In the course of researching this problem, I looked up the original developer's website, and found out exactly what uClibc++ actually is.

In a previous post, I mentioned that the lib came in when I loaded the Spritz-packaged kismet. While this is true of the 4.2 system, the first one I installed was 4.0, and that one seems to have loaded it by default. No way I am going through another wipe and reinstall (or actually two of them!) to confirm or disprove that statement.

Count another satisfied (at last!) kismet user...I left it running on the dining room table overnight and this am it had found 17 networks! Until now I had known only of three in my neighborhood.
