Hello ,Am trying to install Xymon on my Raspberry but getting below error while doing "Make". Can you please adivce where and what I am doing wrong. Even though I have installed c-ares-1.12.0. Please advice. pi at raspberrypi:~/xymon/xymon-4.3.28 $ sudo lsb_release -a

Configuration script for Xymon

This script asks a few questions and builds a Makefile to compile Xymon

Checking your make-utility
Checking pre-requisites for building Xymon

Checking for fping ...
Xymon has a built-in ping utility (xymonping)
However, it is not yet fully stable and therefore it
may be best to use the external fping utility instead.
I found fping in /usr/local/sbin/fping
Do you want to use it [Y/n] ?
Checking to see if '/usr/local/sbin/fping' works ... is alive
OK, will use '/usr/local/sbin/fping' for ping tests
NOTE: If you are using an suid-root wrapper, make sure the 'xymond'
      user is also allowed to run fping without having to enter passwords.
      For 'sudo', add something like this to your 'sudoers' file:
      xymon ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/local/sbin/fping

Checking for PCRE ...
Compiling with PCRE library works OK
Linking with PCRE library works OK

Checking for C-ARES library ...
Compiling with c-ares library works OK
C-ARES version: Found 1.10.0 - too old, will use included version, require 1.12.0
make: *** [Makefile.test-cares:8: test-link] Error 1
ERROR: Cannot link with c-ares library.
The system C-ARES library is missing or not usable. I will use the version shipped with Xymon

Checking for RRDtool ...
Not RRDtool 1.0.x, checking for 1.2.x
Compiling with RRDtool works OK
Linking with RRDtool works OK

Checking for OpenSSL ...
Compiling with SSL library works OK
Linking with SSL library works OK
Checking if your SSL library has SSLv2 enabled
Will support SSLv2 when testing SSL-enabled network services
Checking if your SSL library has SSLv3 enabled
Will support SSLv3 when testing SSL-enabled network services

Xymon can use the OpenSSL library to test SSL-enabled services
like https-encrypted websites, POP3S, IMAPS, NNTPS and TELNETS.
If you have the OpenSSL library installed, I recommend that you enable this.

Do you want to be able to test SSL-enabled services (y) ?
