I've got a lot of trouble with PacketFu (from I wanted to do was a bit of network
sniffing but everytime I want to use packetfu I get this message:

irb(main):001:0> require 'packetfu'
Errno::EBADF: Bad file descriptor
  from C:/Programme/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/packetfu/write.rb:82:in
#this happens if i call a specific file, but still the
irb(main):002:0> require 'packetfu/capture'
=> true

I got Winpcap(version 4.0.2) installed and can sniff with wireshark
without problems.

Now I'd like to know why it isn't working and how to fix it(is this
problem winXP specific, a common problem on windows ?)

if anyone has experienced similiar problem( and found a solution) please
tell me

thanks in advance
