Description Nils Philippsen 2001-04-05 00:45:53 EDT
As the subject says:

nils@cognac:~> rpm -ql net-tools | grep rarp
/usr/share/man/de_DE/man8/rarp.8.gz
/usr/share/man/fr_FR/man8/rarp.8.gz
/usr/share/man/pt_BR/man8/rarp.8.gz
nils@cognac:~> rpm -q net-tools
net-tools-1.57-5

On another machine (roughly RHL 7) this is:

[nils@cassis nils]$ rpm -ql net-tools|grep rarp
/sbin/rarp
/usr/share/man/de_DE/man8/rarp.8.gz
/usr/share/man/fr_FR/man8/rarp.8.gz
/usr/share/man/man8/rarp.8.gz
/usr/share/man/pt_BR/man8/rarp.8.gz
[nils@cassis nils]$ rpm -q net-tools
net-tools-1.56-2

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 01:12:36 EDT
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.

you don't need a userland rarp tool anymore.  check out rarpd.
