Subject:RC2 Segmentation Fault (at launch)
Date:04:31:41 28/05/2009

I have attempted to install RC2 on my Gentoo/Sabayon box. I tried to follow the steps closely - first a unzipping, then ./configure, then make, then make suidinstall (followed by adding the user to the kismet group). This installs kismet newcore into my /usr/local/bin with the config files in /usr/local/etc.

Whenever I try to run kismet, I get:

ERROR: Reading config file '%h/.kismet/kismet_ui.conf': 2 (No such file or directory)
Segmentation fault

My understanding is that %h is the home directory, so it should be <homedirectory>/.kismet/ , right?

The install didn't create the /.kismet directory - so I've even made one and dropped the config files in, but I still receive the same error.

I get the feeling I'm missing something obvious - Anyone have any input?
