Hi there Jean Pierre


As already suggested, if you want an up to date version of Wireshark / tshark on the Raspberry Pi, compile from source is the way to go.


It requires patience though (compilation takes several hours, during which time the RPi becomes totally unresponsive!).  And you have to set up the build environment first.


With lots of help (thanks again) from folk on this list I did manage it, about 4 months ago.  You may find some helpful tips in this

(rather long) gist that I wrote for myself. https://gist.github.com/Geoff99/fd7d1e68134cdca5742fa54821f79212


Good luck

I have compiled wireshark on raspberry pi a couple of years ago, and I fixed a couple of issues in the master. I'd suggest you to try to compile the master if

1) you are used to compile it

2) you can open bugs on bugzilla and test fixes back


According to http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/dists/wheezy/main/binary-armhf/Packages the wireshark version shipped with raspbian is 1.12. Don't install it. It's very very old and unsupported. I don't think other arm binaries are released. Then I guess your best bet is compiling, unless I overlooked something.
