Subject:LibUSB vesion problem?
Date:14:59:14 15/11/2009


I've just upgraded from Mandriva 2009.1 to 2010.0.

When I try and run Kismet Spectools - which were compiled under 2009.1 - I get
the following error message:

/usr/local/bin/spectool_gtk: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/bin/spectool_gtk:
undefined symbol: usb_debug

If I try and compile either the release version or the latest svn fror2010.0, I get:

checking usb.h usability... yes
checking usb.h presence... yes
checking for usb.h... yes
checking for usb_init in -lusb... no
configure: error: *** LibUSB required. Linking -lusb failed.

LibUSB *is* installed - version libusb-1.0_0, along with its development and
static development components.

I also have the compatibility (and development components) for version 0.1_4

It looks like something has changed between versions. I can find no reference to
usb_init, but I can find references to libusb_init!

Anyone got any suggestions?
