Hi guys, I was wondering if someone can help me understand what is going on.
I have a macbook running tiger 10.5.8 and am using gcc v4.0.1. Right now I am trying to do some programming with raw sockets but when I compile it says some of the header files are not available ie.

 "netpacket/packet.h : No such file or directory"
I dont' know what to do as I've updated my xcode just an hour a go to see if that might have been the problem but it isn't. SO i was wondering if someone had any recommendations.

Right now I am trying to get gcc4.4.3 downloaded via "sudo port install gcc 423" any help would be great. thanks

I won't pretent to the know the answer, but I did notice that searching Google shows that you are the first to ask about packet.h. It looks like OS X doesn't have that particular .h file, so it is likely a platform specific thing. Perhaps you want the socket.h file?

Apple seems to have a lot of possibilities. Perhaps some of the Apple docs will lead you to the right answer for your project; "Introduction to CFNetwork Programming Guide", "Setting Up Socket Streams", "OpenPlay and NetSprocket".

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
