I did an svn update on the code directory and now the build fails. The code built fine previously along with the plugin I've written, and I'm sure I've not made any changes to any other .c or .h files. This is what I get before build stops:

If your plugin(s) have

#ifdef HAVE_CONFIG_H

# include "config.h"

#endif

You have to change that to

#include "config.h"

It works! Thanks a lot! What will the effect of this change be? Will my plugin still be compatible will 1.8.0-1.8.2?

(06 Nov '12, 08:26) SidR

Now my plugin doesn't work on on Wireshark 1.8.3 or older. I expect I'll have to maintain separate versions then.

(06 Nov '12, 08:52) SidR

Where is your svn working copy connected to, trunk or a release branch (hint use svn info to find out) and what revision number have you updated to? Are all the changes in your working copy as expected?

If you're using the trunk, then occasional breakage does happen. Looking at the buildbot waterfall display will tell you what the last revision to successfully build was, (currently r45948). I've just locally built that version without a problem so it looks like the problem is at your end if you're at that same revision.

Have you changed anything since your last successful compile? Have you tried a make clean or make distclean?

I did a make distclean. Still the same problem. svn info gave the following:

(06 Nov '12, 06:33) SidR

Hmm...also there seems to be a "tree conflict" for configure.in. Could this be the culprit?

(06 Nov '12, 06:36) SidR

Any tree conflict should be resolved, it means that your working copy is not in sync with the repository and may not be in a buildable state, although configure.in isn't used for the Windows build.
