            I am starting to have success with my new i2c capture device.  I have a dissector that was working with an external generated file using test2pcap.  I have my new DLT number (199) for I2c/IPMB packet type.


Now, I would like to connect my new captures with the dissector.   I have added, in my i2c_open_live (called by pcap_open_live), a linktype equal to DLT_IPMB (199) to my handle.  It compiles correctly but when I ran Wireshark, I have a message “Child capture process died: Abort”.


I would like to know what are the steps to connect the capture device with a dissector.  I have search all the code and a new “WTAP_ENCAP_IPMB” based on what I see with the USB device.  I add new case for WTAP_ENCAP_IPMB where there was case for WTAP_ENCAP_USB.


Any helps or information will be greatly appreciated.
