    Hi
    When i tried to run imsniff got this message:
    "imsniff: error while loading shared libraries: libpcap.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
    The libpcap0.8 is intalled on my Debian box, and those libs are in /usr/lib/
    Where imsniff is looking for them?
    Thank you all

    • Look at ld.so.conf and make sure that path is there.

      If it still fails, try strace'ing imsniff to find out what's going on.

      sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libpcap.so.0.8 /usr/lib/libpcap.so.0
