How to install wireshark on Linux (Fedora Core/Ubuntu)

This is pretty easy. Only one command does the entire work. Here are the steps.
  • Boot into yor Linux System. Log in as root.
  • Open a terminal/console. If you don't know how to open a terminal then you can press Alt+F2 and then type `gnome-terminal` there.
  • Now apply the following command in terminal.

# yum install wireshark-gnome

For ubuntu apply this

# sudo apt-get install wireshark

If it fails anyhow try this. It should work then.

# sudo aptitude update
# sudo aptitude install ethereal
