However, lost or not I want to install kismet on my laptop. I have upgraded to Fedora 8. I have downloaded keimet and have checked out the documentation. I get the error libPCAP was not found. I am able to run tcpdump. Does the indicat that I have libPCAP somewhere on my system? If I do, how do I locate it and how do I mape the compile find it?

I am able to run tcpdump. This doesn’t indicate that I have libPCAP? No relationship between the two?
