Hi,
Is there a way to compress a logfile when it is created? I am running kismet on a very small unit with about 5.5MB of available flash storage (I have enough cpu and RAM to compress the logs though).
I modified the log name so it will not increment and created a fifo, hoping to read from it, compressing and writing it compressed back but apparently kismet will refuse to open an existing logfile and write into it, any suggestions?

Thanks.
Alf
