Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Mac Build Error

I have been unable to resolve the following build errors on my Mac with 10.11. The perl code, the heavy use of macros, and lack of experience with lua was just a little too much.  

I did the ‘make maintainer-clean’, removed my build directory, re-ran ./autogen.sh, and re-ran the configure script. 


I ended up running configure with —with-lua=no to build without errors.

Try doing "make maintainer-clean", re-run ./autogen.sh, re-run the configure script, and recompile; there might be some out-of-date file there.  (It's building fine elsewhere.)

I am still receiving the error.

I was able to continue by removing the following lines in the generated register_wslua.c file
  • WSLUA_REGISTER_FUNCTION(reload_packets)
  • WSLUA_REGISTER_FUNCTION(reload_lua_plugins)

Also, wslua wasn't built on my Centos 6 box.
