No in tcpdump-4.1.1

I am running slackware-current and I have tcpdump-4.1.1-i486-1.txz installed. If I remember right libpcap used to be part of tcpdump, but since recently i cannot find it in my system anymore! Tools like nmap give me the error message:

"error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Does someone have an idea why this happens? Thanks in advance.

probably you need to do a
slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new

Thanks for the hint.

I had to install the libpcap and libnl package now it works like a charm again.
