== Packet List Vertical Scrollbar ==

The vertical scrollbar of the packet list sometimes doesn't show up or is otherwise strange, due to a probable bug in the GTK+ toolkit. Simply resizing the Packet List (by moving the seperator bar) usually solves this problem.

Known Bugs

The following is a list of known and confirmed bugs.

/!\ Please don't add new bugs here, ask the developer/user mailing lists or use our [http://bugs.ethereal.com/bugzilla/ bugzilla] for this purpose.

For several reasons, a Wiki isn't a good way to handle bugs, e.g. how to ask questions to a new bug if no mail address was left.

New bugs added to this page will be deleted without further notice!

Not a Bug

Things our users frequently notify as bugs, but which are intended behaviour.

  1. The horizontal scrollbar in the packet list pane wasn't removed. It does automatically appear if the content doesn't fit into the window. If you widen your columns to be larger than the pane, a scrollbar will appear. You can also use View/Resize All Columns for this.
  2. Plugins are not portable between versions. Ever wondered why Ethereal keeps its plugins in a directory named after its version? That is because the plugin interface is considered an internal interface to Ethereal. Therefore it is not stable (as API and ABI) and can change with every version. So when moving from one version to the next you get a fresh install of plugins for this version. When using a 3rd party plugin, request a fresh build from the supplier.
  3. The Ethereal Windows version (as well as some other windows software) won't work well with desktop theme software, e.g. making the windows desktop look like Mac OS X. Known problems are with Alienware's Windows theme (AlienMorph(TM)?) not showing the packet list well.

Running Out Of Memory -> Terminate

Ethereal will terminate if it runs out of memory. There's currently no solution to this, for details and workarounds see the /OutOfMemory page.

Packet List Vertical Scrollbar

The vertical scrollbar of the packet list sometimes doesn't show up or is otherwise strange, due to a probable bug in the GTK+ toolkit. Simply resizing the Packet List (by moving the seperator bar) usually solves this problem.

Sniffer Time Stamps

Time stamps in capture files from the Windows version of Sniffer are not always interpreted correctly.

If you have a problem with time stamps in Sniffer files, try it with the latest Ethereal release. If you still have a problem with it, please add a new [http://bugs.ethereal.com/bugzilla/ bugzilla] bug and give us a copy of a capture file with the problem, and a listing of what the time stamps on the packets should be, if possible.
