Howto Install CarvFS on your Ubuntu 8.10

I found a howto via forensikblog which wasn’t pretty good because it missed some details and installed CarvFS into your systems directories. You maybe want to have the carving files seperate from the rest of the system. So here comes a Howto Install CarvFS on your Ubuntu 8.10 machine:

cd /tmp/
sudo mkdir /opt/$USER/
sudo chown $USER:$USER /opt/$USER
mkdir /opt/$USER/carvfs
wget -O-  '' | tar xvzf -
cd libcarvpath*
sudo apt-get install -y libsqlite3-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev
./configure --prefix /opt/$USER/carvfs && make && make install
cd /tmp/
wget -O-  '' | tar xvzf -
cd carvfs*
sudo apt-get install -y libfuse-dev
export CFLAGS="-I/opt/$USER/carvfs/include/"
export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/$USER/carvfs/lib/"
./configure --prefix /opt/$USER/carvfs && make && make install

Happy Hacking
