You need the package here:


I don't know what distro you are using, but you should be able to search
your apt-get/yum/whatever repositories for it.  Or you can use cpan,
which should be installed.  Try on the command line 'cpan install
Net::Pcap'.  That should get you hooked up, unless you are missing
something else that it finds after that.

P.S. Google is your friend.
