Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Where do I get gmodule.h for dissectordevelopment

I think I am following the manual.
I used SVN to get the 00.99.4 sources but these do not contain gmodule.h

Have you any idea where gmodule.h is normally?
There have been other posts about people having difficulty compiling
dissectors because this file is missing, but I have not seen how they
resolved their problem.

Please consult the Wireshark Developer Manual for all steps needed to
setup your (plugin) development environment. You can find it in the
documentation and developer section of the Wireshark website.

Currently there is no way to setup a plugin development environment
This is due to that fact that the plugin API isn't stable yet, hence all
plugins must be build and used within the same context as the version of
Wireshark you intend to use.
