I had a problem.
I'm trying to install a application that needs libpcap 0.8.1. I'm running RH9.0 that has libpcap 0.7 installed.
I downloaded, compiled and "make install" libpcap0.8.1 sucessfully into /usr/local/lib. However when I run ./configure of the application, it still tells me that it is using libpcap 0.7.
I copied /usr/local/lib/libpcap.a to /usr/local/lib, still the same result.
1) How do I clear up this? the RPM installed version 0.7 but I compiled and install 0.8.1, when is it not reflected?
2) Do I need to uninstall the RPM version before "make install" the old version?
3) If I "upgarde" a rpm package and fail due to dependencies of other packages, what should I do?
