libdumbnet provides a simplified, portable interface to several low-level networking routines, including * network address manipulation * kernel arp(4) cache and route(4) table lookup and manipulation * network firewalling (Ip filter, ipfw, ipchains, pdf, ...) * network interface lookup and manipulation * raw IP packet and Ethernet frame transmission libdumbnet is known as libdnet in other distributions, but was renamed in Debian in favour of the older DECnet library 'libdnet'. This package contains the corresponding 'dumbnet' Python module.

    2016-02-05 - Matthias Klose <> libdumbnet (1.12-7) unstable; urgency=medium * QA upload. * Multiarchify the library package. * Build using dpkg-buildflags. * Bump the lintian and debhelper level. * Build using dh-python. * Enable parallel builds.

    2015-02-05 - Bernd Zeimetz <> libdumbnet (1.12-6) unstable; urgency=medium * QA upload. * Make people who test upgrades from testing to unstable happy (Closes: #775896).

    2015-01-30 - Bernd Zeimetz <> libdumbnet (1.12-5) unstable; urgency=medium * QA upload. * Fix missing doc folder during upgrades (Closes: #775896)

    2013-07-07 - Luca Falavigna <> libdumbnet (1.12-4) unstable; urgency=low * QA upload. - Set Maintainer to Debian QA Group. * Convert to dh_python2 (Closes: #616861). * debian/rules: - Pass --add-missing parameter to automake call (Closes: #713367).

    2011-07-01 - Luk Claes <> libdumbnet (1.12-3.1) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload. * Don't ship .la files.

    2009-08-23 - Jan Christoph Nordholz <> libdumbnet (1.12-3) unstable; urgency=low * Restore lost symlink in the -dev package. Closes: #542972. * Provide dumbnet-config again, provide the old name 'dnet-config' as a symlink, and make it print the correct -l parameter (i.e. include it into the changed files of the 01rename_library patch). Closes: #543050. * Write a terse manpage for dumbnet-config. * Bump Standards Version to 3.8.3. * Add a README.source file.

    2009-07-29 - Jan Christoph Nordholz <> libdumbnet (1.12-2) unstable; urgency=low * kfreebsd has <stropts.h>, too, so the ./configure check to decide between tun-solaris and tun-bsd is bogus. For the time being patch ./ to drop that test and choose tun-bsd right away.

    2009-07-25 - Jan Christoph Nordholz <> libdumbnet (1.12-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream version. * Update upstream location in all Debian files, but do not overwrite the upstream README - add a note to README.Debian instead. * Add a symbols file. * Bump Standards Version to 3.8.2.

    2009-03-28 - Jan Christoph Nordholz <> libdumbnet (1.11-1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low * Adopt the package. Closes: #474128. * New upstream version. * Completely rework the packaging. Use dpatch for patch management. * Thoroughly revise debian/copyright. * Accomplish the Debian-specific library renaming by modifying the .am files and rerunning the whole auto-toolchain. This is the cleanest way to do this and produces the smallest distro diff. -> New dpatch (script): * Activate the python module build (closes: #388541): * Configure --with-python. * Patch the .pyx code to avoid using the reserved keyword 'type' as a mundane identifier. -> New dpatch: 02python_type_is_reserved * Patch the python Makefile to build against all current python versions. -> New dpatch: 03build_all_python_versions * Use debhelper v7. * Standards Version is now 3.8.1.

    2009-01-23 - Barry deFreese <> libdumbnet (1.8-2) unstable; urgency=low * QA upload. + Set maintainer to Debian QA Group <>. * Move {Source-Version} to {binary:Version}. * Change pwd to CURDIR in rules. * Add {shlibs:Depends} to dev package. * Add watch file. * Remove redundant section: libs from binary package. * Bump debhelper build-dep and compat to 5. * Bump Standards Version to 3.8.0.
