Thanks for your replies

Regarding Richard's suggestion -

I am using gcc 4.8.5-11.

yum upgrade did not work, seems I have latest by my available yum repos.

I am having exact same issue when working against git master repo.

Regarding Maynard's suggestion -

Thanks, found ./autogen.sh on the downloaded tar.gz source code (not in git repo), and that procedure got me going.​

As a last step, is there an official method/script to include relevant files in /bin /sbin /lib /lib64 etc so that #wrieshark will point to this newly built version ?

I’m not sure if the instructions at https://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsdg_html/#_building_on_unix work with the stable releases or not.  Well, I have yet to attempt to build Wireshark using cmake.  I can say that autotools works on RHEL7 (7.2 at least), and so I’d recommend trying that.


Basic steps:



./configure [options]

I am trying to install latest stable release on my RH.

according to err log - 

/bin/c++    -fexcess-precision=fast  -DCXX__Wcomma_VALID -fPIE   -fexcess-precision=fast -Wcomma -o CMakeFiles/cmTryCompileExec4287660239.dir/src.cxx.o -c /tmp/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeTmp/src.cxx

c++: error: unrecognized command line option '-Wcomma'

gmake[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/cmTryCompileExec4287660239.dir/src.cxx.o] Error 1

gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeTmp'

gmake: *** [cmTryCompileExec4287660239/fast] Error 2

I do not see specific c++ requirements in dev guide lib reference.
