Good info Barry, and much appreciated, however I have tried with what I have
and it is not recognized, perhaps include a bit on the use of gpsd just in case ?
Also in my case, teh ;
does not work / show any info.Code:cat /dev/ttyUSB0
However when starting gpsd kismet returns GPS info.
Is using gpsd a real bad thing ? I seem to get that idea from your posts.

I have got kismet working today both with gpsd and without gpsd, but I am using a blue tooth Holux gpslim device not a serial device.
Stop the TSA now! Boycott the airlines.
Barry, would you be willing to put up a quick how to on upgrading to the new Kismet ?
I tried to upgrade manually, all seemed to go OK, but in reality nothing has changed ... I must have
messed up *doh*
Would like to try the latest 2011 Kismet and not have to use gpsd.
I just get the latest and greatest this way.
svn co https://www.kismetwireless.net/code/svn/trunk kismet-devel
The rest is actually in the kismet readme.
I also remove kismet from backtrack before doing the above. That way you don't accidentally run the older version, it's not in the standard location in backtrack.3. Quick start
PLEASE read the full manual, but for the impatient, here is the BARE
MINIMUM needed to get Kismet working:
* Download Kismet from http://www.kismetwireless.net/download.shtml
* Run "./configure". Pay attention to the output! If Kismet cannot
find all the headers and libraries it needs, major functionality may
be missing. Most notably, compiling Kismet yourself will require
the development packages and headers, usually called foo-dev or
* Make sure that all the functionality you need was enabled properly in
configure. Almost all users will need pcap and libnl support for

Kismet-newcore is in backtrack and its also the same Kismet in /usr/bin. Its not the latest svn check out but it works fine. I just used it this week for a wireless assessment and used both my GPS devices with it. I do however start gpsd on its own like "gpsd -n -N -D 3 /dev/ttyAMC0" or USB0 depending on the device.
