wireshark (software.hp.com) and libpcre.so

Hey;

 

Just downloaded wireshark/libpcap from software.hp.com.  Both installed w/o issue.  When I go to run it, I'm getting:

 

wireshark
/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library '/usr/local/lib/hpux32/libpcre.so'.
Killed

 

i scanned the whole system - sure enough, no libpcre.so anywhere on the box.  Am I missing a package or is software.hp.com borked?

 

One other thing: does anyone know of an nmap depot other than the one on the UK porting center (the one with 8 gazillion dependencies?)

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Re: wireshark (software.hp.com) and libpcre.so

Have a look at the following thread:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Networking/Wireshark-error/td-p/.UMpCaoNX01I

 

It appears that you may not have all of the necessary dependencies installed.

Re: wireshark (software.hp.com) and libpcre.so

Hey;

 

Thanks for the reply.  When I hit that link, I'm getting an error stating "An invalid set of parameters has been specified in the url."  Does it say what the dependencies for the ixpress wireshark are?  I thought that was one of the bigger benefits of software.hp.com; not having to download all the separate packages as we do if we use the porting centers.

 

I just looked through the install doc for iexpress.  It doesnt' mention any dependencies.  There is a "system requirements" link, but that, too, is invalid.  

 

Thanks.

 

Doug

Re: wireshark (software.hp.com) and libpcre.so

If you download from the HP Software porting and archive centre it will list all the dependencies.

 

Try this link:

Doug,

 

>>  I thought that was one of the bigger benefits of software.hp.com; not having to download all the separate packages as we do if we use the porting centers.

 

I thought that as well, although it appears to not be the case for Wireshark for some reason - I note the following in the file /opt/iexpress/wireshark/README.hp

 

Note:Before installing Wireshark depot make sure that below mentioned dependent products are already installed on your machine , either you can compile them by yourself or you
can get the compiled version from  http://hpux.connect.org.uk/

Without these dependent products wireshark will not work properly on Itanium machine, so please install them before installing wireshark depot on IA[For PA RISC no need to inst
all dependent depots].

Dependent Products and The site to download Compiled Version OF Them:

  gtk+       (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/)
  glib       (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/)
  libiconv   (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/)
  gettext    (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/)
  flex       (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/)
  libpcap    (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/ or Internet Express)
  pcre       (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/)
  zlib       (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/ or Internet Express)
  GNU adns
  # For IPF 11.23 only
  X11R6incs  (http://hpux.connect.org.uk/)

 Maybe worth emailing the Internet Express team at hpux.iexpress@hp.com to ask them why this is the case for Wireshark? Maybe just too many dependencies?

Hey;

 

Outstanding.  Thanks for pointing that out.  As I mentioned, I ran through the all the web pages looking for something like that.  Should have known that there'd be a readme with the installed bits.

 

Any rate, tcpdump works so, if push comes to shove, I'll just record the data using tcpdump, then scp the pcap files to a linux box where apt or yum *will* install all the prereqs along with wireshark :)

 

Thanks again.  I appreciate it.

Have you looked at depothelper? That will pick up all the required dependencies as well if you install Wireshark from hpux.connect.org.uk :

Hey;

 

I did not know about depothelper.  That'll make my life *significantly* easier.  thank you very much!

Re: wireshark (software.hp.com) and libpcre.so

Hey;

 

Unintentionally hijacking my own thread, but I tried this:

 

# depothelper -a ia64 -o 11.31 -c /ignite/temp -n nmap-4.76
================================================================
Package-version Comment Download Install
================================================================
ia64-11.31 Package list FAILED Not installed
================================================================
ERROR: Can't get list of ia64-11.31 packages from hpux.connect.org.uk - aborted

 

The system does have a direct/non-proxied connection.  I was able to use wget to get the depothelper depot directly from hpux.connect.org.uk.  

 

From my reading of the man page, this looks right.  Am I doing something wrong or is there something amiss with the UK porting center?

 

Thanks.

Hey

 

never mind; Found the ftp command in the depothelper script and ran it manually... they do have ftp proxied.  

 

Thanks.
