    Default Can't ./configure bandwitdhd , problem with libpcap

    Hi,

    i've been trying to "./configure" the bandwitdhd package.
    When i do it i get :

    configure: error: Bandwidthd requires but cannot find libpcap

    I have installed the libpcap and libpcap-devel:

    linux-1a6o:/home/alex/bandwidthd-2.0.1 # locate libpcap
    /alex/Win32/Prj/libpcap.dsp
    /alex/Win32/Prj/libpcap.dsw
    /usr/lib/libpcap.a
    /usr/lib/libpcap.so
    /usr/lib/libpcap.so.0

    rpm -q libpcap-devel

    I tried compiling it and it worked just fine on 11.2+libpcap-devel.

    Tried the same on 11.1 (to match your version numbers) and had no issues - where did you acquire these sources?

    Hi Chrysantine,

    My opensuse is 11.1 ...
    I got the packages from the regular repos.
    Long time ago , i installed a libpcap from the tcpdump site.
    How could i know if i have some kind of problem with the version ?

    i should say i am still a newbie ....
