Description Helmut Emmer 2002-05-20 13:51:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; Q312461)

Description of problem:
In the pacakage description of ethereal-0.9.3-3 RPM for i386
 the GUI called ethereal is described as "provided" which means, if you install 
the package you can use the programm ethereal. But the program ethereal IS NOT 
provided by this package. The only content of
this pacakage are the basics for ethereal and the TEXT BASED tethereal. The GUI 
called ethereal is not contained, but it is separately packaged called ethereal-
gnome-0.9.3-3. Unfortunately KDE 3.0 useres like me cannot take advantage of 
this package because it needs an installed g-nome windowmanager.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i ethereal-0.9.3-3
2. try to start ethereal by the command "ethereal"

Actual Results:  Redhat says:
bash: ethereal: command not found

Expected Results:  If an X-server - especially KDE - is running the ethereal 
GUI should
pop up

Additional info:

I compiled the 9.3.3 sources on my machine and it is running, but you really 
should change the package so that KDE users can also take advantage of this 
useful network sniffer AND IT'S GUI.

I've already discussed this issue on the ethereal-board:

Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2002-05-22 08:23:44 UTC
The name of the GUI package will change, but the separation will still persits
for the simple reason as many server setups will not want any GUI components
installed and therefore only want the tethereal app.

But renaming the GUI component has been discussed here on bugzilla as well and
will be done for the next version.

Read ya, Phil
