Wireshark download/Slackware14.1 x 32 bits


Hello All,

I downloaded wireshark 1.12.2 from the SlackBuilds.org site. I am unable to run the executable
wireshark.SlackBuild to install it. The file has the right permissions (-rwxr-xr-x). I tried
using the ./wireshark.Slackbuild command but it did not work. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Regards,

Jeff

Hi,
what do you mean by "not able to run"? What happens? Do you get an error message?

Hi millgates,

The "wireshark.SlackBuild is a executable file (-rwxr-xr-x). When I enter this on the command line I get the
following error message:
bash: wireshark.SlackBuild: command not found.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Regards,

Jeff

Hi,

You are running as 'root'? You are in the working directory for the wireshark.slackbuild?

Hi onebuck,

I am running as root. Created a directory "wireshark". After I untared the downloaded file it created the directory "wireshark". This is the path I am in at this time. Doing a ls -al on this directory gave me the "wireshark.SlackBuild executable. I am unable to run this file. I looked at the README file but gave no instructions on running the executable.

Thanks for the info but I did not find how to run it staying in the path that I am in: wireshark/wireshark/.
I have tried several things but unable to run the file. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Regards,

Jeff

Are you sure you spell it correctly? Do you use the bash completion feature?

Here, there is an upper-case B:

Try prepending by ./
Also, use tab completion to get the spelling right. Type ./wire
And press tab. If it does not auto-complete, something is wrong.
