bridged is a user-space alternative to the in-kernel bridge code in Linux.
Bridged doesn't use autoconf/automake yet. If you want to change paths it installs itself to you need to edit Makefile directly. To compile bridged you need flex and GNU avl library (you can download it from http://www.msu.edu/user/pfaffben/avl/) Perfom 'make' and then 'make install'.
By default, bridged looks for its configuration in /etc/bridged.conf, but you can override this by '-c' argument on command-line. Typical configuration file for making a bridge between two interfaces looks like this:
You'll need GNU avl library. For compiling from source RPM, you also need the devel RPM.
