Hey guys,
I am trying to execute kismet_server as a background process so I can connect to it via a laptop or other device. (I dont like they keyboard.) Unfortunately, it isn't going so well. When I execute the script straight from the terminal it runs flawless however when I execute it from my init.d script it just zombies as a daemon (I am daemonizing properly) and runs for about 10 min as a background process.

My script is as follows:

sudo kismet_server -f config.file -s &

If I have the & I believe it actually becomes more unstable. Has anyone had success with this?

Thanks guys!
