There is a similar question without answer : How do I install a newer version of GTK in Ubuntu without replacing the current one?
I'm running a Fedora 10 - Gnome - Gtk 2.0.
Wireshark needs Gtk+ > 2.4 to be compilated so I choose to install Gtk+2.24.
I do not really understand the influence of the option
Can you confirm that this will only install the new libraries and my platform will not use them?
