    So here is where I am at:

    tar zxvf libpcap-1.4.0.tar.gz <---- runs

    ./configure <---- does not run


    This is what is returned:
    root@android:/root/libpcap-1.4.0 # ./configure
    ./configure
    Bad mode
    rm failed for -f, No such file or directory
    rm failed for -f, No such file or directory
    rm failed for -f, No such file or directory
    rm failed for -f, No such file or directory
    ls: Unknown option '-i'. Aborting.
    configure: error: Working directory cannot be determined
    1|root@android:/root/libpcap-1.4.0 #

    "Bad mode" is coming from chmod not using octals but +x, I can change that. What is causing the working directory to not be determined? Do I not have dependencies installed? If I run "ls -l configure", it is present and has execute privileges for my user. Any ideas?

    Which carrier are you with, or better still what's the model number of your device? As is typical with Samsung, there are several versions with differing firmware and/or kernels. :(
