Hi Devs,
I built tshark with --disable-dumpcap configure option and it builts.
But on running tshark it Errors out: It can't fork child process dumpcap.
But I don't understant why?
Is it must to have dumpcap built along with tshark to get packet captured?
and if it can't run without dumpcap then why the configure option of disable-dumpcap?
When I built the same with dumpcap it works fine.
