> Learning something new about Linux everyday. When I go do the locate -e, I find that the files truley do not exist. For some reason, apt-get isn't putting stuff into /etc/kismet like it's supposed too. Any thoughts? :(

Locate only updates once a day (usually at 3am). It is fast, because it uses a saved list of all files it saw when it updated - it doesn't look at your filesystem live. Locate doesn't reflect the true state of your system.

No idea on apt, I don't use it.
