Perl Net::Pcap install hang at loop test

I have tracked down a problem in my perl script to the module Net::Pcap I believe and the loop mod.

So using perl -MPCAN -e shell I tried to install Net:Pcap to see what happens.

After the make, it runs a check and produces the following out put:

t/01-modules OK
t/02-lookup OK
t/03-openlive OK
t/04-loop .....

That is where it hangs idefinitly ... has any one seen this before ?

How do I trouble shoot or resolve this issue ?

I am running slackware 10.1 with kernel 2.4.26 ?

Oh ... wonderful ....

So I am looking through the .cpan/build/Net-Pcap.../ and under there is a t/ directory. Which holds all the test that are run and a README file. The readme file stats that the loop test wait for 10 packets to be received on the network, if there is no network traffic the test will block.

It would be nice if the test printed this to screen .... so you know why it seems to be hanging.
