Worked great on 10.6 and prior. Upgraded to 10.7, did not work. Uninstalled and reinstalled ver 1.6.1, same ver that was running fine before the upgrade. X11 is not opening in conjunction with Wireshark, but it did in 10.6. See log file. Searched MAC for "_iconv", no hits. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

I see this too - X11 doesn't open, so then wireshark doesn't open. If I open X11 first, WS opens, and I can look at an existing pcap - but does not capture properly on en1. I have not yet tested en0. hope this helps -

I have the same issue, but I can't even get Wireshark to start if X11 is open first....

What happens if you try to capture on en1?
