I've just been digging into things using gdb, and I've found that in
pcap.c the packets are being dropped in handle_ether function, because
the is_ethertype_ip check is failing.

It appears that I don't have ETHERTYPE_IPV6 defined on my Linux boxes.


#define ETHERTYPE_IPV6 0x86dd

To pcap.h resolved my issue.

Thanks for your help!  (Now, to see how the presenter handles this
