Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] How to build a relocatable rpm
Date: Thu, 19 Jun 2008 17:42:23 +0530

Hi all,


I wrote a test plug-in following the steps from README.plugin which got compiled. I am successfully able to build the rpm.

When I installed it normally it is working fine. But when I tried to install it different path it is installing but only the plugins which are in built are working but the one which I added.


So that I checked it with the command: rpm –qpi Wireshark-0.99.7-2.i386.rpm | grep Relocations

OUTPUT: Name        : Wireshark            Relocations: (not relocatable)


How other plugins can work when it is not re-locatable. Can any one help me in building a re-locatable rpm?
