Hi I followed instructions to download and install wireshark for mac os X snow leopard. Howerver, when i click on the wireshark app in applications, it appears to show up for a brief second on the dock and disappears instantly.. I've had the X11 app open during that.. with or without it it behaves the same. Pls help!!!

Did you install the correct version for your system? Intel v. PPC; 32bit v. 64bit. If so you can try to open the Console application, then choose "All Messages". Leave this window open and try to launch WireShark again. This may reveal some debug info.
