logrotate doesn't work for me. The reason seems to be that logrotate expects the pidfile at /run/ while in the systemd unit it is set to /run/suricata/

@jskier I would be glad to co-maintain. Thanks

@amish, credit given, if you want to co-maintain I'm happy to add you!

Also, v6 does not compile for me, I will post a link to output on your package. Also trying different options for rust. I noticed on the suricata forums this is a known issue.

amish commented on 2021-06-22 04:50 (UTC)

Ok. I see that you have already copied a few bits from it. Although without any credit!!

amish commented on 2021-06-22 04:44 (UTC)

See my AUR package

Suricate 6.0.2 compiles fine for me.

Updated to old stable 5. Version 6 has issue with rust library and won't compile as of recent (looking into patch options).

Conflicts with python-sphinx, as currently there is no easy way to build suricata without the docs otherwise (there is discussion about add this in the future).

Suggestions are welcome; mostly meant for testing captures with or running daemon with af-packet.

Credit to amish for the nfqueue package, some of his work worked on this.

Is this package going to be updated? Otherwise please orphan it so someone else may pick up.

I've got this error while compilling:

source-af-packet.c: In function ‘AFPRead’:

source-af-packet.c:646:28: error: ‘SIOCGSTAMP’ undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean ‘SIOCGRARP’?

python-argparse is a required dependency for suricatactl and it is not marked as such

avi9526 commented on 2018-04-30 22:59 (UTC)

please, add logrotate config file

mcd1992 commented on 2017-01-20 14:30 (UTC)

Can we get /etc/suricata/classification.config and /etc/suricata/reference.config added to the backup variable? Every time I update I have to go back and change my classification.config to lower the priority for some things.

@the0: You can import the public key (using gpg --recv-keys F7F9B0A300C1B70D Wrt the build options: you can modify the configure line in the PKGBUILD file to change the configure line (though you do need to pull in some extra dependencies like libnetfilter and libnfnetlink.

Can you please update this package to use stable 3.0.1 version and add "--enable-gccprotect --enable-nfqueue --enable-geoip" options to the configure line? Thanks!

Suricata (Stable) version is 2.0.8, released May 6, 2015 (

Please add an appropriate systemd service file from or

jskier commented on 2015-01-05 15:03 (UTC)

I would recommend using this for the config line (using pkgname var for sysconf creates duplicate folder): --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
