Hi,

I would like to run kismet_drone on a TP TL-MR3020. I have installed OpenWRT and kismet_drone, and configured kismet.conf.

When I launch kismet_drone I get this error:-

ERROR: Kismet was started as root, NOT launching external control binary. This
is NOT the preferred method of starting Kismet as Kismet will continue
to run as root the entire time. Please read the README file section
about Installation & Security and be sure this is what you want to do.

That error messages just keeps rolling until shutdown.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Regards.
