    Default Wireshark 1.2.x

    Any chance Wireshark gets updated to a newer version that can capture and display USB traffic? I know I could probably install it from source, but that eliminates support from repos.
    I have the card in me head, but you have the memory problems?

    i'm pretty sure its there if you have all of the software sources enabled.
    If you scroll down below the backtrack sources im pretty sure its under the networking tab, slap me if its not.

    Not a slap but how to actually find out.
    apt-get update
    apt-cache show wireshark

    you'll know you did something wrong if apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade is broken http://media-2.cacetech.com/wireshar...-1.2.6.tar.bz2

    my apt-get isn't broken like I thought it might be. I just received an update to set so apt-get works, but wireshark 1.2 isn't available yet.

    apt-cache show wireshark says wireshark 1.0.3 is installed.

    Since there was no definitive request for wireshark 1.2.6 stable (January 27, 2010) I will ask for it to please be added to the repos.

    I have 1.3.2 development installed with the following options:

    Version 1.3.2

    Copyright 1998-2009 Gerald Combs <gerald@wireshark.org> and contributors.
    This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO
    warranty; not even for MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

    Compiled with GTK+ 2.14.4, with GLib 2.18.2, with libpcap 0.9.8, with libz
    1.2.3.3, with POSIX capabilities (Linux), with libpcre 7.6, with SMI 0.4.7, with
    c-ares 1.5.2, with Lua 5.1, with Python, with GnuTLS 2.4.1, with Gcrypt
    1.4.1, with MIT Kerberos, with GeoIP, with PortAudio V19-devel (built Mar 12
    2008), without AirPcap, with new_packet_list.

    Running on Linux 2.6.30.9, with libpcap version 0.9.8, GnuTLS 2.4.1, Gcrypt
    1.4.1.

    Built using gcc 4.3.2.

    And was going to write a tut on how to get this monstrosity of 1.3.2 built (not a simple task) but decided against it as it's still a dev. version (I personally can't get voip capture to work properly, that may be my error though)/compiling tools yourself will void your warranty and if you are willing to use it, you'll know how to get it all installed by yourself.

    <note>
    do NOT try this at home.
    playing with source-code is not official supported!
    </note>

    I myself also needed this tool for a demonstration of the DECT-phone-protocol analysis.

    Just downloaded the Source of v1.2.9 and compiled it with the following options
    The Wireshark package has been configured with the following options.

    I am not too sure which features work since i didnt to experiments with it.
    Would be really cool if it would be added.

    Your right but in a way so is s3m73x because he was stating the version that comes with a vanilla version of BT4 final.
    Since he mentioned making a another vmware image for testing today in irc.

    As a side note:
    Please be aware that if anyone is to compile there own packages that are not maintained in the repo's you are on your own for support for it and BT.
    Thanks.
