I'm running Slamd-64 11.0 (64 bit port of Slackware) on kernel 2.6.20.

I've got WiSpy tools to compile and run OK, but only as root! OK, I read the warnings, so I was expecting this, but the documentation implies that it should be possible to run wispy_gtk as a user. However, it was a bit vague about how this might be achieved!

I need to have it running as a user as I need to have other applications open at the same time. I need to run WiSpy to monitor the band, but use an OpenOffice spreadsheet for scoring simultaneously!

What permissions exactly need to be set to permit this? Running it as suid doesn't work at all.

(Also, any chance of a native KDE version? Please?)

Looks very promising though - much more reactive than the windoze version!
