 Getting Wireshark

  Wireshark source code and installation packages are available from
  https://www.wireshark.org/download.html[48].

  Vendor-supplied Packages

   Most Linux and Unix vendors supply their own Wireshark packages. You
   can usually install or upgrade Wireshark using the package management
   system specific to that platform. A list of third-party packages can
   be found on the download page[49] on the Wireshark web site.

 File Locations

  Wireshark and TShark look in several different locations for
  preference files, plugins, SNMP MIBS, and RADIUS dictionaries. These
  locations vary from platform to platform. You can use About→Folders to
  find the default locations on your system.

 Known Problems

  The BER dissector might infinitely loop. Bug 1516[50].

  Capture filters aren’t applied when capturing from named pipes. Bug
  1814[51].

  Filtering tshark captures with read filters (-R) no longer works. Bug
  2234[52].

  Application crash when changing real-time option. Bug 4035[53].
