Subject:newcore: Failed to open pcap dump file
Date:05:27:47 13/08/2008

addendum: I tried the following
+ recompiled madwifi driver (v0.9.4)
+ reinstalled kismet as "suiduser"
+ made sure all non-monitor VAPs before I start kismet
+ start kismet server/client separately
-> still no packets, dump files are empty, however:

+ "ifconfig" shows incoming packets for kis0 and wifi0, e.g "RX packets:81" (yet loopback interface doesn't count up..)
+ "sudo tcpdump -vv -s 0 -i kis0" works fine:
tcpdump: WARNING: kis0: no IPv4 address assigned

any idea what am I missing? (I use an Atheros 5212 card and use"source=madwifi_g,wifi0,atheros,10", tried both pcap dump PPI and 80211).
