trafshow is a simple little program that displays the current traffic on a network interface.
It listens on a given interface in promiscuous mode and displays information on each connection, its remote address and the amount of traffic going back and forth.
It can easily be installed on a Mac via Macport.
The version of php5 bundled with MAMP doesn’t come with sqlite3 support built-in out of the box. Here’s how to add it, considering the following setup :
- SQLite3 installed through MacPorts
- php5 used through MAMP
I used the php-sqlite3 extension. When you run phpize, make sure you are actually using the one from MAMP by calling it with its full path /Applications/MAMP/bin/php5/bin/phpize.
I then complied the extension with the following flags (both paths are the defaults for macports and MAMP) :
./configure --with-sqlite3=/opt/local/ --with-php-config=/Applications/MAMP/bin/php5/bin/php-config
The make install didn’t copy the librarie to the right php folder :
Installing shared extensions: /Applications/MAMP/bin/php5/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/
Make sure that folder is the right one. You can find your dynamic extensions folder in your php.ini file.
MacPorts installs packages in a non unix-standard location. This can cause problems when trying to compile other software against these packages because they aren’t found by the configure script.
I experienced that problem when trying to compile SDL_image, which depends on libraries such as libpng. I had to configure with the following flags :
./configure CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib"
which indicates in which folders the libraries installed with MacPorts were installed.
