I am new to wireshark development and this mailing list.
I am porting wireshark to an embedded platform. I managed to cross-compile
wireshark (tshark, mainly) and run it on the 32-bit PowerPC target. However,
the executables and shared libraries take about 80MB. Please see the file
dharani$ du -c -B 1024 `find . -type f`
*79500 total <<<<----*
I am trying to reduce the size. I would like to explore various ways like
remove support for some protocols (USB, ATM, etc) and do static build, etc.
I did see some pointers related to this but it looks like they are outdated.
So here are my questions:
- Is there an updated patch file for the latest version with which I can
remove unwanted protocols from wireshark? If so, I can use it.
- Any suggestions on how I can build a static version? Because the shared
library takes lot of space and I believe there may be many unwanted
Request any pointers/suggestions. Thanks in advance.
