Hi C. L. Martinez,

About the CentOS5.x/RHEL5.x packages, Yes, there were a few hiccups (due 
to me packaging the wrong libpcap by mistake) but the packages are stable 
now and we'll most likely be using them at the place where I work.
You can get everything (binary packages + source packages) at:
As for RHEL6, if it's shipping with 1.0.0, then it might be easy to 
upgrade to 1.1.1 but it might have other side-effects.

Hi all,

Due to the recent problems reported by several people on this list
about installing daq+snort under CentOS5.x/RHEL5.x platforms,
I want to know if the libpcap's version shipped with RHEL6 GA
(libpcap-1.0.0) exists problems to install snort under a
RHEL6 x86_64 host.

Is it possible to install or do I need to upgrade libpcap to the
latest release under RHEL6?
