Subject:Error when I run Kismet on Fedora Core 4
Date:18:39:40 22/02/2006

my kernel is 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4
my wifi card is orinocco pci. It seems atheros driver is ok, so :
I installed madwifi_ng drivers ( version r1311-20051108 or r1418-20060131 ) : OK
I compiled/installed/configured kismet( stable version ) : OK

When i run kismet, this fatal error happens ( with each version of madwifi ) :
