Description Gert Doering 2019-08-02 13:31:51 UTC
I got told in #228051 to open a new PR, so I do. When installing net/tshark-lite and trying to dump with it, I get the message tshark: Couldn't run /usr/local/bin/dumpcap in child process: No such file or directory because dumpcap is no longer installed. Which brings up the question "what is the intended difference between tshark and tshark-lite"? The pkg-descr just says "lite", but doesn't mention "unsuitable for life capturing"... Anyway, what I think should happen is that either dumpcap is brought back, or the package description is clarified on what "lite" stands for... save people time.

This should be fixed now.
