Hey Mike,

Yeah, have to compile for the specific platform that you intend to use.
During my experience, I compile a complete firmware image with OpenWRT and include Kismet in the buildroot process. I only have experience using OpenWRT, but it seems to be the best platform for this sort of application.

Couple of links you may find helpful if you are intending to use OpenWRT:

Makefile for 2010-01-R1 (if you want to use 2010-07, couple changes are needed to point to correct package and md5sum)

How To for kismet newcore on OpenWRT

Like I mentioned in another post, Renderman has written a new guide covering drones and OpenWRT. Its only on Hackers For Charity at the moment, but he said it would be released publicly in the near future. I would subscribe to the website to read it, however, I am a poor thesis student. It will definitely be a good guide. Oh, and maybe check out the "Kismet Hacking" book, got some good info on drones, but a little old now, and focuses on the old Kismet versions.

If you have any success, could you pop up a post, I am still having issues connecting to my 2010-07 build. But 2010-01 is working well for me at the moment.
