I'm getting an error message when I reboot after having installed wireshark on my snow leopard system and followed all the installation directions including the sudo commands listed in previous question - I'm also not seeing any available capture interfaces when I start wireshark.

The error message is Insecure Startup Item Disabled "/Library/StartupItems/ChmodBPF" has not been started because it does not have the proper security settings.

I'm an admin user and believe I've followed all the instructions to a "T". I'm new to OSX so perhaps I've missed something.

After further digging in the Q&A I found another thread on the same subject that solved my issue.

Thanks to GeonJay and Guy Harris.
