adding a library (functionality) to an operating system

Hello All,

I have been using Fedora Core 4/5 for a networking application. I came
to know that it does not have the library corresponding to the SYSCTL
API, used to interface with the routing table and etc. Similar is the
situation for the library used to access data-link layer (L2) and
packet generation functionalities.

Is there any possibility of adding that library (which I believe is
available on UNIX) to the operating system? I do not want to switch to
a UNIX variant and want to stick to Linux.

Thank you,

Abid Ghufran.

That functionality has resided inside Linux for eons. Ask in
comp.unix.programmer or comp.os.linux.*

Oh, you're a multiposter. Don't do that. DO NOT post the same

There is still no mention at all of the C (or C++, although that's
off-topic here) in your question, and several mentions of Linux.

If that doesn't give you a hint as to where it should be asked, see my
reply in news:alt.comp.lang.learn.c-c++

Undoubtedly. You will need to ask in a Linux support group however.

<OT>
Did you search the yum repository for suitable libraries?
Or even search the web?
