    Default Failed to compile BPF-filter, pyrit

    After exhausting any other means of solving this one, I'm finally breaking down and posting here.

    Running pyrit analyze on a cap file nets me an error message of "Failed to compile BPF-filter. This may be due to a bug in Pyrit or because your version of libpcap is too old. Falling back to unfiltered processing..."

    Following the advice here : Issue 131 - pyrit - UserWarning: Failed to compile BPF-filter. This may be due to a bug in Pyrit or because your version of libpcap is too old. - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I was able to determine that my problem is the same, that I don't have a recent enough version of libpcap. SO, I have gotten that taken care of, but "locate libpcap" still is showing the verison 0.8, and I cannot get pyrit to recognize the new version of libpcap on the machine, even after recompiling pyrit from the svn.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I'm working on this, this is the reason I have not yet updated pyrit in the repo.
