Description Daniel Berrange 2013-08-29 07:29:09 EDT
Description of problem:
The header files in wireshark-devel reference a file 'ws_symbol_export.h' eg see

$ grep -r  ws_symbol_export.h /usr/include/wireshark/
/usr/include/wireshark/register.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/daintree-sna.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/tnef.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/hcidump.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/snoop.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/dbs-etherwatch.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/cosine.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/eyesdn.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/buffer.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/i4btrace.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/dct3trace.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"
/usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/btsnoop.h:#include "ws_symbol_export.h"

This header file does not exist anywhere though

 $ find /usr/include/ | grep ws_symbol_export.h
 $  rpm -ql wireshark-devel | grep ws_symbol_export.h

These broken headers make it impossible to compile the libvirt wireshark dissector plugin

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to compile a wireshark dissector using wireshark-devel headers

Actual results:
Fail on non-existant  ws_symbol_export.h header

Expected results:

Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2013-08-29 07:46:24 EDT
Looks like ws_symbol_export.h is a new file in the version of wireshark on F19 and the RPM is not copying it to the include dir.
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2013-08-29 07:51:12 EDT
The following change to F19 wireshark.spec fixes the headers
