Ship copy of wtap.h so libwiretap is useful for development
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
Description of problem:
third-party packages that use 'configure' to find Ethereal's libwiretap can't
use it without a copy of wtap.h
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The 'kismet' package (http://www.kismetwireless.net) can use the wiretap
library from Ethereal, but its 'configure' script can't find "wtap.h".
Steps to Reproduce:
Not clear if a wtap.h should go in the ethereal RPM, or if a separate
ethereal-devel RPM should carry it.
I don't think this is planned. The headers and libs should be included
in devel part of package but we don't ship ehtereal with -devel,
mainly because the ethereal libs changes way too often.
