@pohl7589 You can create your own AUR package for vectorscan and mention provides=(hyperscan) in it. And use it instead of hyperscan for snort-nfqueue

Maybe vectorscan would be an alternative to hyperscan on aarch64. Apparently there is no package for it yet and I haven't tried compiling the source yet.

@zbe Hyperscan can not be added to optdepends. As it is compile time dependency not run time. So when installing suricata built with hyperscan, pacman will NOT install hyperscan because it will leave it to end user to install it. And suricata will not run because it will fail to find the necessary library.

@amish, I thought hyperscan is required by suricata now. I admit, I haven't looked at documentation, but if Suricata works fine without it, wouldn't it be preferred to add hyperscan to optdepends instead?

BTW, thanks for adding "--enable-geoip", one less thing to edit now for me.

@zbe - great. Although I am not maintainer of hyperscan so I am not much aware about it.

Or other option is that you can remove hyperscan from PKGBUILD of suricata and build suricata without hyperscan.

@amish, I will try and see what works - and report when I find something.

EDIT: I managed to edit PKGBUILD to build v5.3.0 from different repo. Suricata installs and works AFAICS, but I did not test if hyperscan actually works.

Here is PKGBUILD for anyone else with the same problem:

@zbe May be you can build hyperscan for aarch64 using PKGBUILD from:

zbe commented on 2021-07-01 13:51 (UTC)

This no longer works on aarch64, since there is no aarch64 hyperscan package.

As mentioned, rust stable and package files to compile:

UPDATE: using rust-bin, an older. binary version in AUR, and suricata 6 builds and works.

ERROR: Jansson is now required.

Go get it from your distribution or from:

Ubuntu/Debian: apt install libjansson-dev
CentOS: yum install jansson-devel
Fedora: dnf install jansson-devel

Can this please be rectified by added jansson as a dependency in the PKGBUILD?
