Hi there you guys,

I'm on SuSE and i haven't compiled kismet myself, but was installed via the installation of my very SuSE.

I own an orinoco gold pcmcia and i want you to tell me what to do for kismet to work cause i get some messages that i do not understand.

The messages follow :

Server options: none
Client options: none
Starting server...
Waiting for server to start before starting UI...
Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure.
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
Source 0 (orinocosource): Enabling monitor mode for orinoco source interface eth1 channel 6...
FATAL: Could not find 'monitor' private ioctl or use the newer style 'mode monitor' command. This typically means that the drivers have not been patched or the correct drivers are being loaded. See the troubleshooting section of the README for more information.
