Subject:Atheros error on Kismet?
Date:19:47:23 21/12/2010

I have an Atheros a/b/g card. I've tried editing the conf file in /etc/kismet/ and adding the madwifi config settings. This is what I have:

I've tried editing it to a,b,g,ag and just madwifi. But whenever I run Kismet, I get this error on my terminal:

chronic@ubuntu:/etc/kismet$ sudo kismet
Launching kismet_server: //usr/bin/kismet_server
Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure.
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Non-RFMon VAPs will be destroyed on multi-vap interfaces (ie, madwifi-ng)
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
FATAL: Unknown capture source type 'madwifi' in source 'madwifi,wlan0,madwifi'

Can anyone explain why I'm getting this error and help me fix it? I'm quite sure madwifi is used for atheros cards.
