Thanks Brain

But if they have the wireshark  which came with distribution ,is there a way to plugin this dissector into that that they need not install wireshark again.

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.
