Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] 0.99.7pre1: missing preferences for fcoe and samr

Hi,

This results from the blunt removal of preference settings from a dissector. If one follows the developer guidelines you should know that these need to be replaced with prefs_register_protocol_obsolete().
So those who checked in the changes dropping preferences, please fix 
them and add the revision numbers to the 0.99.7 pending list on the 
roadmap wiki page.
Thanx,
Jaap

Hi!

I've just tested latest pre1 and get the following warnings:

11:59:34 Warn C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\ulfl\Anwendungsdaten\Wires hark\preferences line 1143: No such preference "fcoe.ethertype" (applying your p
references once should remove this warning)
11:59:34 Warn C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\ulfl\Anwendungsdaten\Wires hark\preferences line 2014: No such preference "samr.nt_password" (applying your
 preferences once should remove this warning)

Steps to produce on Win32:
back up your personal preferences
remove intalled Wireshark (including Preferences!)
install 0.99.6a
set "Open a console window" to "Automatic" in the Preferences dialog
install 0.99.7pre1
... enjoy the warning window!


This is ugly and should be fixed before the release.
