Lightbulb Is there ethereal or wireshark in Linux / Fedora 11 ?


I just trying to install an ethereal / wireshark in Linux Fedora 11. I got one tool which is named KSniffer. But is has no version of Fedora as far I searched. ( REF http://ksniffer.sourceforge.net/ and www.kde-apps.org). And finally found no network packet snoffer like ethereal/wireshark.

I beg help on this issue to you.

How hard did you look?? wireshark is in yum on your base fedora install. just run "yum install wireshark-gnome" and that's it. Generic rpm also available from wireshark.org

And ksniffer is not "a" wireshark, it is a network traffic analyzer, similar to wireshark.

I hope, you already have yum installed.

If so, try :
Code:
yum install ethereal ethereal-gnome

ethereal as a project name hasn't existed for over 2 years. it is not in FC11's yum repo.
