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.

A commit references this bug:

  Unconditionally install dumpcap.

  This is required to actually be able to capture packets with tshark.

This should be fixed now.
