I'm a newbie to Linux wireless. I followed the instuctions on the madwifi site for compiling and installing the latest madwifi drivers. I configured the source in the kismet.conf to be "source=madwifi_g,ath1,Madwifi-G".

When I launch kismet, I get the following message when Kismet tries to put the card in monitor mode:

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

I tried booting the same system using the BackTrack CD from When I configured the source statement in the kismet.conf file there, it launched successfully.

Does anyone know why kismet is having trouble getting the card into RFMON mode under FC4?
