> I've built the latest Kismet, and the Dedected plugin and Com-on-air driver (I have the type III card). I did the make node to create /dev/coa, which shows up on ls -l /dev. Kismet launches, but the console output says "Unable to open /dev/coa". Closing the console ahows the Dedected client plugin headings but never shows any stations.

It will never report data if it can't open the device.

Figure out why that is - probably permissions.
