My copy of wireshark seems out of date - but pkg denies it's in the package repository:

root@data:/usr/ports/net/wireshark # pkg info |grep wireshark
wireshark-3.2.4                Powerful network analyzer/capture tool

(website says 3.4.8 is current)_


root@data:/usr/ports/net/wireshark # pkg install wireshark

pkg: No packages available to install matching 'wireshark' have been found in the repositories


root@data:/usr/ports/net/wireshark # wireshark
qt.qpa.xcb: XKeyboard extension not present on the X server

Any idea what's going on please?


(I'd rebuild from the port, but it looks as though I'd end up building lots of qt-related stuff too. It's only a little machine :-( )

Thanks.

Have a look at freshports: https://www.freshports.org/net/wireshark/
Version 3.4.8 has been ported on 30 Aug 2021 15:10:15.
Seems this package has just missed the quarterly ports release.

Nope. OTOH, 11.4 ist pretty outdated. Update time, I guess.

Been there, done that. Rebuilding the world needs about 48 h on my Raspberry Pi 4 with a small USB SDD as root disk.

I see, thanks. OTOH the package isn't around, and trying to rebuild from the port is messy (seems to want to build a large chunk of qt-related stuff... hence my comment. Seems a bit of a general issue with building from ports.)

Definitely. But I want to move to a rpi as well..... from yesterday's experiments, it seems there are definite issues (at least on a 3B with 13.0) with having the system on a hard drive, same as 11.x had, iirc.

But from your comment below, the pi4 should work.

Thanks for the comments

I'll possibly start a new thread with the rpi issues. Or just buy
a pi4 :-}

If you switch from quarterly, 3.4.8 is in the pkg repo now.

I run pkg upgrade -n nightly, and manually install as appropriate. ports

So as explained in another message, the package was missing and should be present right now. OTOH, packages are built agains a quarterly stable release, which at this time is 13-R -- some difficulties will arise.
