libpcap update for pppd active-filter

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: florian
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.0-rc5
Component: base system Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


Because of this from the pppd README:

>* The code has been updated to work with version 0.8.3 of libpcap.
>  Unfortunately the libpcap maintainers removed support for the
>  "inbound" and "outbound" keywords on PPP links, meaning that if you
>  link pppd with libpcap-0.8.3, you can't use those keywords in the
>  active-filter and pass-filter expressions.  The support has been
>  reinstated in the CVS version and should be in future libpcap
>  releases.  If you need the in/outbound keywords, use a later release
>  than 0.8.3, or get the CVS version from

libpcap in WR needs an update to make it possible to use
active-filter in/outbound
