Hello –

I want to know if it is possible to relocate a wirshark installation to a different path ( and perhaps different machine ) after doing a “make install”.


Basically I want to do this


Un-tar wireshark source

Run ./configure –prefix=/home/joeuser/wireshark


make install


cd /home/joeuser

tar –cvf wrs.tar ./wireshark


copy tar file ( wrs.tar)  to another system and install it at say /home/bobuser/wireshark


On the first system, I am not allowed to have root so I cannot install under /usr/local  but I must build on this system since it has all the tools, libraries, etc

Needed by wireshark to build.


But I need to run wireshark on the second system.  This system however doesn’t have the tools, etc, to build wireshark.


I am using wireshark 1.0.0 and Linux ( Fedora Core ).
