Wireshark 4 compilation on Centos7

Hello, On the release note of v4 it is specified that Libgcrypt version 1.8.0 (was 1.5.0) is required. Libgcrypt 1.8 is only supported from rel8 and therefore I'm getting the expected compilation error: CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake3/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:164 (message): Could NOT find GCRYPT: Found unsuitable version "1.5.3", but required is at least "1.8.0" (found /lib64/libgcrypt.so)

Wanted to ask if there's a way to bypass it and compile Wireshark 4 in centos 7.9?

Thanks in advance.

There's a discussion here - [Wireshark-dev] CARES to old for CentOS8? - talking about versions.
You could modify CMakeLists.txt but then there will probably be more libraries that are not supported.

According to the LifeCycle page on the Wiki, 3.4.x was the last version to support RH EL7 so you might be out of luck.

On CentOS there is an 'alternatives' command available that allows you to install alternatives, as in 'newer version'. For the man-page see https://linux.die.net/man/8/alternatives .

The page https://www.redhat.com/sysadmin/alter... gives an example how to use it.

But getting it installed can still be hard when you run into a dependency-hell.
