[Please keep this quiet until the patchkits can be included in the main
distribution to keep the noise down for the maintainers.]
I have completed a port of the latest copy of windump and pcap (the
Windows versions of tcpdump and libpcap/bpf packet filter) to gcc. You
can find the files and instructions at http://www.rootlabs.com/windump
The only things I wasn't able to port were the VXD and SYS. I didn't have
time to port the resource files for the Netmeter example so if someone can
do that, I'd appreciate it.
The original developer of Windump keeps having a problem with
windump+gcc. When he presses ^C, the statistics aren't printed. He
traced the problem and believes windump is getting killed before its
cleanup() call can finish. My copy here works fine. Here is how it
> $ c:/windows/system/windump
> c:\windows\system\windump.exe: listening on PPPMAC
> [CTRL-C pressed]
> 0 packets received by filter
> 0 packets dropped by kernel
Please test windump+gcc and let me know if you can reproduce his problem
(or find any others!). Once the code is integrated with the main
distribution, these patchkits will go away.
