Possible problems and how to solve

Your wireshark is not working properly and prints out messages like following even when run as root:

capset(): Operation not permitted

This is due libcap and wireshark now needs capability kernel module to be loaded.


Include it in your MODULES array in rc.conf so it will be automatically loaded in next boot:

MODULES=(... capability)

And load it now with modprobe:

modprobe capability
