Description bc979 2019-04-28 21:52:22 UTC
11.2 contains man pages for pcap-filter and pcap-linktype in man7.  Those are missing in 10.2-RELEASE.  The other pcap man pages in man3 are present.  The man page for pcap-filter contains the only description of the filters used by tcpdump.

Should have included that master was running 11.2 before and then it was upgraded to 12.0-RELEASE using freebsd-update.  Master does not contain /usr/src, but sermons does if that makes any difference.

This is a duplicate of https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=237893 - or rather it is a duplicate of this one but the other one has a patch now.
