It won't die with no messages, you may not be looking at them, but they're there. Even if the message is the rather useless 'segfault'.

A common culprit is dhcpcd. Make sure it isn't running.

Run kismet_server in a terminal and wait for it to exit and see what the reason is.

If it's actually consistently segfaulting, PLEASE run it under gdb (gdb ./kismet_server) and then send me the crash and the backtrace (whatever it says when it dies, followed by the output of the command 'bt')
