Subject:FATAL: Could not write SSID track file
Date:01:41:37 13/12/2005

I have downloaded, configured and installed the newest version of Kismet, but I am having some minor problems. As far as I can tell, the kismet.conf file has been edited correctly, and suidinstalled on my laptop which boots Auditor Security Collection from the hard drive. When I first start Kismet, it seems to be working until...

FATAL: Could not write SSID track file '/home/tropical/.kismet/ssid_map' for writing: Permission denied

I have made certain that the directory is not write protected, and several times I have chowned it to my username, but it still won't work. Any ideas will be great.
Thanks in advance.
