The Wireshark download page currently offers a package for installation on Mac OS X 10.5 and above

However, when trying to install this package, I got the following error in the installer when selecting the volume to install on: You cannot install Wireshark 1.12.0 Intel 32 on this volume. This package requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later. If you cannot upgrade you might try installing using MacPorts or Fink.

If 10.5 is not supported then the download page should be fixed. If 10.5 is supported then the package needs to be fixed.

The previous stable package of 1.10.9 does install on 10.5.8

Regards, Andrew

This seems like a bug to me, either way. Is there somewhere this should be reported that will get more traction?

The Wireshark Bugzilla is where bugs get reported, see also the Reporting Bugs page on the Wiki.
