Help - Error while installing Wireshark
Hello, i need your help

I'm trying to install Wireshark but I have this message :

"configure: error: Header file pcap.h not found; if you installed libpcap
from source, did you also do "make install-incl", and if you installed a
binary package of libpcap, is there also a developer's package of libpcap,
and did you also install that package?"

i tried to use #yum -y install wireshark but didn't work

Which distro? I ask because you have an Ubuntu icon in your profile, but you are trying to use 'yum'.

Have you tried this?


sudo apt-get install wireshark
Or does that give you a similar error?
