Thanks a lot Chris for your inputs. As far as sudo is concerned, I was initially getting a permission denied message. Using chmod to change the permissions worked. Also, I just figured out that autogen didn't work because I had originally downloaded the code in windows and then used the same for linux. Using dos2unix worked for me. ________________________________ From: "Maynard, Chris" <Christopher.Maynard@GTECH.COM> To: Developer support list for Wireshark <wireshark-dev@wireshark.org> Sent: Thu, July 29, 2010 7:37:42 PM Subject: Re: [Wireshark-dev] building wireshark in linux Which version of Wireshark are you compiling against? With 1.2.8, my plugins get copied automatically. I haven’t integrated them with the trunk yet. Anyway, I think you probably just need to edit plugins/Makefile.nmake, possibly as easy as adding your plugin to the PLUGIN_LIST, which the latest README.pluginsmentions, or if you’re using an older version such as 1.2.8 like I am, then adding the appropriate xcopy command to the install-pluginstarget. As for the autogen.shproblem, first, why sudo? If still experiencing problems without using sudo, then you might try adding “set –x” to the top of the script after the comment block for additional debug information, which might help isolate the problem. The versions of the tools should be OK. According to the trunk’s autogen.sh, autoconfmust be >= 2.60, automake>= 1.9 and libtool>= 1.4. - Chris From:wireshark-dev-bounces@wireshark.org [mailto:wireshark-dev-bounces@wireshark.org] On Behalf Of ajay seshadri Sent: Thursday, July 29, 2010 7:28 AM To: Developer support list for Wireshark Subject: Re: [Wireshark-dev] building wireshark in linux Thanks a lot Chris. Since I am building it as a plugin, I actually paste the dll in the ..wireshark\wireshark-gtk2\plugins\my_protocol folder to make it work. It doesn't show the added protocol otherwise. I get this message : sudo: ./autogen.sh: command not found for ./autogen.sh. I have installed autoconf2.66, automake-1.9 and libtool-2.2. Am I missing out on the installation of any files? ________________________________ From:"Maynard, Chris" <Christopher.Maynard@GTECH.COM> To: Developer support list for Wireshark <wireshark-dev@wireshark.org> Sent: Tue, July 27, 2010 6:59:55 PM Subject: Re: [Wireshark-dev] building wireshark in linux 1. export WIRESHARK_RUN_FROM_BUILD_DIRECTORY=1 2. “./configure --prefix=${HOME}/build/root”: That’s an example of what you type on the command-line during the configure step. As far as I know, everything in the README.pluginsis accurate and applicable. BTW, on Windows, you don’t have to copy any plugin .dll’s anywhere. Just run wireshark.exefrom the wireshark-gtk2\directory. - Chris From:wireshark-dev-bounces@wireshark.org [mailto:wireshark-dev-bounces@wireshark.org] On Behalf Of ajay seshadri Sent: Tuesday, July 27, 2010 3:03 AM To: Developer support list for Wireshark Subject: Re: [Wireshark-dev] building wireshark in linux Hi Chris, Thanks a lot for the reply. I went through the description for unix files in doc/README.plugins. They ask us to: 1. set an environment variable : WIRESHARK_RUN_FROM_BUILD_DIRECTORY=1 (can you please tell me where this change has to be made?) 2. set up a working root using - ./configure --prefix=${HOME}/build/root (again not sure where this change has to be made) and build wireshark to install there using 'make install' Can you please tell me if the steps for making changes to the existing Wireshark files and adding the make files to the dissector plugin directory remain the same? Also, if I am not mistaken, setting up the working root will automatically read the appropriate plugins from their respective paths, we don't have to copy paste the *.so files anywhere like we do it for *.dll in windows? I could build it successfully in windows. I am relatively new to linux and hence had some doubts regarding the same. I would appreciate any help in this regard.

The developer's manual gives in depth information about the changes to be made to the various files (including *.nmake) to compile it in windows. Is 'make all' sufficient in linux? Would it generate a *.so file? I would appreciate it if anyone could guide me in this regard.
