wellenreiterII_rc2_v4 needs libpcap.so.0 (I have three versions of libpcap IPKs)
Looking at the below descriptions of three different versions of libcap, wellenreiter needs the contents of libpcap_0.8.3 from the year 2004.
I tried running wellenreiter with libpcap 0.9.7, and it complains about missing library: libpcap.so.0
So I made a symlink of libpcap.a and named it libpcap.so.0
It complains about version information.
Since libpcap 0.9.7 is the latest upgrade in pdaxii13v2, where do I get libpcap.so.0 ?
I could uninstall the newer version and install the "0.8.3 year 2004" version, but there must be a better way to accomplish this?

There are two versions of libpcap_0.8.3
------------------------------
libpcap_0.8.3 from the year 2004 has the following:
/usr/lib/
libpcap.a
libpcap.so
libpcap.so.0
libpcap.so.0.8
------------------------------
libpcap_0.8.3 from the year 2006 has the following:
/usr/local/lib/
libpcap.a

/usr/local/include/
pcap-bpf.h
pcap-namedb.h
pcap.h
-----------------------------

The latest version from the pdaxii13v2 feed is libpcap_0.9.7
-----------------------------
This version has the following:
/usr/local/lib/
libpcap.a

/usr/local/include/
pcap-bpf.h
pcap-namedb.h
pcap.h
-----------------------------

use the old version
newer apps don't need a separate libpcap package anymore. it is only needed for development.
