Hi Andy
Do you mean others are not to be compiled or compiled but disabled?
If the former, you have to patch the dissectors list (which file depends on your build subsystem, cmake or autotools) to disable the unwanted ones. If the latter, you can't AFAIK. If 2 dissectors clash, they can't be loaded. Even if you disable them. You'd get an error like

Err  Duplicate protocol name "FOO"! This might be caused by an inappropriate plugin or a development error.

Then: change the name or don't compile the "others".

I am adding our own dissectors to Wireshark and building an installer from source. All the custom stuff

makes this quite easy, which is great.


What I want to know is, is there a way to specify which dissectors are enabled by default?

One of our dissectors is CORBA GIOP based and it clashes with other similar ones. So I’d

like to turn those off by default in our installer.


Thanks for any help
