Current name is wireshark-1.x.x-1.i686.rpm. I want to rename the Linux binary package as wireshark-1.x.x-MySoftware-Version.i686.rpm, while -Version is -1, -2, etc. Config.nmake was changed:


But it did not work. The name was not changed.

Any other file I should change to put local build information in the binary package?

Thank you.

some questions.

  • what is your Linux distribution
  • what is your Wireshark version
  • how did you build/create the RPM

You will have to amend the Release field in the Wireshark.spec file from which you build the RPM.

Thanks a lot. I know I need to change some wireshark.spec files. Can you let me know which file?
