finally circled back to this ... fyi ... snow leopard 10.6.2 on a macbook pro ('bout three years old fwiw) ... pulled revision 2986 via svn ... compile and make went fine ... popped "ncsource=en1:name=en1" into /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf, sudo ifconfig en1 up and sudo kismet ... seems like the issue of trying to change channels on the interface (mentioned in earlier forum posts for snow leopard) is happening:

INFO: Resuming Darwin source en1...
ERROR: Darwin source en1: Failed to set channel 1: The operation couldnt be completed. (APPLE80211_ERROR_DOMAIN error -3900.) ERROR: Attempting to reset Darwin source en1, will resume channel hopping once reset is complete. INFO: Resuming Darwin source en1... ERROR: Darwin source en1: Failed to set channel 157: The operation couldnt be completed. (APPLE80211_ERROR_DOMAIN error -3900.)
...

so on and so forth ad nauseum ... i gather the issue is with apple doing what they want and not bothering to either remain consistent or informative ... or both

job'ed by steve again ... oh well ... i'll stick with my trusty openbsd lapper for this sort of chicanery
