Ethereal on Mandriva 2006 Community

Posted 08-04-2006 at 10:34 AM by taupist

<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Well, I downloaded and installed Ethereal from the mirror and guess what? It wouldn't capture packets. Several error windows kept opening up on top of each other.
<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Finally I hit on the idea that the first error might be causing all the others. It was saying that it couldn't
<br />find '/usr/sbin/dumpcap'. When I looked, I found '/usr/bin/dumpcap', so I created a soft link;
<br />
<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ln -s /usr/bin/dumpcap /usr/sbin/
<br />
<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I don't know if it is the right way to fix it (might be clumsy), but it seems to work fine now. Ethereal is
<br />happily humming away.
