Thanks again. I really appreciate the wisdom. I had looked at that thread before, and I got confused because I thought the package might have changed for Ubuntu. The reason for my confusion is that there is the libdumbnet-dev and also simply libdnet-dev. In libdnet-dev, the header file is also not named, "dnet.h", but instead, "dn.h". I attemped to "adapt" the steps in the other thread to the libdnet-dev package, and I failed miserably. I just ran it exactly as it says to with the libdumbnet-dev package, and the install for Net-Libdnet-0.01 went smoothly. That is one dependency down. On my first post topic, the Monastery is already proving to be invaluable.
