Here is my start-up error I can't seem to get past:

------------------------------------------------
alan@oldcompaq:~$ sudo kismet
Server options: none
Client options: none
Starting server...
Waiting for server to start before starting UI...
Will drop privs to alan (1000) gid 1000
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
FATAL: Support for capture source type 'rt8180' was not built. Check the output from 'configure' for more information about why it might not have been compiled in.
[1] + Done(1) ${BIN}/kismet_server --silent ${server}
------------------------------------------------

Any suggestions? I'm using Ubuntu Feisty Fawn with the standard plug-and-play drivers that came with the distro (maybe that's the problem?). I'm using a Linksys WPC11 v.4 card, which uses the Realtek 8180L chipset, and this is also how it's recognized on the system. Here's the source info from my kismet.conf file:

------------------------------------------------
source=rt8180,ethX,REALTEK
------------------------------------------------

Please help! I'm very new to Linux so please be very easy on me. Thanks!
