Into wireshark,
 Help / About wireshark / Folders,
 you can see something like:
- Personal Plugins    /home/<user>/.wireshark/plugins
- Global Plugings   /usr/lib/wireshark/plugins (or another one)
These are the directories where you can put :
- your <dissector>.so
- your <dissector>.la

If your dissector is compiled on 32 bits Linux distribution, then you can NOT use it on 64 bits. If your dissector is compiled on 64 bits Linux distribution, then you can NOT use it on 32 bits.
User Wireshark version should be more or less the same that compiling 
Wireshark version.
Version 1.2.X should work on 1.2.X.
Version 1.2.X should NOT work on 1.0.X.

Brain,

I could get the answer

   1. If wireshark is compiled on a machine ...... If we place our
dissector(.so) in */usr/local/lib/wireshark/plugins/1.0.0/.... *it works straight away
   2. If wireshark for a machine came with distribution (Fedora) ,that
      does not have the above patch.In such case keep the .so file in
      /usr/lib/wireshark/plugins/1.0.0/......


Please let me know if iam not clear




Regards
Chiru

    I am not sure I understand your question.

    When I go out in the field... I carry my usb stick with me. On the
    stick
    I will have my .so file and .dll file (for windows and linux). As long
    as that machine has wireshark installed on it...I drop my file in
    place,
    start wireshark and see
    my dissector working.

    That machine now has wireshark and my dissector in place... there
    is no
    need to install wireshark again.

    Not sure if this helps...if needed...can you collaborate some more..??

    Thanks,
    Brian
