    FreeBSD 5.1 - TCPDump Error

    Today I did a fresh install of FreeBSD 5.1 Release.

    When I try to do a tcpdump, I get the following error:

    /usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: tcpdump: shared object has no run-time symbol table

    Can anyone suggest how to fix this?

    The install went pretty smoothly except for the Perl-5.6.1.13 package. After the installation completed I went back into sysinstall and the package installed fine.

    I would either cvsup and do a make world ..... or you could probably go to where tcpdump is in the source tree /usr/src/usr.sbin/tcpdump and make install , personally i would cvsup to 5.2rc2 or 5current and build world . 5.X is getting better all the time 5.0 was a nightmare for me, 5.1 was good (i saw the same error you are getting a couple times but with a different binary) 5.2 has been great so far.

    Is 5 working for your bridging? , i have looked a little more at bridging and all i can guess is hardware incompatabillity? , and by the lack of response to your thread at bsdforums i would say you definetly are doing things right as someone would have corrected you by now.

    Hi Lumpy, I actually got the bridge to finally work today. I tried a few different things. I tried some different network cards, 3Com 3C9 series (specifically recommended on FreeBSD site). I also added the line "gateway_enable="YES" to my rc.conf file. Lastly, I changed the order of the lines in sysctl.conf (though I don't think that made the difference). I did this all after a clean install back to FreeBSD 4.9 Stable. I ran into a few problems with 5.1. They ended up releasing 5.2 like right after I installed 5.1. haha... Figures. I don't have the Firewall setup yet, but that is cake compared to all the trouble this bridge was giving me. IPFW seems pretty simple to add rules to.

    Anyway, I'm happy. I got it to work finally after plenty of headache. I documented everything I did as I went along, and I am going to narrow down exactly what caused the bridge to finally work. Plan on writing up a nice little trouble shooting section on all the different things I tried and problems I ran into. Then make a reference / tutorial for myself and anyone else who could use it.

    Thanks for your help!
