I think I've found out what's going wrong, and it doesn't appear to be specific to RHEL3. You obviously can't run "make rpm-package" until after both the autogen.sh and configure scripts are run in order to generate the Makefile in the first place. In my case, I run configure with lots of options, including "--disable-gtk2". If you then run "make", it works fine ... compiling Wireshark w/out gtk2. However, if you then run "make rpm-package", all the sources are copied to wireshark-0.99.5/packaging/rpm/BUILD/wireshark-0.99.5/, then from what I gather, autogen.sh and configure are then re-run automatically, but, this time configure is run WITHOUT the options originally selected before. So that's why the rpm-package fails because RHEL3 does not have gtk2.4, and even though I tried to disable it, the configure options are not used. To work around that problem, I manually edited configure.in to set all the options I wanted, then re-ran autogen.sh and configure, then "make rpm-package". This successfully built an rpm without gtk2 (or any of the other packages I didn't need). Unfortunately, I ran into another problem when trying to install the rpm: =====[START]===== rpm -ivh wireshark-0.99.5-2.i386.rpm Preparing... ########################################### [100%] file /usr/lib/libwiretap.so.0.0.1 from install of wireshark-0.99.5-2 conflicts with file from package ethereal-0.99.0-EL3.2 =====[END]===== I know I can force the installation, but why should there be a conflict at all? The wiretap used with ethereal-0.99.0 is installed in /usr/lib/, but the wiretap used with Wireshark should be installing in /usr/local/lib/. The default installation is /usr/local/lib, and I've verified that in both the Wireshark and wiretap configure scripts. Any ideas on this one? And rather than having to manually edit configure.in in order to create an .rpm with your desired packages & optional components, is there a better way to do this? - Chris (I have updated bug 1509 in the bugzilla database to reflect these latest findings.) -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Maynard, Chris Sent: Saturday, March 31, 2007 1:48 PM To: Developer support list for Wireshark Subject: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Wireshark 0.99.5 "makerpm-package"problemsonRHEL3 I just noticed my post and that somewhere in transition, what I typed was not exactly what was posted. The scripts are obviously run from the current directory "./", not from the upper-level "../" directory. The buildrpm.sh script I actually run is attached. - Chris -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Maynard, Chris Sent: Friday, March 30, 2007 5:23 PM To: Developer support list for Wireshark Subject: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Wireshark 0.99.5 "make rpm-package"problemsonRHEL3 Right. I run a buildrpm.sh script that essentially encapsulates the following: .../autogen.sh .../conf.sh make clean make rpm-package The conf.sh script is attached. It disables almost everything (including gtk2), again as I'm primarily only interested in tshark for this particular rpm. I attached the output of the configuration in a prior post, but that is attached again here as well. Anyway, I still get the "undefined reference" failure, so my feeling is that this function is incorrectly being used in all cases and not taking into account whether gtk2 is actually enabled or not. But even if it is enabled, shouldn't there be a check somewhere for 2.4 or greater? Regardless, for my purposes, I'd be happy to get it working with gtk1 only, but as I said, it still fails with the same error. Regards, Chris P.S. In case the conf.sh script gets mangled in transit for some reason, here's the basic contents: ..../configure --disable-gtk2 --enable-wireshark=no --enable-tshark=yes --enable-editcap=yes --enable-dumpcap=yes --enable-capinfos=no --enable-mergecap=yes --enable-text2pcap=no --enable-idl2wrs=no --enable-dftest=no --enable-randpkt=no --enable-ipv6=no --enable-threads=no --without-ssl --without-net-snmp --without-adns --without-lua --without-portaudio --without-pcre --without-krb5 -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Stephen Fisher Sent: Friday, March 30, 2007 5:00 PM To: Developer support list for Wireshark Subject: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Wireshark 0.99.5 "make rpm-package" problemsonRHEL3 On Fri, Mar 30, 2007 at 08:23:08PM +0200, Ulf Lamping wrote: > You may try GTK 1.2 which should still work.
