Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Help, I still can't build Wireshark under Windows XP

Hi,

The building problem have been finally solved.

At first, I downloaded another version, r24760, which is shown "all green" in BuildBot. But when I built it, the same problem happened. I suspected there must be something wrong with my OS. Then I checked the mail list, a former mail described a similar problem

http://www.mail-archive.com/[email protected]/msg08162.html
 
In Guy Harris' reply,the character difference between English version Windows and Chinese Version Windows may cause the problem.

I realize, I'm using English version Windows, but for using Chinese Softwares, I changed the language for non-unicode programs to Chinese.

After I changed the language back to English, the building problem gone. I successfully built Wireshark source code.

Thanks for all the help.

Cheers

John

In just the last few weeks, I have successfully gotten up and running with a Wireshark development environment on Windows XP. Listed below are some of the caveats I encountered. I think I'm just a few days away from finishing some (not yet fuzzed) DLL plugin dissectors.

 

This is what worked for me; YMMV.

Hello Graham Bloice:

 

Actually, perl is not running correctly from the cmd.exe, even though verify_tools shows the correct perl path. From the Cygwin bash command prompt, these perl programs run fine:

[email protected] ~

$ cd /cygdrive/c/wireshark

 

[email protected] /cygdrive/c/wireshark

$ perl make-version.pl

Version configuration file version.conf not found.  Using defaults.

This is a build from SVN (or a SVN snapshot).

SVN version tag will be computed.

svnversion.h has been updated.

$ perl perlnoutf.pl make-authors-short.pl < AUTHORS > AUTHORS-SHORT

 

[email protected] /cygdrive/c/wireshark

$ perl --version

 

This is perl, v5.8.8 built for cygwin-thread-multi-64int

(with 8 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)

However, from nmake, these errors are issued:

        rm -f svnversion.h

        perl make-version.pl

So, I am able to build wireshark in the short term using these steps:

  1. Make distclean.
  2. Run the perl programs in a Cygwin terminal:

[email protected] /cygdrive/c/wireshark

$ perl make-version.pl               

Version configuration file version.conf not found.  Using defaults.

This is a build from SVN (or a SVN snapshot).

$ perl perlnoutf.pl make-authors-format.pl < AUTHORS-SHORT > AUTHORS-SHORT-FORMAT

 

[email protected] /cygdrive/c/wireshark

$

  1. Make all.

It isn't right, but it works enough for me, for now.

Hello Graham Bloice:

 

I experienced this problem today, and when I ran the suggested command, the output indicated Perl was trying to run an svn command. I did not have Subversion installed in Cygwin; it's in the Devel/subversion portion of the Cygwin tree. This package should be added to the list at 2.2.2. Install Cygwin

 In http://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsdg_html/#ChSetupMSVC .

Hi,

 

We would like to help, but the line that spawns the fatal error isn't in your log. This is further up the list. Maybe you should attach the complete log and a log of verify_tools.

 

Thanx,

Jaap
