I downloaded Wireshark 1.6.2 from this website. I just compiled in Ubuntu 10.4. No errors during build, but an error on start:

[email protected]:/$ wireshark
wireshark: error while loading shared libraries: libwiretap.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

or

[email protected]:/$ sudo wireshark
wireshark: error while loading shared libraries: libwiretap.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Anything missing that I should install? Thanks.

Did you install Wireshark (as root) via "make install", or are you trying to run it right from the build directory? If you are trying to run it from the build directory, then reading section 3.6.1 of the developer's guide might help you.
