tshark (the non-gui version of wireshark) should be installed by

It's perhaps because of

| $ rpm -q --qf '%{NAME} \t%{SIZE}\n' tcpdump wireshark
| tcpdump         948021
| wireshark       31040958

| $ rpm -qR wireshark | wc -l
| 41
| $ rpm -qR tcpdump | wc -l
| 15

hmm... I'm must be missing your point because
how is the size of a package determine how
useful a packages is?

The reason tcpdump is so small is because there is nothing
there... the reason its so useless when debugging modern
day network protocols...
