http://ubuntuforums.org – Greetings- Trying to set up wireshark to capture traffic in my home network, but I'm getting an error message. First off, I used the following code to set up wireshark so as NOT to run as root: Quote: $ sudo -s # sudo apt-get install libcap2-bin # groupadd -g wireshark # usermod -a -G wireshark myusername # chmod 750 /usr/bin/dumpcap # setcap cap_net_raw,cap_net_admin=eip /usr/bin/dumpcap The error message I get when I startup the application is: Quote: Couldn't run /usr/bin/dumpcap in child process: Permission (Hardware)
