No interfaces listed in Ubuntu 12.10
#1
pretty sure i got all the right packages although i couldn't find an openssl-devel package. Do have libssl-dev installed though. Pulsing seems to work fine. Ran the setcap command on whatpulse binary as well. It just doesn't list any interfaces

Got libpcap0.8 installed, maybe i need a diff version?

cdamour@damour:/bin$ getcap ./whatpulse
./whatpulse = cap_net_admin,cap_net_raw+eip

anyone got it working in quantal?

You got root permissions to listen/list interface when starting WhatPulse? Can you run an ifconfig and get decent output as that same user you are trying to run WhatPulse with?

I installed these packages for networking: libpcap0.8 libpcap0.8-dev

And ran sudo setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin=eip ./whatpulse

Do the network stats work if you run WP as root?

I'm having the same issue as well on a fresh Ubuntu 12.10 installation.
Running WP as root didn't make any difference at all.
Running it manually via the terminal doesn't return any errors that could lead to the network stats issue.

I'm not sure why it isn't seeing your interface, but I'm running 12.10 as well and it's working, so there is hope.
Maybe it's a problem with libpcap? I think I would try removing it and purging it's config files, then re-installing:
Code:
sudo apt-get remove libpcap0.8 --purge
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libpcap0.8

Could you check whether these files exists?

/sys/class/net/eth0/device/vendor
/sys/class/net/eth0/device/device

hi,

I checked it with the notebook that had problems with the LAN but simultaneously not with the WLAN card and *drumroll* only the "vendor" file exists, not the "device"-file.
Earlier today I checked my work notebook where LAN works, on that one both files exist.

Hope that helps...
