netdude dependency hell

Ok, I've been trying to get netdude installed forever so that I can do some voip traffic simulations and it never works because it needs I have a newer version and it evidently doesn't even see it because i get dependency errors when i try to install. Is there some way to tell it to use the newer library or at least get rid of the newer library and intall the old one? I've tried installing the old one and it won't let me because the version i have is newer.

Have you tried installing it from source over installing it from binaries?

You could make a link for the name you want to the one you got.

ln -s

x being the version you currently have.

In order to get this working I had to create the link in /usr/lib using the following command. "ln -s" I did this as root and without the quotes. I then installed both of the netdude dependencies from rpm. (libpcapnav and libnetdude) Now to actually install netdude I had to install the rpm using the following command. "rpm -ivh --nodeps netdude-0.4.6-1.i386.rpm" Again, I did not use the quotes. I only use netdude to edit ethereal captures and I have yet to run into any problems doing it this way. It is important to create the link though because without it netdude won't even open. It may also be important to note that I had to create all of my own desktop shortcuts because the rpm didn't. I really hope this helps! Usually I'm the one asking the questions. Rarely do I get to give something back. Let me know how things turn out.
