It's failing on extcap.

The command '/bin/sh -c cd wireshark && make -j8' returned a non-zero code: 2


The Dockerfile I'm using for this build is as follows:

ROM alpine:latest
MAINTAINER Adam Baxter <[email protected]>
RUN apk --update add git
RUN apk add gcc libc-dev make libtool autoconf automake python pkgconfig bison flex
RUN apk add libgcrypt-dev glib-dev libpcap-dev c-ares-dev
RUN cd wireshark && ./autogen.sh
RUN cd wireshark && ./configure --disable-wireshark --without-plugins --enable-static
RUN cd wireshark && make -j8


Any ideas? I suspect if I disable extcap it'll work which suits me, but I'd still like to know how to disable / fix the warnings-as-errors.

(I'm not subscribed, please cc me)

Thanks,
