With wireshark-1.4.0-2.fc14.x86_64, Wireshark stops capturing packets shortly after I start a simple capture ("port 80" on eth0) and starts printing messages like this repeatedly in the window from which I started it:
13:02:26 Warn Error "File contains a record that's not valid" while reading: "/tmp/wiresharkXXXX14jNPE"
I tried rebuilding the RPM with wireshark 1.4.1 and the problem persists.
Recompiling with --without-zlib fixes it. Searching for the phrase "File contains a record that's not valid" on the Internet yields more information about this problem.
wireshark-1.4.1-2.fc15 with disabled zlib is landing into rawhide soon, I'll update F14 in few days (I'd like to see proper fix though).
wireshark-1.4.1-2.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.
I give up, I haven't found any solution other than disabling zlib :(.
