Description Pekka Savola 2000-07-06 11:07:42 UTC
Tcpdump gives a warning when running it:

setsockopt(PACKET_RX_RING): Protocol not available

This isn't aesthetically pleasing ;)

Comment 1 Pekka Savola 2000-07-10 19:30:28 UTC
I tracked this to libpcap's pcap_open_live before figuring out this was
just another compile issue.

'rpm --rebuild tcpdump*.src.rpm' fixes the problem.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2000-07-12 04:08:01 UTC
This should be fixed by tcpdump-3.4-22 rebuild.

Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2000-07-27 12:08:54 UTC
This bug resurfaced in beta5 / wasn't fixed. :-(

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2000-07-27 13:47:19 UTC
tcpdump-3.4-26 works fine here: can you check that's what you have?

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2000-07-27 13:49:00 UTC
Sorry, my mistake; a rebuilt 3.4-26 works, but the binary package was still

Comment 6 Pekka Savola 2000-07-31 20:44:32 UTC
Upped the priority and severity.

IMO this isn't something we want to see in Winston final.

Comment 7 Jeff Johnson 2000-08-04 20:47:40 UTC
This smells like Yet Another Trip through the build system with final kernel
headers should
fix. Please reopen if tcpdump-3.4-27 still has a problem.

Comment 8 Pekka Savola 2000-08-10 15:09:47 UTC
This happens in RC1 too :-(

Comment 9 Jeff Johnson 2000-08-11 15:02:19 UTC
Ahh, the problem is compiling *with* 2.4 headers. Error message removed in
