Description Juergen Rose 2012-07-11 13:34:11 UTC
If I start wireshark as ordinary user it complains about:

rose@moose:/home_moose/rose(6)$ wireshark 
/usr/lib64/libwireshark.so.2: undefined symbol: py_create_dissector_handle

If I start it as root I still get an additional warning:

Lua: Error during loading:
 [string "/usr/share/wireshark/init.lua"]:45: dofile has been disabled

this has been around for quite a while, I believe it is some kind of protection to disable scripting as root. more importantly, stop using wireshark as root, most of me wants to completely disallow that anyway.  the history of security vulnerabilities should speak for itself.

./configure --help:

  --with-python[=DIR]     use Python interpreter (installed in DIR, if
                          supplied) [default=no] (BROKEN/UNSTABLE)

Let's wait for upstream to fix this. Derived projects seem to want to work around this problem, too.

Ignore that.
