Description Johnny Hughes 2006-08-25 07:57:29 EDT
Description of problem:  Wireshark does not run as a non root user ... also
there is no wireshark "component" to select on the RedHat bugzilla.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): wireshark-0.99.2-EL4.1

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run wireshark as a non-root user and start a capture

We found this issue in CentOS-4.4 and then verified that it also exists in RHEL-4u4.

The problem is that the /etc/pam.d/wireshark is incorrect.

The pam.d file from ethereal used for wireshark fixes the problem.
