Run "autogen.sh" instead.

Please be aware that you'll need "automake/autoconf" to make it work.

Consult the "INSTALL" and "README" files for more.

I have done it

:~/ntop-5.0.1# ./autogen.sh

Starting ntop automatic configuration system v.0.2.3

  Please be patient, there is a lot to do...

1. Testing gnu tools....

You must have svn/subversion installed to compile autogen.sh.
Download the appropriate package for your distribution, or get the
source from http://subversion.tigris.org
:~/ntop-5.0.1# ./configure
-bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
Yes, svn is needed to compile from source.

Why do you want to do that anyway? What's the problem with the precompiled version?

sudo apt-get install ntop -y

I have installed ntop before from APT but it's 4.10 version, I want to install newest version where I download from ntop.org tar.gz file.
So go ahead with svn.

And read the INSTALL file as well as docs/BUILD-NTOP.txt
ls -l configure
the setting might be off or it might be config.
it might be ./Configure
sh configure
