via find or locate for idna.h and see if it actually is on your system somewhere).

    Also did you read the docs before playing with it?
    http://code.google.com/p/skipfish/wi...n_the_scanner?
    How to run the scanner?

    To compile it, simply unpack the archive and try make. Chances are, you will need to install libidn first.

    Next, you need to copy the desired dictionary file from dictionaries/ to skipfish.wl. Please read dictionaries/README-FIRST carefully to make the right choice. This step has a profound impact on the quality of scan results later on.

    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Well, no - this won't fix anything at all.
    This is the solution:
    download from Debian -- Details of package libidn11-dev in sid
    dpkg -i lib.......

    if it will prompt about dependends type:

    dpkg --force-all -i lib....

    and it works!

    Hmmm like the skipfish docs say (as quoted above) you have to install libidn

    Amazing!
