Does your compile server have GTK, etc.?
The RPM stuff is currently set up to assume that it does and then
generate 2 packages: one without the GUI ("wireshark") and one with the
GUI ("wireshark-gnome", I hope to soon add "wireshark-qt" as another
package). If you can compile with GTK then you could simply install the
Thanks for the follow-up, Jeff. That's exactly what I ended up doing and it
worked perfectly. I guess the thing to note here is that attempting to
create an rpm with the --enable-wireshark=no option in the spec file will fail.
If not, you'd probably have to comment out the entire "gnome" package
(all the sections matching "^%.* gnome").
I'm not sure if it would be worth making it an option to not generate
the GUI packages at all--let me know what you think.
I don't know if it's worth it - probably not. It just wasn't clear to me
that there would be 2 rpm's built now, as it's been quite awhile since I
last created Wireshark rpms. Anyway, now that I know, I actually like it
this way because someone here probably has a RHEL6 server that could support
Wireshark, so for them they can just install the gnome rpm, but that rpm can
be omitted for all the other servers ... and I don't have to do anything
different for either one.
