kernel: tcpdump uses obsolete (PF_INET,SOCK_PACKET)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
Some/all uses of RawHide tcpdump on a current 2.2.* kernel
on a Rawhide machine (2.2.5-ac3, Rawhide 1.3.2) produce this
message in the kernel syslog. I report it in case it's of
more than cosmetic irritation (tcpdump seems to work fine).
The kernel messages do not occur using kernel-2.2.5-4 and
tcpdump-3.4-10 on a sparc64 machine. I presume that the
annoying messages were cosmetic. Thanks for the report.
