I am unable to "configure Wireshark with --with-pcap=directory, ". I have my own compiled libpcap.a.

Please give some details about where i will get the configuration file. I am using ubuntu 10.10-32 bit.

Thanks in advance.

Is your libpcap.a in the directory you specified as an argument to the --with-pcap= flag to the configure script?

What does the configure script produce as output?

Does the configure script succeed or fail? If it succeeds, at what point does the build process fail?

The "configuration file" is the configure script in the top-level source directory.
