Try subversion from the stable (trunk) branch. Newcore is a totally different beast.

Sounds like you're using the wrong capture source too, you should be using "darwin" where the source is configured from the source= line.

Nope, OSX is BSD based which uses multi-DLT. If it's getting EN10MB it'll never work, even if you comment that out, that packets coming in are 802.3 formatted.

Try svn trunk, it's got the latest fixes for OSX, however I don't think it's ever been tested on a broadcom 11n NIC, which is the latest-gen hw in macs.
