I have a MacBookPro with these specs: Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro1,2 Processor Name: Intel Core Duo Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 2 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz

What version of Wireshark do I need to install? The download page says OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) Intel 64-bit .dmg OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Intel 32-bit .dmg with the first one selected... but my processor is 32-bit

Try the Leopard build; the Leopard build is done on a machine running Leopard, but might work on Snow Leopard (assuming some annoying shared-library version number issue doesn't occur with one of the X11 shared libraries).

If your processor is 32 bits, then use the one most current for 32 bits. If it's a leopard version instead of snow leopard, use it. If it doesn't work, get rid of it.

* You have confirmed it is 32 bits, right? * Nothing on my Mac told me. I asked elsewhere. Even Intel doesn't make it clear.

Why in both windoze and mac the tools that tell you what processor you have don't tell you how many bits it is, is beyond me... especially because so many downloads require you to know this!

At work I deal with an Intel 4-core machine that's 32 bits. Go figger.

I have a MacBook: Model Name: MacBook Model Identifier: MacBook5,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 3 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz

Mine (above) is 64 bits.
