> I'm trying to get a no-brand ZD1211b based USB adaptor working with kismet on my powerpc based mac running OS X 10.4.10.
> After a little bit of hacking to get it recognised, the adaptor is now working with ZyDAS' own drivers (v4.5.70).
> I'm using the latest version of kismet (2007-01-R1b) but it just keeps giving me errors:

This is for linux only.

> I've also tried source type 'hostap' (as someone on the forums had success on linux with that) but get the same error.

Linux only.

> Is there any way of forcing kismet to compile with zd1211 support?

Not on OSX.

> Any answers or suggestions would be gratefully received.

There is no support for ZD on OSX. If someone gets it working, I happily accept patches.
