Description Katerina Novotna 2009-05-17 18:20:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Tethereal returned incorrect exit codes in this cases:
- input is invalid name of interface
- input is invalid capture filter

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
RHTS test
/usr/bin/single_package.py -S rhts.redhat.com  -e development  -u username@redhat.com  -a i386   -d RHEL5-Client-U3  -t /CoreOS/wireshark/Crasher/tethereal/exit-codes

Actual results:
exit code is 0

Expected results:
exit code 1

Additional info:
I am using tethereal in subsequent command line pipeline and the current behavior is misleading, so I can't detect tethereal failures due it.
Comment 1 Radek Vokal 2009-05-18 02:44:10 EDT
Please, retest with the latest wireshark version.
Comment 2 Katerina Novotna 2009-05-18 16:38:15 EDT
version 1.0.7, development version 1.1.3 and current cvs version has the same result.
