Description Nils Philippsen 2001-04-05 04:45:53 UTC
As the subject says:

nils@cognac:~> rpm -ql net-tools | grep rarp
nils@cognac:~> rpm -q net-tools

On another machine (roughly RHL 7) this is:

[nils@cassis nils]$ rpm -ql net-tools|grep rarp
[nils@cassis nils]$ rpm -q net-tools

This is only the case with this latest version of net-tools, otherwise
tripwire would have complained earlier.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2001-04-05 05:12:36 UTC
IIRC, this is because rarp from net-tools doesn't work with 2.4 since the kernel
bits of rarp support were removed (it can all basically be done with userspace).
 The changelog for the net-tools package backs this up:

* Mon Apr 02 2001 Preston Brown <pbrown@redhat.com>
- don't use this version of rarp, doesn't work with our 2.4.

In fact, the userspace package is even there... take a look at the rarpd package.

Comment 2 Preston Brown 2001-04-06 19:17:35 UTC
you don't need a userland rarp tool anymore.  check out rarpd.
