    What is confusing to me is that I also get:

    $ dpkg -l | grep wireshark
    ii libwireshark-data 2.2.0+g5368c50-1 all network packet dissection library -- data files
    ii libwireshark8:i386 2.2.0+g5368c50-1 i386 network packet dissection library -- shared library
    ii wireshark 2.2.0+g5368c50-1 i386 network traffic analyzer - meta-package
    ii wireshark-common 2.2.0+g5368c50-1 i386 network traffic analyzer - common files
    ii wireshark-gtk 2.2.0+g5368c50-1 i386 network traffic analyzer - GTK+ version

    Useful information here:
    https://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSe...lation_methods

    and here:
    http://anonscm.debian.org/viewvc/col...an?view=markup

    Running:

    Code:
    sudo wireshark-gtk
    may work but with warnings that it is dangerous.

    Recomendations:
    Live DVD with Wireshark: Kali Linux
    Installed Linux with Wireshartk available: Debian
    ---
    Verifying of md5 checksum and burning a CD at slow speed are important.

    What's wrong with Knoppix?

    Well, to quote philo: " may work but with warnings that it is dangerous. "

    I thought that the OP was simply looking for a live DVD with Wireshark and made a suggestion. Wireshark is there and given the nature of Kali Linux, Wireshark is unlikely to vanish from it any time soon. When I'm working with a Live DVD I generally am looking to get something done as simply as I can and don't like to have to remember magic prayers to the Linux gods to get things started. I also don't like warnings, at least one reason for that is that I don't think that I know Linux well enough to determine if I can safely ignore the warnings.

    Alternately, if the OP is trying to work with an installed system, then I recommend a pure system built from one distro, not the Knoppix approach of hacking different systems together.

    running wireshark . . .

    _USR=$(whoami)
    echo "// __ \$_USR: ${_USR}"


    sudo chgrp "${_USR}" /usr/bin/dumpcap
    sudo setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin+eip /usr/bin/dumpcap


    _LOG=$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S)"_wireshark-gtk.log"


    wireshark-gtk -i eth0 -w "${_LOG}" 2>&1
