Subject:Kismet + iwl3945 = Kernel panic ??
Date:07:26:51 31/07/2008

Hi there,

I'm not a new user to kismet, been using it with my atheros wireless card using madwifi-ng but now, I'm trying to use it with my intel 3945 wireless card using the iwl3945 drivers. Using the latest snapshot from the svn, kismet starts without any problems using the iwl3945 driver and my interface in monitor mode (mon0). I can see networks around and clients associated with them. Only problem, after a couple of minutes, I'm always getting a kernel panic. I'm using ubuntu 8.04 with kernel 2.6.24-19 with the 2008-07-30 version of compat-wireless drivers and the injection patch.

Using aircrack-ng for example during a long time does not crash the kernel. Only way to reproduce is simply to let kismet run for a couple of minutes (2-3 min) and all of the sudden, I'll get a kernel panic.

Does anyone knows how I can help the devs get more informations on why this is appenning ?? Thanks !
