Similarly configure script is also giving few errors , i suspect those to be caused by above autogen errors.Please help.

  1. What is your system (lsb_release -a)?
  2. Did you install all required tools/libs (Ubuntu: apt-get build-dep wireshark)
  3. What is the output of ls -al aclocal-flags in the wireshark directory
  4. Did you expand the sources on a NFS share? If so, local root might not have enough access rights! In that case, please try again from a local file system.

[[email protected] ~]# lsb_release -a LSB Version: :core-3.1-ia32:core-3.1-noarch:graphics-3.1-ia32:graphics-3.1-noarch Distributor ID: Fedora Description: Fedora release 9 (Sulphur) Release: 9 Codename: Sulphur

I intend to write plugin for wireshark so i took development release source from itself and I didn't do any expansion

there are no exec rights for aclocal-flags and tries to execute that file (./aclocal-flags). Where did you get the source from and how did you expand it?

Can you please try this:

svn checkout wireshark

and then run ./ again.

If svn is not available on your system, install it:

yum install subversion

If you get different errors, your Fedora system (V9) might be to old to build the current version (GTK dev libs, etc.).
