these are the files in my /etc/kismet directory

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13113 Sep 15 19:46 ap_manuf
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25482 Sep 15 19:46 client_manuf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 13456 Dec 7 23:43 kismet.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4195 Sep 15 19:46 kismet_drone.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3573 Sep 15 19:46 kismet_ui.conf

how can i then keep getting these warnings?:

WARNING: Unable to open '/etc/kismet/ap_manuf' for reading (Permission denied), AP manufacturers and defaults will not be detected.
WARNING: Unable to open '/etc/kismet/client_manuf' for reading (Permission denied), client manufacturers will not be detected.

any other comments on the output are accepted with gratitude (especially on the fatal!)
