Hello all,

I think OSX has some issue with 2.0.1 especially when trying to sniff in monitor mode.

I do not quite understand the problem but this is my status message

unable to set data link type on interface 'en0'

Then on suggestion i started wireshark from terminal implementing the following params and to start in monitor mode.

sudo wireshark -i en1 -k -I -y EN10MB

This did not solve the issue, i think the preceding stable version is working fine(1.12.9). Will this be the case going forward. How does one overcome this problem ?

Thanks Bharat C P
