Re: wireshark crash with segmentation fault

/usr/lib64/libwireshark.so.2: undefined symbol: py_create_dissector_handle

Are you trying to run Wireshark from a build directory or after installing? Are you installing to /usr/ or someplace else like /usr/local ?

The basic problem, I think, is that your Wireshark is compiled expecting the Python-scripting support to be enabled but your libwireshark (or at least the one in /usr/lib64) doesn't have it. (FWIW the Python-scripting stuff is pretty broken so not enabling it is a wise thing.)

            I come accross a problem in which some time wireshark crash
            and i can
            see "segmentation fault" on console.

            i have created dissector in which i guess problem with tree
            struct and
            ett variables, i think i have not properly define.

            I read that *The expansion of this node is controlled by the

            for example i click on packet frame which have long tree and
            than i move
            directly to packet frame which has smaller tree. so i guess
            remember that last time i have open 5th element of tree but
            this time
            packet frame do not have 5 element so it crash.

        What's the backtrace when it crashes?  It seems quite unlikely
        that this element expansion issue is the real cause.
