[suse-security] NMap

Sorry if this isnt exactly a security issue, but it is being used to 
test security.. so does that count? :-]

Running SuSe 9... trying to run nmap, i get this error unless i use
options '-P0 -sT'

Starting nmap 3.30 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2004-01-23

pcap_open_live: socket: Address family not supported by protocol

There are several possible reasons for this, depending on your 
operating system:

LINUX: If you are getting Socket type not supported, try modprobe 
af_packet or recompile your kernel with SOCK_PACKET enabled.

*BSD:  If you are getting device not configured, you need to 
recompile your kernel with Berkeley Packet Filter support.  If you 
are getting No such file or directory, try creating the device (eg 
cd /dev; MAKEDEV <device>; or use mknod).

SOLARIS:  If you are trying to scan localhost and getting '/dev/lo0: 
No such file or directory', complain to Sun.  I don't think Solaris 
can support advanced localhost scans.  You can probably use "-P0 -sT 
localhost" though.

Thank You,
