Description Jason Costomiris 2001-04-23 20:39:52 EDT
In Seawolf, aka RedHat 7.1, you are shipping libpcap 0.4, and tcpdump 
3.4.  The current shipping version of each of those are libpcap 0.6.2 and 
tcpdump 3.6.2.  The newer releases give you a lot of added functionality, 
such as support for SMB and SNMP v2/v3 formatted printing.  

Updating to libpcap 0.6.2 would also make it much easier to install snort 
on a RedHat system.  You should check the FAQ on www.snort.org, it 
actually has a question that reads, "I've got RedHat and...", which is 
answered by, "Check your version of libpcap."

If you're going to call it a duplicate of another bug, how about making the 
other bug visible?  Bugzilla says I don't have permission to view the status on 
the other bug referenced.  You can't expect follow-up when you're denying 
permission to the referenced bug.

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