Description Joe Wright 2015-12-08 11:10:10 EST
Description of problem:

When changing from RHEL 7.1 to 7.2, in /usr/include/wireshark/wiretap/wtap.h there is an additional member of wtap_pkthdr: 
  "int pkt_tsprec; /* WTAP_TSPREC_ value for this packet */"

(Also there is a new member in wtapng_if_descr_s).

This appears to be due to:

This breaks the ABI -- when compiling an application with RHEL 7.1, it will crash on RHEL 7.2.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to newest version of wireshark

Actual results:

Additional info:

A possible fix would be to have a new "major" version of libwiretap.so.
