    Default kismet

    Just installed BT3 on hdd. When I run Kismet, I pick ath0, using an Airlink card.
    It goes to load and then quits. Here is what my Kismet.conf reads. Any help will be appriciated.
    Kismet config file
    # Most of the "static" configs have been moved to here -- the command line
    # config was getting way too crowded and cryptic. We want functionality,
    # not continually reading --help!

    # Version of Kismet config
    version=2007.09.R1

    # Name of server (Purely for organizational purposes)
    servername=Kismet

    # User to setid to (should be your normal user)
    suiduser=root

    # Do we try to put networkmanager to sleep? If you use NM, this is probably
    # what you want to do, so that it will leave the interfaces alone while
    # Kismet is using them. This requires DBus support!
    networkmanagersleep=true

    # Comma-separated list of sources to enable. This is only needed if you defined
    # multiple sources and only want to enable some of them. By default, all defined
    # sources are enabled.
    # For example:
    # enablesources=prismsource,ciscosource


    # Automatically destroy VAPs on multi-vap interfaces (like madwifi-ng).
    # Madwifi-ng doesn't work in rfmon when non-rfmon VAPs are present, however
    # this is a fairly invasive change to the system so it CAN be disabled. Expect
    # things not to work in most cases if you do disable it, however.
    vapdestroy=true


    # Do we channelhop?
    channelhop=true

    # How many channels per second do we hop? (1-10)
    channelvelocity=5

    # By setting the dwell time for channel hopping we override the channelvelocity
    # setting above and dwell on each channel for the given number of seconds.
    #channeldwell=10

    # Do we split channels between cards on the same spectrum? This means if

    You need to add a source line to your /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf file.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Smile kismet

    Thanks for response, Prez
    I did the source line to read source=madwifi_g,wifi0,madwifi and saved.
    When a ran kismet again it did the same thing. Checked the conf.file and it reads the same as I posted. Is there just a way I can completely remove this
    version of kismet and install the latest version 2007-10-R1. If you can please walk me through this I would greatly appreciate it. Everything else seems to work fine, except for Kismet.

    Just download it, compile it, and go.

    download source
    /.configure
    make
    make install (or) make suidinstall
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Sounds like your editing the symbolic link kismet.conf and not the one theprez98 specified.

    every time I type /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf file I get
    bt ~ # /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf
    -bash: /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf: Permission denied

    Nano! Linux skills? Use vi! Newb.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    vi? Use something that's actually user intuitive! Old timer.
