sorry my chipset is ralink 2860 not raltek

i followed your instruction, if i launch your command while kismet is running, i have:

- andrea@andrea-laptop:~$ sudo tcpdump -s 0 -w foo.dump -i ra0
- tcpdump: listening on ra0, link-type PRISM_HEADER (802.11 plus Prism
- header), capture size 65535 bytes

and nothing happens. if i press ctrl+c it closes and give me:

497 packets captured
497 packets received by filter
0 packets dropped by kernel

any solutions?
thank u :((
