I managed to install ethereal. I added the path to gtk-config in the
config.cache file (it was missing) and it worked.

I also added default route on the name server and now it's running fine.

Thank you very much.

Multicast problem:
Do you have a default route set on this computer? Try to set a default route
for IP traffic to a computer in you LAN. Under Linux, multicast does not
until at least one interface is configured and a default route is set. (I
tried this with only the dummy device up - see the README file - and

Ethereal problem:
Try the --with-gtk-prefix and --with-gtk-exec-prefix for the configure
