wireshark broken ABI in 7.2 when compiled on 7.1
Last modified: 2016-05-31 21:33:22 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to newest version of wireshark
A possible fix would be to have a new "major" version of libwiretap.so.
