I've been attempting to get tcpdump and nmap to work, I got libpcap 3.8.3 compiled using
./configure --with-pcap=linux --enable-ipv6. after downgrading bison to 1.75 from 1.85 to fix a broken pipe error compiling libpcap.
when I run nmap i get:
pcap_open_live: live packet capture not supported on this system.
and tcpdump only captures local traffic i generate.
any idea what i'm doing wrong? The only thing to go on i've found so far is that packet_socket may not be enabled in the kernel. I've had a hard time trying to find the source and config file for the kernel in rc5. if that is the problem and someone points me in the right direction i'd be happy to post it and the network utils for people to grab.
Thanks in advance for any help.
