Skipfish - No such file or directory

A play around with Skipfish to see if I can automate security scans

I wanted to play about with Google's Skipfish to see if it could automate any of my security scans and grabbed the source code from the code library.

When I tried to make the file whilst running Ubuntu 9.10 I was presented with the following error:

cc -L/usr/local/lib/ -L/opt/local/lib skipfish.c -o skipfish -O3 -Wno-format -Wall -funsigned-char -g -ggdb -I/usr/local/include/ -I/opt/local/include/ -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=0 \

Some digging about made me realise this is a fairly common problem even if your machine has a fairly good set of dependencies downloaded.

If you run the following command it should act as a catchall and set you up to be able to play with this tool.

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev build-essential zlibc zlib-bin libidn11-dev libidn11
