End of file on pipe magic during open


Hi, I am currently doing some work on gns3 using virtual routers loaded on virtualbox on linux. I get an error message that says "end of file on pipe magic during open" whenever i try to start wireshark. Any help please? Thanks in advance.

Best Regards.

Did you do a search on "End of file on pipe magic during open"? Lots of interesting hits.

You say you start Wireshark, but don't say how. So, how do you start Wireshark?
