First all, thank you for great work of Devil-Linux, It works very well on our compay as firewall for many years. (Start from DL 1.2 )
Last week I build my own custom DL 1.6.x from lfssystem64 and found some package issues as as described below:-
[Issue]: does not install on final CD iso
I just replace it with libpcap-1.1.1 from http://www.tcpdump.org/release/libpcap-1.1.1.tar.gz
then it appear in the final build CD iso. (It works, but I don't know why :-) )
libpcap-1.0.0 has a well known bug, it does not support peudo (any) interface , that is main reason I have to replace it.
[Issue]: 2.3.2 configure does not support --with-ifconfig-path=/sbin/ifconfig --with-iproute-path=/sbin/ip --with-route-path=/sbin/route
it still work in the final build, But it is better to use environment variables as configure suggest
IFCONFIG full path to ipconfig utility
ROUTE full path to route utility
IPROUTE full path to ip utility
I update to openvpn-2.3.4 and patch with a obfuscated patch to allow vpn pass out of china.
This obfuscated patch I tested it and it works fine on DL, just inform to somebody may interest to use it.
[Package]: bandwidthd 2.0.1 ( form http://bandwidthd.sourceforge.net/)
[Issue]: I failed on writing custom build script. so ...ha ha.
I manually "make" it on lffsystem64 environment. than copy binary file "bandwidthd" to cdtree/usr/sbin directory before use "make iso" command.
(Wish you can add it to official package. I have wait it for many years)
Custom build DL work very well now, thanks again.
