2.2 is no longer supported.  There is a 2.2c at SourceForge and we're asking
people to test the cvs version also.

That rpm was probably created on a RH 7.3 system... so I can't vouch for the
dependencies in the rpm being 100% accurate on any other RH version.
Remember, when you install a package, there is often a -devel version that
has the header files that must also be installed.  As it happens that's not
true for libpcap (there's no libpcap-devel that I'm aware of)...  you can
always look for the pieces via:

$ locate libpcap
$ locate pcap.h

It ought to work, as /usr/lib is a 'standard' location for ld to resolve .so
files from and the pcap.h file is where the ntop.spec file says it should be
(at least on my system).

Check your file permissions - maybe the userid you're compiling as doesn't
have access to /usr/include/pcap.h???

More to the point, why are you mixing methods?  If you install from an rpm,
you usually install the BINARY package.  If you install the SOURCE, then you
should be following the instructions in BUILD-ntop.txt.

Subject: [Ntop] libpcap error rebuilding ntop

Hi, I get the ntop-2.2-0.src.rpm package from source forge.

My machine is a Red Hat Linux release 8.0 (Psyche) Kernel 2.4.18-14 on an
i686, it's recently
instaled and have no updates.
The packages I have installed are:

And when I rebuild the ntop package shows this errors:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] NtopRedHat]# rpmbuild --rebuild ntop-2.2-0.src.rpm
Installing ntop-2.2-0.src.rpm
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.55175
+ ./buildAll.sh

Testing for libpng 1.0.14 v 1.2.4 conflict

Testing for gcc...

Anybody have an idea for what's going on?, it says "Correct
the --with-pcap-xxxxx option and
rerun", but correct how exactly?. I would be better if I download the RPM
already builded for a
machine with caracteristics like mine? And where I can get it?.
This package : ntop-2.2-0.dag.rh73.i386.rpm from Dag Wheers can work for a
RH 8.0  i686?.

Any sugestion would be apriciate. Thanks.

Hernando Tovar.

P.S. I'm not Linux user at all, this are my first steps so be patience if
this seems dumb questions
for any of you.
