Utilities for configuring the Linux Ethernet bridge

This package contains utilities for configuring the Linux Ethernet bridge in Linux. The Linux Ethernet bridge can be used for connecting multiple Ethernet devices together. The connecting is fully transparent: hosts connected to one Ethernet device see hosts connected to the other Ethernet devices directly.

You don't need this package for bridging in Linux Mint; that can be managed in the "Network Connections" dialog. If you have two NICs, just set IPv4 of the one that *isn't* connected to the Internet to "Shared to other computers" rather that "Automatic (DHCP)". This isn't transparent bridging, but Internet works. Most wifi cards refuse to work with bridge-utils package btw.
