"cannot stat `libpcap.so.1.0.0':" error during make of Libpcap 1.0.0 on Fedora 9
I am rather infrequent user of Linux, so please bear with me.
I am trying to install Libpcap version 1.0.0 on Fedora 9. During 'make, i get the following error:
"/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `libpcap.so.1.0.0': No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1"
What could be the problem?
Also, bear in mind that Fedora 9 is pretty old. The latest is 12, and 13 will be out soon.
.. Or may be you got yourself a corrupt libpcap-1.0.0 source ?
This one is OK on Fedora 9 :
Using e.g. /home/<username>/tmp/ :
tar xvf libpcap-1.0.0.tar.gz
./configure --help ( to know the options )
Still not working
Thanks for your replies.. but the problem still exists.
I log in as root, and the Libpcap source is not corrupt as the same source was used for other machines and it worked fine.
Well, the best solution, may be this :
1) Log in as an unprivileged user ....
Root is for administrative tasks only,
and please use su instead of 'log in as root'.
Compiling : only the 'make install' command requires su.
2) .... Start from scratch in a new directory :
We know, this one is OK in Fedora 9 ..
It's a small package, please download it.
A lot of other libpcap versions are marked 1.0.0,
but may not work on all Linux ?
