Ok, I tried OpenSuSE... too slow.

So I am back to SLED11, but I used an OpenSuSE kismet RPM and got it installed.

Now when I try to run kismet, i get

Source 0 (ath0): Enabling monitor mode for madwifing_ag source interface wlan0 channel 6...
ERROR: Unable to create VAP: Operation not supported
ERROR: Unable to create monitor-mode VAP
WARNING: wlan0 appears to not accept the Madwifi-NG controls. Will attempt to configure it as a standard Madwifi-old interface. If you are using madwifi-ng, be sure to set the source interface to the wifiX control interface, NOT athX
FATAL: Failed to retrieve list of private ioctls 95:Operation not supported

I previously ran kismet on this same hardware using the source line


and it worked fine. Now when I do an iwconfig, I don't see any wifi0 listing, instead I have wlan0. So I changed the line to read "madwifing_ag,wlan0,ath0", but now I get this. As always, any help is appreciated.
