Wiresnark requires Ruby 1.9 – you can install it from your system’s package manager or from ruby-lang.org:
wget http://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.9/ruby-1.9.3-p125.tar.gz tar xf ruby-1.9.3-p125.tar.gz cd ruby-1.9.3-p125 ./configure make make install
For the time being, Wiresnark installation is a two-step process – installation from gem and compilation of a C driver (this will be fixed in a later release).
Install from gem
gem install wiresnark
Compile C driver
cd $(dirname `gem which wiresnark`)/.. rake build_regset
Install from the
system_iip repository; the provided
konfig.py are configured to use Wiresnark.
