OK that is odd, I was building with devtools and believe that pulls in base but I guess not.

Both are part of the base group which is assumed to be installed although the packaging guidelines don't specify this.

'procps-ng' 'iputils' are needed as deps, otherwise:

checking for sysctl... no configure: error: cannot find required executable, bailing out

checking for ping... no configure: error: cannot find required executable, bailing out

I will add screen as an optional dependency. The service files here are provided by upstream, so please file a request to them on github.

screen is required by link-balancer

please also add link-balancer.service. I am a noob at writing systemd unit file. I am currently using the following systemd unit for link-balancer

Description=Link Balancer for FireHOL

ExecStart=/sbin/screen -S 'link-balancer' -d -m /sbin/link-balancer loop                                                               
ExecStop=/sbin/screen -S 'link-balancer' -X kill

Upstream just did this :D

It might be a good idea to add Wants/Before option in [Unit] of both services:

Seems to dump stuff in /usr/var/{run,spool}/firehol ... ?

I added '-localstatedir=/var' to configure to fix mine ...

Ataraxy I fail to see your point. There was a ping6 problem like years ago, but it has been fixed.

Ataraxy commented on 2017-11-26 13:43

I also got:

checking for ping6... no configure: error: cannot find required executable, bailing out ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I fixed this by reinstalling iputils.
