Hi all,
I am writing a new dissector and for that purpose, have written a new file. As suggested by Jeff, i have included the file in Makefile.commom also for compilation to be successful.
But, when trying to capture the packet i am getting this error.

*ERROR:packet.c:1982:call_dissector_only: assertion failed: (handle != NULL)*
*Aborted*

Any idea what might have gone wrong ??? Its a new MPLS-TP dissector for Lock Instruct messages (as per RFC 6435) and i have followed the format Francesco has followed for PSC dissection.
Sounds like you're calling call_dissector() with a NULL handle.
