Subject:Kismet 2010-07-R1 compilation problems in Ubuntu 10.10
Date:06:07:01 28/11/2010

Hello. I am trying to compile Kismet 2010-07-R1 under Ubuntu 10.10. I already haunted which dependencies I needed to install, which include: build-essential libncurses5 libncurses5-dev libpcap0.8 libpcap0.8-dev but I am getting 2 strange warnings while I do ./configure:

configure: WARNING: Using local radiotap headers

config.status: WARNING: '' seems to ignore the --datarootdir setting

After running ./configure, I tried running make dep, and make.

make dep throws:

Makefile:281: .depend: No such file or directory
Generating dependencies...
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/luis/Downloads/kismet-2010-07-R1'

make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/luis/Downloads/kismet-2010-07-R1'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/luis/Downloads/kismet-2010-07-R1'

which seems to be fine but make command looks like it didn't finish, this are the last lines:

g++ -I/usr/include/ncurses -Wall -g -O2 -c -o popenclient.o

Then sudo checkinstall throws this:

I can't figure what is happening by myself, any advice?
