When running the command I get an error. Any ideas what is going on here? I am running Mac OS 10.6.8 and have XCode 3.6.2 installed.

The setup script commented out Cairo. Perhaps you need it. Try running the script with those lines uncommented.

You should not need Cairo IF you have X11 installed, complete with the X11 SDK (I don't remember whether you need to separately install the X11 SDK or not). As currently builds GTK+ and its support libraries with X11, you need the X11 SDK to build the libraries.

Thanks for the hint. As far as I can tell I have X11 and X11 SDK installed.

Try updating to the latest SVN version (if you're running, you're building from SVN or from a source tarball built from SVN); if says "Please install X11 and the X11 SDK first.", you need to install X11 and, possibly, the X11 SDK.

Thanks. I checked out a clean copy of wireshark SVN, uninstalled XCode 3.2.6 and reinstalled with all options selected. I also completely removed my MacPorts install and Mono (it had a few duplicate libraries and an executable, aclocal). After running I get the following:

You are now prepared to build Wireshark. To do so do: appears to have worked as well:

Now type "./configure [options]" and "make" to compile Wireshark.

configure failes with:

checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.12.0... Package cairo was not found in the pkg-config search path.

Try setting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable to

Thanks again. We're getting closer. I got through configure after setting the env var. Now I'm getting an error when I call make -j 3 (as instructed by

I'll post the error in another comment since it won't fit in this window.

OK, so that means your question is now answered - you cleaned your machine up and set PKG_CONFIG_PATH so it picks up the system version of Cairo.

The problems you're seeing now are the result of building from top-of-tree SVN; we're in the middle of doing a whole bunch of stuff to support GTK+ 3.x, and sometimes that breaks things. Keep updating your SVN tree, and eventually you'll get something buildable.

After updating from SVN and noticing a new tcp_graph.c downloaded, I rebuilt. It compiled and successfully ran under X11. Thanks for your help.
