The steps essentially involved in the evaluation of transport coefficients in linear response theoryusing Kubo formulas are to relate the defining retarded correlation function to the correspondingtime-ordered one and to evaluate the latter in the conventional perturbation expansion. Here weevaluate the viscosities of a pion gas carrying out both the steps in the real-time formulation. Wealso obtain the viscous coefficients by solving the relativistic transport equation in the Chapman-Enskog approximation to leading order. An in-medium cross-section is used in which spectralmodifications are introduced in the propagator of the exchanged .
