Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] compiling static tshark binaries with wireshark 1.2.1 on solar
Hi,

I tried (unsuccessfully) to compile static binaries out of wireshark 1.2.1. Idee was to get a static binary of tshark to have a simply sniffer tool.

What I did:

./configure --prefix=/opt/wireshark --disable-glibtest --disable-plugins --enable-static --disable-shared --enable-tshark --disable-wireshark --disable-gtktest --disable-glibtest --disable-editcap --disable-capinfos --disable-mergecap --disable-text2pcap --disable-idl2wrs --disable-dftest --disable-randpkt --enable-dumpcap --disable-rawshark --disable-ipv6


What I got:

Remedy:
I did the build again (this time removed the line "--enable-static --disable-shared") and got finally a nice sun package. Nevertheless I would like to have a simply tshark binary with only a few dependencies.

Any hints to get around the nasty/blocking error with the dynamic linker stating the "-dy/-a" issue?

cheers
