Subject:FATAL: No 'listen' config line defined for the Kismet UI server
Date:16:00:10 21/07/2007

i keep getting this error when i try to start kismet:
FATAL: No 'listen' config line defined for the Kismet UI server

here is the full output when i type "sudo kismet" in a terminal:

here is my kismet.config file :
# Kismet config file
# Most of the "static" configs have been moved to here -- the command line
# config was getting way too crowded and cryptic. We want functionality,
# not continually reading --help!

# Version of Kismet config
version=2005.06.R1

# Name of server (Purely for organizational purposes)
servername=Kismet

# User to setid to (should be your normal user)
suiduser=ryan

# Sources are defined as:
# source=sourcetype,interface,name[,initialchannel]
# Source types and required drivers are listed in the README under the
# CAPTURE SOURCES section.
# The initial channel is optional, if hopping is not enabled it can be used
# to set the channel the interface listens on.
# YOU MUST CHANGE THIS TO BE THE SOURCE YOU WANT TO USE
source=madwifi_g,wifi0,AtherosG

# Comma-separated list of sources to enable. This is only needed if you defined
# multiple sources and only want to enable some of them. By default, all defined
# sources are enabled.
# For example:
# enablesources=prismsource,ciscosource

# Do we channelhop?
channelhop=true

# How many channels per second do we hop? (1-10)
channelvelocity=5

# By setting the dwell time for channel hopping we override the channelvelocity
# setting above and dwell on each channel for the given number of seconds.
#channeldwell=10

# Do we split channels between cards on the same spectrum? This means if
# multiple 802.11b capture sources are defined, they will be offset to cover
# the most possible spectrum at a given time. This also controls splitting
# fine-tuned sourcechannels lines which cover multiple interfaces (see below)
channelsplit=true

# Basic channel hopping control:
# These define the channels the cards hop through for various frequency ranges
# supported by Kismet. More finegrain control is available via the
# "sourcechannels" configuration option.
#
# Don't change the IEEE80211<x> identifiers or channel hopping won't work.

# Users outside the US might want to use this list:
# defaultchannels=IEEE80211b:1,7,13,2,8,3,14,9,4,10, 5,11,6,12
defaultchannels=IEEE80211b:1,6,11,2,7,3,8,4,9,5,10

# 802.11g uses the same channels as 802.11b...
defaultchannels=IEEE80211g:1,6,11,2,7,3,8,4,9,5,10

# 802.11a channels are non-overlapping so sequential is fine. You may want to
# adjust the list depending on the channels your card actually supports.
# defaultchannels=IEEE80211a:36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64 ,100,104,108,112,116,120,124,128,132,136,140,149,1 53,157,161,184,188,192,196,200,204,208,212,216
defaultchannels=IEEE80211a:36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64

# Combo cards like Atheros use both 'a' and 'b/g' channels. Of course, you
# can also explicitly override a given source. You can use the script
# extras/listchan.pl to extract all the channels your card supports.
defaultchannels=IEEE80211ab:1,6,11,2,7,3,8,4,9,5,1 0,36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64

# Fine-tuning channel hopping control:
# The sourcechannels option can be used to set the channel hopping for
# specific interfaces, and to control what interfaces share a list of
# channels for split hopping. This can also be used to easily lock
# one card on a single channel while hopping with other cards.
# Any card without a sourcechannel definition will use the standard hopping
# list.
# sourcechannels=sourcename[,sourcename]:ch1,ch2,ch3,...chN

# ie, for us channels on the source 'prism2source' (same as normal channel
# hopping behavior):
# sourcechannels=prism2source:1,6,11,2,7,3,8,4,9,5,1 0

# Given two capture sources, "prism2a" and "prism2b", we want prism2a to stay
# on channel 6 and prism2b to hop normally. By not setting a sourcechannels
# line for prism2b, it will use the standard hopping.
# sourcechannels=prism2a:6

# To assign the same custom hop channel to multiple sources, or to split the
# same custom hop channel over two sources (if splitchannels is true), list
# them all on the same sourcechannels line:
# sourcechannels=prism2a,prism2b,prism2c:1,6,11

# Hostort that GPSD is running on. This can be localhost OR remote!
# gpshost=localhost:2947
# Do we lock the mode? This overrides coordinates of lock "0", which will
# generate some bad information until you get a GPS lock, but it will
# fix problems with GPS units with broken NMEA that report lock 0
#gpsmodelock=false

# Packet filtering options:
# filter_tracker - Packets filtered from the tracker are not processed or
# recorded in any way.
# filter_dump - Packets filtered at the dump level are tracked, displayed,
# and written to the csv/xml/network/etc files, but not
# recorded in the packet dump
# filter_export - Controls what packets influence the exported CSV, network,
# xml, gps, etc files.
# All filtering options take arguments containing the type of address and
# addresses to be filtered. Valid address types are 'ANY', 'BSSID',
# 'SOURCE', and 'DEST'. Filtering can be inverted by the use of '!' before
# the address. For example,
# filter_tracker=ANY(!00:00E:AD:BE:EF)
# has the same effect as the previous mac_filter config file option.

# Burst rates control the number of packets sent at a time
# For example:
# alert=FOO,10/min,5/sec
# Would allow 5 alerts per second, and 10 alerts total per minute.
# A throttle rate of 0 disables throttling of the alert.
