How to compile Tshark to make GeoIP work

Hi

If I install tshark via package I can use GeoIP without any issue.

When I compile tshark this does not work.

I know that the mmdv files are correct, I have also used the mmdbresolve tool to verify.

The following output shows the configuration of tshark;

[email protected]:~$ tshark -G folders Temp: /tmp Personal configuration: /home/graham/.config/wireshark Global configuration: /usr/local/share/wireshark System: /etc Program: /usr/local/bin Personal Plugins: /home/graham/.local/lib/wireshark/plugins/2.6 Global Plugins: /usr/local/lib/wireshark/plugins/2.6 Extcap path: /usr/local/lib/wireshark/extcap MaxMind database path: /usr/share/GeoIP MaxMind database path: /var/lib/GeoIP [email protected]:~$ tshark -v TShark (Wireshark) 2.6.16 (v2.6.16)
