Everytime I try to compile WireShark, or download the file from any of the repositories, it fails. I have tried every version I can fine on the ANONSVN site and each one only downloads 180KB, and fails when I try to open it. Is there another location I can get this file?

Works fine for me using To obtain further help you'll need to actually post details of the failure, e.g. copy and paste from your command prompt.

SUCCESS!!! Finally found a version that would compile.

It also works for me using your original path. I suspect something in your route to the package server has a (broken) cached copy somewhere.
