How must I install this? - satshow - 02-03-2013 10:34 AM

In the 2.0.4 version I see this script


How must I run this?

The network stats don't work since I update from 2.0.1 to 2.0.4

I use linux here

In order to install WhatPulse on Xubuntu:
  • check the requirements:
    • libQtCore
    • libQtWebKit
    • libqt4-sql
    • libqt4-sql-sqlite
    • openssl-devel
  • apt-get install libqt4-core
    apt-get install libqtwebkit4
    apt-get install libqt4-sql-sqlite
    apt-get install libssl-dev
    apt-get install libpcap0.8
    apt-get install libpcap0.8-dev # the dev one was actually the one that made the "libpcap not available" - message go away....

Then start terminal in the folder where you unpacked the download (the script is simple, just enter to start it, type in the user, Ctrl-c of out it and reboot):

chmod +x setup-input-permissions.sh
sudo ./setup-input-permissions.sh

Next (run whatpulse from wherever you want, or use below, but setcap is needed for network stats):
sudo cp whatpulse /opt/whatpulse
sudo setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin=eip /opt/whatpulse
sudo ln -s /opt/whatpulse /usr/local/bin/whatpulse

Either add whatpulse to your startup, or run it manually after the reboot (it should add itself).

As far as the network stats go, there are some threads, but as one of the devs posted - it's a known issue...
