Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Problems building on Mac
Date: Tue, 14 Feb 2012 12:14:05 +0000

I am trying to build Wireshark on a Mac running OS X 10.6.8 and I'm having 

I started by downloading the source for wireshark 1.6.5 and used mac ports 
to install
the necessary libraries.

I ran 
make distclean

All that appeared to run OK and I get an executable that I can run.

I then tried to build a package using

make osx-package

This resulted in the error


ERROR: The specified document is invalid: 
/Users/quantel/wireshark-1.6.5/packaging/macosx/Wireshark package.pmdoc

I found a bug report and patch file on the Wireshark web site that 
suggests it fixes this. So
I ran that and now I get the error

Not really being a Mac expert, I'm now stuck. So any help would be much
