Hi,

I have Linux 2.6.26.8-57.fc8 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux.

I downloaded src of wireshark 1.9.0-SVN-46516 from net and configured using ./configure --disable-gtktest --disable-wireshark --disable-warnings-as-errors.

Then i did make which went through fine.

Upon executing ./tshark from the directory, i get following error.

/export/home/atsuser/Tools/wireshark/wireshark-1.9.0-SVN-46516/.libs/lt-tshark: Symbol `prefs' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking

Can someone please help me with it ?

what is your distribution? Fedora Core 8?

I don't know specifically what's wrong.

Random thought:

eap_type_vals_ext was a very recent add to the source (defined in packet-eap.c).

Somehow, you've not rebuilt everything and are thus having problems.

Did you have a previous version in place before you downloaded the new source ?

In any case, since you are building from SVN, can you do a make maintainer-clean followed by ./autogen.sh & etc
