Hi All,

the current version 1.8.15 and the developer version 1.12.0rc3 don't recognize the interface when you install it on Yosemite OS X 10.10 Beta 1.

I have try with XQuartz 2.7.6 and Wireshark 1.8.15 and XQuartz 2.7.7_rc1 with Wireshark 1.12.0rc3 no effect.

Please help me to fix this issue

All the Best

I'm having the same problem. You can work around it by running wireshark via the terminal and using sudo. so you'd do

sudo wireshark
permanent link

Don't run Wireshark as root. There are millions of lines of code in Wireshark that may be susceptible to the very network traffic you're capturing. In the mean-time does the released version of 1.12 work any better?

No change on 1.12 ... Still cannot get any interfaces. also when doing ls -l /dev/bpf* it shows those owned root group wheel ...

ls -l /dev/bpf* crw-rw---- 1 root wheel 23, 0 Aug 20 10:13 /dev/bpf0 crw-rw---- 1 root wheel 23, 1 Aug 19 08:04 /dev/bpf1 crw-rw---- 1 root wheel 23, 2 Aug 20 09:30 /dev/bpf2 crw-rw---- 1 root wheel 23, 3 Aug 20 08:17 /dev/bpf3 crw------- 1 root wheel 23, 4 Aug 20 08:17 /dev/bpf4

chmodBPF appears to be installed though.

sudo launchctl list | egrep ChmodBPF Password: - 0 org.wireshark.ChmodBPF
