Subject:FATAL: Failed to retrieve list of private ioctls 7:Argument list too long

Hi guys!

I have a wireless D-LINK AirPlus Xtreme DWL-G650 card and I am using madwifi ng.
I have airsnort running well, but it looks like I cant get kismet to work, I also tried the kismet-devel version but I keep getting the following:

Server options: none
Client options: none
Starting server...
Waiting for server to start before starting UI...
Will drop privs to dude (1000) gid 100
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
Source 0 (orinocosource): Enabling monitor mode for orinoco source interface ath0 channel 6...
FATAL: Failed to retrieve list of private ioctls 7:Argument list too long

I am not sure about the orinoco configuration, I chose it because it works with airsnort and kismet doesnt seem to be complaining about it. The only change I made in the kismet.conf (aside suiduser) is:

#source=none,none,addme
source=orinoco,ath0,orinocosource

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Efo
