    Thank you for this post! Found it and resolved my problem immediately after reading! Awesome! :)

  2. When i type “yum install wireshark-gnome” , it says no package found. please resolve this issue . i tried to find out on google, but failed to get any specific solution. I also downloaded .rpm files of wireshark and wireshark-gnome, but they require dependencies.

      I just installed Wireshark on my Fedora 20 box. Try running “yum install wireshark” I found on one post that you need both packages. wireshark and wireshark-gnome.
