2. Run 'sh 020_b_wireshark' to build Wireshark and install the program to '/home/wireshark/wireshark'.
You don't have to login as 'wireshark' user. You can start Wireshark with 'sux'.
Example: sux wireshark /home/wireshark/wireshark.sh
When you don't want to enter the full 'sux' command, then save it to a script and start the script.
