Oops, never mind about the RPM. Michael wasn't responding to my subject, and rpms aren't for Debian-based distributions. I need to go drink some more coffee.

Marius,

Thanks. Your response helped lead me to the solution.

I tried installing the packages, one-by-one, that you listed which weren't listed by my server when I ran the same command (after installing apt-show-versions). That didn't work. So, I watched the output of the installation process, and captured some of the error messages. I saw "pcap" mentioned, so I searched the Hardy list of packages, and installed libnet-pcap-perl, which also installed libpcap. That worked. I reverted the server to its previous state and tried again, and confirmed that:

sudo aptitude install libnet-pcap-perl

was all that I needed before running the fwknop installation.

Just before I sent this email I saw that Michael Rash has a newly built RPM, so I'll have to revert the server again and try that, too, and report on my results (tonight).

- Scott

Hi

i got a debian etch
here is my apt-show-versions

apt-show-versions | grep perl

fwknop 1.9.5 installs without a problem under this config

core modules fwknop is using come with the package and the install script handles them
e.g.

I am attempting to install the latest fwknop on the latest upgraded Ubuntu Server (2.6.24-18-server). I have build-essentials installed, but I don't know if fwknop requires that. Perhaps there are other libraries or Perl modules that I need to install first. During the attempted fwknop installation I get messages such as:

What are the prerequisites for fwknop installation on Ubuntu Server?

Thanks.
