Subject:Error: Make on kismet-2005-08-R1 "undefined reference"
Date:20:38:09 21/12/2005

I had some problems installing kismet. First, I had an error about libncurses, okay fine. I google for the site and install the latest release from (ncurses 5.5). Everything installs fine and it works. I am then able to successfully run the configuration "./configure". Everything works fine.
Then I type "make" it exits out with an error. This is the output:

linux:/home/zeevolking/802.11/kismet-2005-08-R1 # make

Theres no solution to it online (I tried running a couple searches), only hints that maybe its ncurses 5.5 that is causing the problem (and maybe I should uninstall and install a previous version..)

Can anyone please help me? What am I doing wrong?
