I am relativly new to linux so I would appreciate any responses to be worded for an idiot. Thanks in advance for that.
Now, my question is about a tcpdump install I'm trying to do in fc3. It didn't go quite so well. I got libpcap installed fine but i got this at the end of running the make command while installing tcpdump.
setsignal.o tcpdump.o util.o version.o print-ip6.o print-ip6opts.o print-mobility.o print-ripng.o print-icmp6.o print-frag6.o print-rt6.o print-ospf6.o print-dhcp6.o print-smb.o smbutil.o strlcat.o strlcpy.o ./../libpcap-0.8.3/libpcap.a
tcpdump.o(.text+0x80e): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `pcap_debug'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [tcpdump] Error 1
Silly me, I tried to run make install after that. That shot this at me.
[ -d /usr/local/sbin ] || \
(mkdir -p /usr/local/sbin; chmod 755 /usr/local/sbin)
/usr/bin/install -c tcpdump /usr/local/sbin/tcpdump
/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `tcpdump': No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1
And one final question. Up until this point I have never had a problem installing from .tar files. If I simply aborted and tried to install an older version or something would I have any massive clean up that I would need to do or could I simply rm the directory that i unpacked the .tar into?
