I am trying to install Wireshark and when I run the .rpm, I get the following message. I am extremely new at Linux (see drop dead stupid), and everything I've picked up so far has been on my own. I am not sure if I need to install all of these dependencies, or if there is some sort of package somewhere. I tried searching for some of them, but I'm not really seeing exactly what it says I need.

I would really appreciate any help on this.
Hmmm, what version of Linux are you using?  And where did you get the 
Wireshark RPM?
If I had to make a wild guess (based on the fact the RPM says you're 
missing even libc!), you're trying to install a 64-bit Wireshark RPM 
(didn't know that existed!) on a 32-bit Linux.
