I'm having a problem installing TCPReplay 3.4.4 for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

I'm getting this error when I run configure

checking for libpcap... configure: error: Unable to find libpcap in /usr

I have libpcap0.8 (1.1.1) installed.


Edit: I've searched everywhere for an answers but I couldn't find a definite answer for my problem.

Based on that error, the most likely cause is that you don't have the libpcap development headers installed. Any time you compile an application which requires a library, you always need to have the headers installed as well. But default installs don't install the headers since they just take up extra disk space for most users.

I've installed libpcap-dev and I'm still having that error. Installing the dev was the first thing that I did when I saw that error. – Datacommie Mar 6 '13 at 18:36
