Install Wireshark Fedoracore

Been mucking around with Wireshark as we have an weird issue somewhere on the network 😦

So decided to try to install Wireshark on Centos, this is still a work in progress, see my post. Decided to try the trusty Fedoracore distro instead.

For your info the distro is

cat /etc/redhat-release

Fedora release 16 (Verne)

uname -a

Linux wireshark-01.domainname 3.1.0-7.fc16.i686 #1 SMP Tue Nov 1 21:00:16 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

The server was yum updated straight after the build


There are some dependancies

yum install libGeoIP*

yum install libsmi*

Open the Add remove programs in the Xwindow and type wireshark. Selcet all the packages and apply

The last thing to do is

usermod -a -G wireshark _your_username_
