I've been using the following script to run dumpcap as a daemon on Ubuntu machine and it was working great. link:tsharkd

I am trying to do the same on a Fedora Core 13 machine but the script doesn't work. Can anybody provide a working script or advise on how to change the original one, so it runs on Fedora?

gteissier, Already tried what you suggested and it errors out on /sbin/start-stop-daemon (I guess that's not used in Fedora)

Replace the second line of the script you linked by set -v -x, and running the script again will give you details about what is going on.

That said, your question is not related to Wireshark, but rather to Fedora Core & Ubuntu differences.
