with some remarks:
made sure user is member of wireshark group.
$ wireshark -n wiresharktest
file not found
I can run wireshark, but there is no way I can save its results in a file without extension in its name.
Consulted help and submitted:
$ wireshark -n -i wlp9s0 -w wiresharktest
that gave me the file to proceed
$ tshark -nr wiresharktest
dumped the whole file on stdout
$ editcap -r wiresharktest wiresharktest50 1-50
made the smaller file OK
$ mergecap -v -w wiresharkmerged wiresharktest wiresharktest50
mergecap: wiresharktest is type Wireshark/... - pcapng.
mergecap: wiresharktest50 is type Wireshark/... - pcapng.
mergecap: selected frame_type Ethernet (ether)
mergecap: ready to merge records
$ randpkt -b 500 -t dns wireshark_dns.pcap
created the file OK
$ wireshark wireshark_dns.pcap
displayed the file OK
$ dftest ip
bash: dftest: opdracht niet gevonden (command not found)
I just skipped that one. (urpmf does not find such file in /usr/bin)
$ capinfos wiresharktest50
File name: wiresharktest50
File type: Wireshark/... - pcapng
File encapsulation: Ethernet
File timestamp precision: nanoseconds (9)
Packet size limit: file hdr: (not set)
and more .....
To me it is OK, but if the missing dftest is a real issue, then plse remove the OK.
I would like someone else to confirm that the wiki needs some update on its first command.
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
