I've installed Kismet 2009-06-R1 as "suidinstall" on my MBP running OS X 10.5.7.

When I run it, the server gives this error:
|*** KISMET HAS ENCOUNTERED A FATAL ERROR AND CANNOT CONTINUE. *** ││
│Shutting down log files... ││
│FATAL: Failed to open pcap dump file '/Users/walts/Documents/Kismet/Kismet-20││
│ 722-07-00-49-1.pcapdump': No such file or directory ││

The folder named does exist, and I have tried starting Kismet with an Admin account, setting the folder to "read/write" for all users, even took the logprefix out of kismet.conf to force the log files to my home directory, but nothing seems to work.

Will someone help, please?

TIA
Walt
