I am using Debian testing with the following package versions installed:
- vde2: 2.3.2-4
- libpcap0.8:i386 1.5.3-2
Afterwards I ran the following:
vde_pcapplug --daemon eth0
Both processes returned with success.
No error message is printed.
Surprisingly only the "vde_switch" process is running. I expected both processes.
The following bug report suggested to downgrade libpcap from v1.5 to v1.4: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/38131
Thus I installed the version from wheezy (1.3.0-1). Afterwards the "vde_pcapplug" command worked as expected.
