Hi, I have been having very frustrating problems lately with installing things. The problems start when I configure.

configure:24993: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c -ldl -ldl >&5
/tmp/ccqVtOow.o: In function `main':
/home/mason/Download/ettercap-NG-0.7.3/conftest.c:77: undefined reference
to `lt_dlopen'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure:24999: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h. */

and this

configure: failed program was: #ifndef __cplusplus choke me #endif

Your error was an undefined reference to lt_dlopen (a Libtool function), indicating that the Libtool library wasn't linked with your executable.

I have just installed it, I'm checking out the documentation.... how can it help me with this?

Oh ok. Well, then how do I link the libtool library to it?

Usually having it installed does the trick. If not, you may have to adjust your library search paths.

Well I do have it installed, so how do I adjust those searchpaths?
