etherape crashes on 11.4 while monitoring an interface on which services using the portmapper are running. It’s fine with icmp, www and smb. As soon as I issue rpcinfo -p <host> from another machine or try to mount nfs3 or nfs4 shared, etherape crashes on the server . Did you experience similar issues?
It occurs on the 2 64bit and 1 32bit machines running openSUSE 11.4. No problem at all under 11.3.
smells like a bug (?)
The bug is described on etherape’s website: EtherApe, a graphical network monitor. It affects all releases of version 0.9.10 available in 11.4 repos, including openSUSE:11.4/standard, security/openSUSE_11.4 as well as the ones in Factory.
Version 0.9.9 from 11.3 is OK, will also run fine under 11.4.
The bug has been fixed in version 0.9.12. I compiled this version in OBS (without changing anything). Packages for openSUSE 11.3/11.4, Fedora14 and Mandriva 2010.1 are available in my repo. You’re welcome to install them if you need this program.
