testing scapy installation

I have an installation of scapy on OS X (via macports) and I am trying
to determine if it was successful or not. Nothing I do on the network
seems to work completely, but on the other hand the installation
didn't seem to have run into any trouble so I want to be sure. What
test can I do to determine beyond a doubt whether this was a
successful installation? I tried pscan.py, which was taken from


bmacbook:~/python bart$ sudo python ./pscan.py
WARNING: Mac address to reach not found

WARNING: Mac address to reach not found

WARNING: more Mac address to reach not found

and it goes on like that, for and so on. It keep printing
error messages even after I ctrl-c the process, I have to close the
terminal for it to (apparently) stop.
This doesn't look that good, BUT, it does not print a warning when it
gets to the ip address of some computer on my local network (such as, so maybe something is working. So is there some test I
can do that conclusively would show scapy to be working or not working?
