Update Fedora2 using "yum update" problem


Hi,

I am using "yum update" to update my Fedora2 test2
everything works fine except one thing, it says like this:

Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1.91 - Development Tree
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
XXX
XXX
Resolving dependencies
.Package ethereal needs libpcap.so.0.8.1, this is not available.

then the program quits, I search in google for libpcap.so.0.8.1, no result matched

any solutions, thank you!!!!

I seem to remember having to install this file on FC1. You can download it here.

Hi,

the file you showed me is libpcap.0.8.1, not libpcap.so.0.8.1, anyway, I downloaded it and tried, it doesn't work.

Have you tried 'yum --exclude etheral* update ' ?
Whilst not an ideal long term solution it should at least allow you to run an update.

I just came across the same problem as you and my previously suggested work around isn't quite enough. For some reason I needed to do:

yum --exclude ethereal --exclude libpcap update

to get the desired effect. A quick search on the RedHat bugzilla turned up 117152 - "yum seems to ignore exclude option in yum.conf" which may be related.

do tar xzvf libpcp.tar: <--- if this doesn't work, do it without 'z'

cd into the directory just being untar and do:
./configure && make && (make install) && (make clean)

if this doesn't work. Well you might need to read the README or INSTALL. There might be specific stuffs that you need to do

libcap

HI

I downloaded the tar file from tcpdump.org

Ran the following commands :
./configure
./make
./make install

the last command copies libpcap.a to /usr/local/lib directory.

Where as etter cap wants libpcap.so.0.8.1. How do i conver this archive file into a binary file.

Please help me.

Regards

Hmm.. why do you have to convert it into binary file?
As far as i know, You don't have to.
All you have to do is to install the fedora core.
if this is what you want.
