Hi,

I've read the quick start and a bit more of the docs, but don't see a solution. I'm on OS X (10.7.5). I was able to run fine as root after a `make install` but I followed the recommendation and reinstalled with `make suidinstall`. On OS X it uses the group 'staff', and I'm pretty sure my user 'rob' is in that group.

> groups rob
staff com.apple.access_screensharing ....

> ls -l /usr/local/bin/kis*

ERROR: en1: You don't have permission to capture on that device
((no devices found) /dev/bpf0: Permission denied)

What do I need to do?

thanks,
