Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] trouble getting packaged installs to work on OSX

MacOS X 10.4 comes with X11 on the install CD as optional install. It is not installed by default but only a doubleclick away.

Does X11 come standard with OSX 10.4+? For the hell of it, I tried installing X11 last night, but the install wouldn't complete because I have "more recent software on this computer" -- I was under the impression that X11 WASN'T included?

Is this the error: Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: ?  If so, make
sure you have Apple's X11 insalled and either start wireshark from an
X11 xterm screen or set the display variable manually.  For the
sh/bash/ksh shells do "export DISPLAY=:0.0" or for the tcsh shell do
"setenv DISPLAY :0.0"

Sorry, never used parallels myself.
