This is our old Q&A Site. Please post any new questions and answers at ask.wireshark.org.

My first attempt at installing Wireshark on a Solaris 10 x86 system was to download the packages from Sunfreeware.com (including all dependencies) and install them. There are some library errors with libwireshark.so.1 where a dependent library (libgnutls.so.26 ('GNU_1_4')) isn't found. I'm not finding much on that issue so I decided to try and compile Wireshark myself.

Here is the configure output..

Here is the line in the Makefile it fails on. I can provide more info, but this was getting to be a long message anyway..

dc_install_base=$(am__cd) $(distdir)/_inst && pwd | sed -e 's,^[^:\\/]:[\\/],/,'

Any thoughts or ideas??

Thanks! Bryan

sounds like a problem with Solaris 'make'. Try to use the latest available GNU make.

Thanks Kurt. Obvious answer.. I thought I'd tried that one but I guess that's what happens when you've been compiling all day and the brain is fried.

As @Kurt says, you have to use GNU make. You might want to look at the "configure" and "compile" steps in the Solaris buildbot.

I'll take a look at the Solaris buildbot as well.
