> Sorry, /etc/kismet.conf said the version was 2005.06.R1, but the Ubuntu package is actually 2006.04.R1. Regardless, I removed the package and compiled 2007.01.R1b from source. Still, no packets are being captured. Are there any files I should post in this forum? Kismet.conf or kismet_drone.conf perhaps?

Did you remember to start kismet with root privs ? All the *buntu versions try to protect the user from doing stuff that might be harmfull to their current level of *nix-fu. So on the *buntu distro's you need to use sudo infront of any command that has the possibility to interact with the kernel/ip-stack/justaboutanythingatall.
