I'm try to compile wireshark in my computer, but an error occurred when I run make command. My system is centos7, kernel is 3.10.0-957.1.3.el7.x86_64. I download the wireshark source code version 3.0.0 from official site download url:

I have installed cmake3 by yum

Was this the first build you did, or did you already try to repeat it? Searching this issue suggests that cmake might get confused sometimes?

I have build success first time, 'cmake, make, make install' all success.but when I run 'wireshark', it could not find my net interface, I click the 'start' button its no response. I have tried run it in root, and run it in sudo, there is still no response. I think maybe something wrong when I build it. I have install some OPTIONAL package and try to repeat. That's what happened.

Are you aware that the dumpcap program needs special privileges to be able to access your network interface? This is usually done through capabilities, but I'm not sure how CentOS7 is organised in this matter. To simply see the interface that should be an issue. Try running dumpcap with option -L to see what it interfaces it sees, then try with other tools, e.g., ip link, tcpdump -D.

I find there is no dumpcap in my computer. Is that means there is an error when I first build it? Although I can run wireshark command and the UI shown, but no dumpcap installed
