Hi

 

I have installed Wireshark 1.0 into a HP UX server from the “Porting And Archive Centre for HP-UX” distribution without success.

 

When I try to run Wireshark I get the following output:

 

.-.-.-.-.-.-

mispevd1$ /usr/local/bin/wireshark

Fatal: can't open /dev/urandom: Operation not supported

ABORT instruction (core dumped)

mispevd1$

.-.-.-.-.-.-

 

 

I have verified and the prngd daemon is working correctly but it seems that the /dev/urandom socket can’t be read by Wireshark.

 

Thanks for your help.
