I do the build as the instruction page https://allseenalliance.org/developer... . Error occured with the output:

alljoyn_core/router/posix/daemon-main.cc:66:28: fatal error: sys/capability.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
scons: *** [build/linux/x86_64/debug/obj/alljoyn_core/router/posix/daemon-main.o] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

Where can i get the requried header file? Thx

jone, i follow your instrucitons and it succeeded. Thank you! The error output in your instruction page is different from that i came across, so it is confused for me that one same method(i.e.sudo apt-get install libcap-dev)worked for two different errors. Can you tell me why?

compilation order may have changed, it's hard to tell.
