Downloaded Wireshark source code and while make rpm got this error, kindly help


Hi!

I have downloaded Wireshark from "http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=255&use_mirror=jaist&filename=wireshark-0.99.8.tar.gz&43465604" link and installed it successfully.

But while making a rpm as suggested by README file, I am getting following error message. As being newbie in Linux, don't know what to do next.

"Executing(%doc): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.24420
+ umask 022
+ cd /root/wireshark-0.99.8/packaging/rpm/BUILD
+ cd wireshark-0.99.8
+ DOCDIR=/tmp/wireshark-0.99.8-root/usr/share/doc/wireshark-0.99.8
+ export DOCDIR
+ rm -rf /tmp/wireshark-0.99.8-root/usr/share/doc/wireshark-0.99.8
+ /bin/mkdir -p /tmp/wireshark-0.99.8-root/usr/share/doc/wireshark-0.99.8
+ cp -pr AUTHORS COPYING ChangeLog FAQ INSTALL NEWS README README.aix README.bsd README.hpux README.irix README.linux REAmacos README.tru64 README.vmware README.win32 /tmp/wireshark-0.99.8-root/usr/share/doc/wireshark-0.99.8
+ exit 0


RPM build errors:
File not found by glob: /tmp/wireshark-0.99.8-root/usr/man/*/*
make: *** [rpm-package] Error 1"

Tried to find on Wireshark.org's FAQ and Mailing List but could not find any solution.

Kindly help.

Regards,
PK

This will fail on systems that don't have %{prefix}/man or where %{prefix}/man is a symbolic link to %{prefix}/share/man. Here's a patch for packaging/rpm/SPECS/wireshark.spec.in.
Code:

If you care please notify the developers.

* BTW building RPMs as root account user is not a best practice.
