Probably the best way to fix this problem is to bypass yum and work with the rpm command directly. The first thing to do is to get rid of the remnants of the failed install:

rpm --nodeps -e wireshark

Then install wireshark from the rpm file. Something like:

rpm -i /home/user/rpms/wireshark-2.3.4.fc8.rpm

or whatever the name of the rpm file is.

See:

man rpm

Did you install the frontend?
yum install wireshark-gnome
