I saw a bunch of posts on this forum from people who had this problem when first starting Kismet, with no answer. Off site, the solution at this link worked for me:

Basically, a line needs to be added to your /etc/hosts file. I'm running Fedora Core 6, so this might be different depending on your distribution.

Add the following:

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

That solved my problem and Kismet started up. Hope this helps.
