Re: [Wireshark-dev] building my dissector on linux

This is exactly what I did.

I got the 1.4 sources and compiled it on linux and started wireshark.
Everything worked fine.

On the same machine (about 1 year ago)...I got version 1.1.2 compiled
and working on my machine with my dissector. (not sure exactly what I
did to get it working)

So all I did was grab my dissectors directory only....and dropped it in
the plugin folder of 1.4.0.

When I do a make install....I get this error:

make: *** No rule to make target `../../aclocal-fallback/libgnutls.m4',
needed by `Makefile.in'. Stop.

It does not load my dissector (even with my dissector in the plugins
director) when I start wireshark.

Thanks for your help.
