One Answer:


According to their FTP server, it's wireshark-1.0.15-5.el5.src.rpm

If you need a newer Wireshark version, you can build it yourself.

Or upgrade to RHEL6. However, the latest Wireshark there is only 1.2.15.

So, if you need a current release of Wireshark and you don't have to run it on RHEL5, I suggest, you just capture the data on RHEL with tcpdump (options -w and -s0) and then use another machine (Windows, Ubuntu, MacOS, etc.) to analyze the capture file with the latest available Wireshark release.
