Which instructions? I looked for "cmake -" in the source tree, and all documentation in docbook/ suggest a build dir next to the source dir. The only example that creates a build dir in the source tree is the Gitlab CI configuration. The general recommendation is to do an out-of-tree build (where the build directory is not equal to the source tree). This could either be in-tree (mkdir build && cd build) or in a different location (mkdir /tmp/build && cd /tmp/build). Personally I use both approaches: my main development has a source tree symlinked at /tmp/wireshark and a build directory at /tmp/wsbuild. When building from a temporary git worktree, I usually create a build directory within this tree for convenience: # Run from source directory, create a new source directory which # shares the same git repository: git worktree add /tmp/wireshark-2.4 master-2.4 cd /tmp/wireshark-2.4 # update master-2.4 branch git pull mkdir build && cd build && cmake -GNinja .. (other options here) # when done, go back to original source tree and wipe temp dir cd /tmp/wireshark rm -r /tmp/wireshark-2.4 git worktree prune -v -- Kind regards, Peter Wu https://lekensteyn.nl ___________________________________________________________________________ Sent via: Wireshark-dev mailing list <email@example.com> Archives: https://www.wireshark.org/lists/wireshark-dev Unsubscribe: https://www.wireshark.org/mailman/options/wireshark-dev mailto:wireshark-dev-requ...@wireshark.org?subject=unsubscribe
