Ethereal 0.9.15 installation under Redhat 8

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Ewald Jenisch, Sep 16, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    Today I tried to install ethereal 0.9.15 under RH8 using the rpms
    supplied by ethereal. However none of the rpms could be installed:

    # rpm -i ethereal-base-0.9.15-1.9.i386.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    libcrypto.so.4 is needed by ethereal-base-0.9.15-1.9
    libsnmp-0.4.2.3.so is needed by ethereal-base-0.9.15-1.9
    ucd-snmp is needed by ethereal-base-0.9.15-1.9
    # rpm -i ethereal-base-net-snmp-0.9.15-1.9.i386.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    libcrypto.so.4 is needed by ethereal-base-net-snmp-0.9.15-1.9
    # rpm -i ethereal-base-no-snmp-0.9.15-1.9.i386.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
    libcrypto.so.4 is needed by ethereal-base-no-snmp-0.9.15-1.9
    [[email protected] Ethereal-0.9.15]#

    Any ideas what could be wrong here? Obviously some libs are missing, but
    where can I get them?

    Has anybody out there sucessfully installed ethereal 0.9.15 under RH8
    from the RPMs?

    TIA for any hints

    search for the missing libs ... there will be packages available for your
    distro containing those libs ... downloads & install them

  3. Yes, you're missing the libcrypto library, which is provided by the
    openssl package. Openssl should be on your installation media; otherwise
    you can pick it up from RedHat's ftp server, rpmfind, or wherever.
    I build and installed i686 rpms for my RH7.2 system from the
    ethereal-0.9.15 source tarball:
