Description R P Herrold 2001-04-09 21:32:57 EDT
From testers list today:

Date: Mon, 9 Apr 2001 17:10:32 -0400
From: Gene C. <czar@acm.org>
To: testers-list@redhat.com
Subject: [testers] updating ethereal, tcpdump, and libpcap packages


2.  Both tcpdump and libpcap are more than a bit out of date with respect
to that available from the maintainer.  (buzilla 35384).  BTW, at least for
tcpdump, this was RFE'ed during the 7.0 cycle (bugzilla 13931) and is still
not updated.


I ask so that dsniff (http://www.monkey.org/~dugsong/dsniff/) which is now
at v. 2.3 may be included -- This drags libnet and libnids in ... which
should be in Powertools too (Packetfactory is down at the moment).  It is a
intermediate net security tool which I currently hand compile, but which
should be in RPM/SRPM form.  Linbids/Libnet are already SPEC file [rpm -ta
xxx] wrapped (although in old non-compressed MAN page format).

There is also a problem with the headers not exposing the proper db.1
header option.

tcpdump-3.6.2-3 in rawhide, as soon, as it gets synced
