I've finally upgrade to Kismet-2009-06-R1 but set-up seems to be different:
I've two 802.11p (5.89GHz) interfaces (ath0 and ath1) each one have other three interfaces athX.1 .2 .3... I usually use them to communicate with other identical machine using protocols encapsulated in IPv6.

I starts kismet using "kismet -X -c ath0" but it replace all interfaces ath0 ath0.0 ath0.1 ath0.2, with kis0 kis0.0 kis0.1 kis0.2 and channel hop is still enable!

The new kis0 is a monitor mode interface and I like it (I can capture Radiotap) but I would like to keep ath0 ath0.0 ath0.1 ath0.2 and also have kis0 in monitor mode with channel hop not-enable at same frequency of ath0 (5.89GHz)!

When I close Kismet, kis0 has been destroyed and there is no ath0 interface

/tmp is flushed automatically at set intervals by Fedora

It also seems Kismet is not using my /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf because I've add
and I've change log-files default name but It still save with the old one even if I run kismet using -f option
kismet -c ath0 -X -f /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf

Do you have any suggestion?
