I recently installed Kismet on OS X and dont know what to do from here. How do I get kismet to open? I tried typing this in xterm: sudo /sw/bin/kismet but it gave me the following message:

Server options: none
Client options: none
Starting server...
Waiting for server to finish starting before startuing UI...
FATAL: Could not find user 'your_user_here' for dropping priviledges.
Make sure you have a valid user set for 'suiduser' in your config.
Starting UI...
FATAL: Could not connect to localhost:2501.
Client exited, terminating...
Done. Run kismet_unmonitor or eject and re-insert your card (or restart your
pcmcia services) to return your card to normal operation.

What do I need to do to use Kismet with a GUI? Thanks in advance.
