Comment 2 Robert-André Mauchin 🐧 2020-03-27 16:26:41 UTC
 - Use install -p to keep timestamps:

install -pm 755

 - Package is not installable:

DEBUG  Error: 
DEBUG   Problem: package patator-0.8-1.fc33.noarch requires python3-impacket, but none of the providers can be installed
DEBUG    - conflicting requests
DEBUG    - nothing provides pcapy needed by python3-impacket-0.9.20-3.fc32.noarch
DEBUG  (try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

There's a python3-pcapy bit no pcapy alone:

As a maintainer of python3-impacket, you could fix the package maybe?

need a sponsor, you may want to post some informal reviews. Read more at
