Problem installing wireshark with yum


I'm trying to install wireshark or FC5 using yum. I'm simply using:

Quote:
yum install wireshark
It finds the right package and dependancies, downloads them, and then says install. However, when I try to run the program, just using:

Quote:
wireshark
I get a command not found. I've tried restarting. Any suggestions?

See if you can run it by entering:

/usr/sbin/wireshark

yes i totaly agree ; the wireshark package ONLY install the CLI core wireshark tool called tshark found in /usr/sbin ; /usr/sbin/tshark will launch that tool ; you will have to dig a little in the man pages for tshark to get things going your way but if you want to use the gnome front-end then you must install it first
