Yes....if you developed your dissector on your local linux machine...once you compiled it... it will create a <your dissector>.so file.

This .so file can be given to someone that is running Fedora with wireshark installed and they can then run your dissector.

All they have to do is put the .so file in the plugin directory and it will work.

Hopes this helps.
