Updated Wireshark packages for RHEL-6 and Fedora-17 available for testing

[From an email to the gluster-devel mailinglist] 
today I have merged support for GlusterFS 3.2 and 3.3 into one Wireshark 
'dissector'. The packages with date 20120516 in the version support both
the current stable 3.2.x version, and the latest 3.3.0qa41. Older 3.3.0
versions will likely have issues due to some changes in the RPC-AUTH
protocol used. Updating to the latest qa41 release (or newer) is
recommended anyway. I do not expect that we'll add support for earlier
3.3.0 releases.

My repository with packages for RHEL-6 and Fedora-17 contains a .repo
file for yum (save it in /etc/yum.repos.d):

RPMs for other Fedora or RHEL versions can be provided on request. Let
me know if you need an other version (or architecture).

Single patches for some different Wireshark versions are available from

A full history of commits can be found here:
(Support for GlusterFS 3.3 was added by Akhila and Shree, thanks!)

Please test and report success and problems, file a issues on github:
Some functionality is still missing, but with the current status, it
should be good for most analysing already. With more issues filed, it
makes it easier to track what items are important.

Of course, you can also respond to this email and give feedback :-)

After some more cleanup of the code, this dissector will be passed on
for review and inclusion in the upstream Wireshark project. Some more
testing results is therefore much appreciated.

    The initial rounds of conversation around the planning of content for release 8 has helped the project identify one key thing – the need to stagger out features and enhancements over multiple releases. Thus, while release 8 is unlikely to be feature heavy as previous releases, it will be the...
