I've run into a puzzling issue here, perhaps someone can explain it
I'm simply trying to build "all", but I get an unresolved external
symbol in libwireshark.dll : ett_nds
I've tracked down the definition of this symbol in
packet-ncp.c.save, which is NOT part of the build.
packet-ncp.c is empty. This seemed strange, since I just checked
out a clean copy of the repository
head from SVN - I'd have expected it to build correctly right out of
After going in circles for some time, including deleting and
re-checking out the source code,
I discovered the following snippet in epan/dissectors/Makefile.nmake:
@echo Making packet-ncp2222.c
$(PYTHON) "../../tools/ncp2222.py" -o packet-ncp2222.c
@echo Faking packet-ncp2222.c...
@echo Python is required to build the NCP disector
@echo Hiding packet-ncp.c...
mv packet-ncp.c packet-ncp.c.save
touch packet-ncp.c [email protected]
So it's happening because I haven't defined PYTHON. I can fix that
(missed a step in setting up the new PC I guess),
but shouldn't wireshark build correctly either way? Otherwise why
have the ifdef at all? You could just have nmake fail
if python isn't defined.
I'm asking these questions in order to make sure defining PYTHON
really is the issue, and not something
else that will crop up another way once I fix this particular thing.
Thanks for any input,
