Wireshark and no interfaces

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I installed both 'wireshark' and wireshark-gnome'. I added myself to the 'wireshark' group. When I launch wireshark, I get the error "Couldn't run /usr/sbin/dumpcap in child process. Permission denied". I looked at the permissions on dumpcap, and it has an unknown group on it (in addition to lacking +r and +x for others): Code: $ ls -l /usr/sbin/dumpcap -rwxr-x---. 1 root wireshark 83632 Dec 10 12:24 /usr/sbin/dumpcap What is the correct way to fix this? Add myself to 83632? Change the group to 'wireshark'? Or allow other read and execute (I don't believe its this one)? (HowTos)
