Hi all,
What happened to wireshark?
It used to be in the repo but the last version I can find is in the 4.x repo. If this is the latest version supported how do you get it installed on 7.2?

Any help would be much appreciated.
Cheers,
Rochey

32-bit or 64-bit?

I'm working with 32-bit TinyCore at the moment but if 64-bit is working I would go with that.
I'd be happy to have either! lol!

Did you pm extension maintainer robc to request an update to the x86 version of wireshark?

He hasn't been active since March 2013.

wireshark removed from tc-7.x x86 repo

For some reason the interfaces do not display properly - perhaps because I cannot compile against gnutls (too old).

The version of wireshark in the tc-7.x x86_64 repo seems to work...

I built wireshark for 64-bit a few months ago to test but I never got around to uploading it. It seemed to work as I expected for me the time or two I tried it but I didn't try many of the features. It might take me a while to find a build script if I wrote one (usually the first time I build an extension I do it by hand) and to put together the .info file. In the mean time I learned that these extensions were required:

libcap.tcz
libpcap.tcz
openssl.tcz
gnutls.tcz
libgcrypt.tcz
gtk3.tcz
gnome-icon-theme.tcz

Do you have these in the dep file?

In fact I uploaded wireshark to the 6.x corepure64 repo a while back, but forgot to upload the info file, so it wasn't visible in either the 6.x or 7.x repos.

Anyway, I uploaded an updated version to the 7.x corepure64 yesterday with these deps:
Code: [Select]
gtk3.tcz
libpcap.tcz
libnl.tcz
gnutls.tcz
libgcrypt.tcz
lua-5.3-lib.tcz
sbc.tcz
c-ares.tcz
portaudio.tcz
libssh.tcz
libgeoip.tcz

..and things look better with adwaita-icon-theme loaded.

Thanks for this guys. I'm going to test this sometime today or tomorrow.

Do you know if it's supposed to work without sudo?
When I was trying it from a normal user the interfaces wouldn't show up. I then ran wireshark with sudo and it shows an error saying it's being run from a root account but then you can see the interfaces. I just wanted to know which way it should be run.

Thanks again.

Has wireshark been removed again from the ..../7.x/x86/tcz/ repo?
I was just about to download and test and on my tinycore device wireshark.tcz isn't there. I'm using the 32-bit version (normal TinyCore). Would this be an issue for some reason?

wireshark re-posted to 7.x x86 repo - it should display the available interfaces and capture without sudo now

Hi Juanito again - Sorry to keep being a pain regarding this :-\ I still can't seem to see wireshark.
If I use the apps browser in TinyCore it shows the URI as http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/ and wireshark doesn't show up in the list.
Also, if I browse to http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86/tcz/ I don't see wireshark either.

Could you confirm this is where you put it please? Or should I be getting it from somewhere else?

Thanks for all your help with this - it is greatly appreciated  ;D
