Dsniff building Error Slackware 12.1


I know that there are a lot of similar post but none of them gives a working solution...

Someone can explain me how i can compile dsniff 2.3 on my Slackware box,
is there any package or alternative,

the ./configure script doesn't give errors these are the building error

I install all the required software:

gcc -g -O2 -D_BSD_SOURCE -D_BSD_SOURCE -D__BSD_SOURCE -D__FAVOR_BSD -DHAVE_NET_ETHERNET_H -DDSNIFF_LIBDIR=\"/usr/local/lib/\" -I.       -I./missing -c ./arpspoof.c
./arpspoof.c: In function 'arp_send':
./arpspoof.c:49: warning: passing argument 1 of 'libnet_get_hwaddr' from incompatible pointer type

The binary package you installed is on OpenBSD package.

You say it works, then you're lucky.

Otherwise, regarding your compile error, it may be due to the fact that the dsniff package requires some other libraries that are not available in the stock Slackware. Refer to:
