Subject:kismet and error with latest madwifi-ng drivers
Date:23:28:56 25/06/2007

Hello everyone!

I am some kind of newbie with kismet, and i just tried to start it again after i installed the very latest madwifi-ng drivers for my atheros chipset.
Before, with my former madwif drivers it was ok , i could launch kismet, but now i get the following error. I already changed "ath0" to "wifi0" in kismet.conf as told by the first error message, and that is all i did.I run Kubuntu dapper drake as an OS.
Thanks for help.
