> I get this if I don't put the interface in monitor mode first:
> Source 0 (Kismet): Enabling monitor mode for ipw3945 source interface wlan0 channel 6...

Make sure you have a version of your drivers that support monitor mode, and consult the troubleshooting section of the README.

OK, I'll dig on this.

If you have a chance, hop on the kismet IRC channel and ping me, #kismet

[ Edit - Looks like a long-standing bug where I didn't invert flags properly and it didn't ever ifconfig down the interface, so hopefully the latest SVN will work as I claimed now ]
