Re: Error while installing wireshark 1.10.3

Hello,

Thanks for the help.

After replacing the Wireshark.spec.in file from 1.8.6 to 1.10.3, my system was able to locate Wireshark. Actually in 
1.10.3, Wireshark.spec.in does not keep the wireshark exe by default at /usr/bin, instead it installs them to the path 
given by --prefix which was given at the time of ./configure. I don't know why this time /usr/bin has been removed.

By the way what is Wireshark.desktop, what role does it play?

This was a topic brought up by Tomas Kukosa some years ago:

The only objection I saw was Jeff Morriss's

I think the point of RPM packaging is that everything is self-contained in:

1) the source tarball
2) (and) the RPM spec file

so what you're asking actually goes against how RPM is intended to be used.

but, even at the time Tomas asked that, it appears we were generating wireshark.spec from wireshark.spec.in, so I'm not 
sure why setting more things in the generated wireshark.spec than we were already setting would be a Bad Thing.
