> > I am new to Kismet. I have downloaded the latest release, run the configure, make, and install. I am running CentOS based on the 2.6.18 kernel. I downloaded, compiled, and installed the libnl 1.0-pre8 component to get everything to pass the configuration step. I have edited my Kismet.conf file to use my wlan0 as my source. When the server comes up, I get the following error:

On further thinking, this actually implies that you've got a lib that isn't listing its dependencies properly
