mga7, x86_64

Added user to wireshark group and installed all the packages from release.
Tested wireshark by capturing a pcap file for the ethernet interface.

Updated wireshark - 10 packages and ran the test procedure.
$ wireshark -n testing.pcapng

That brought up the wireshark interface which showed a series of TCP ACKs and a few Standard query-responses and http transactions.  Selected a GET, which displayed the packet in twinhex and ASCII.  Recognized the references to the site just viewed, the EU exoplanet catalogue.  Protocol information is listed in a separate panel.

That all looks fine.

Captured a few more packets and examined the capture file.
$ wireshark -n wiresharktest.pcap

All looks normal.

$ tshark -nr wiresharktest.pcap

Could not find dftest.
$ locate dftest

Is this a regression?

$ capinfos wiresharktest50
File name:           wiresharktest50
File type:           Wireshark/... - pcapng
File encapsulation:  Ethernet
File timestamp precision:  microseconds (6)
Packet size limit:   file hdr: (not set)
Number of packets:   50
Number of interfaces in file: 1
Interface #0 info:
                     Encapsulation = Ethernet (1 - ether)
                     Capture length = 262144
                     Time precision = microseconds (6)
                     Time ticks per second = 1000000
                     Number of stat entries = 0
                     Number of packets = 50

It all looks good except for the missing /bin/dftest.

Comment 3 Len Lawrence 2020-07-03 00:41:35 CEST
dftest.c is available at https://github.com/boundary/wireshark/blob/master/dftest.c
Comment 4 David Walser 2020-07-03 00:45:13 CEST
It's not a regression.  We last had dftest in Mageia 6.  Looking at the build log, it looks like it builds it but doesn't install it.  Bug with the new cmake-based build system.
Comment 5 Len Lawrence 2020-07-03 00:49:27 CEST
I could try compiling it locally if wireshark.pc covers all the bases.
Comment 6 Len Lawrence 2020-07-03 10:21:28 CEST
Nope.  This is packager country.
Comment 7 Len Lawrence 2020-07-03 10:34:44 CEST
So, given that dtest has been pushed in the past without dtest and that current tests look OK for the rest of it, let's set OK on this one.
