I have a question concerning the use of libpcap-dev. I apologize if this is the wrong list, but it seemed like the closest one. I am running Debian 3.0 (woody-i386) and I have a C++ program that uses various pcap functions ? configures raw data (already captured off the wire) into libpcap format for tethereal. The problem is that every time I use g++, it will compile and assemble but it fails to link. Specifically, the errors I get are below:
Undefined reference to ?pcap_dump?
Undefined reference to ?pcap_open_dead?
Undefined reference to ?pcap_dump_open?
I am using libpcap-dev 0.6.2-2. I also have libpcap 0.6.2 installed.
I wrote the program on a RH 9.0 box and it linked and ran fine, so I know it works. I also tried to update the libpcap-dev 0.6.2-2 package but I already have the latest version (stable, anyway).
I am thinking that pcap needs to be updated, however pcap.h has all of the functions listed above.
What gives? I?m sure it?s something obvious, but I have been looking at it for too long.
