Subject:Kismet crashing on OpenWRT Backfire/WRT54GL
Date:23:51:40 19/03/2014


I compiled OpenWRT Backfire (10.03.1) including the kismet package (2010-07-R1), and deployed it to my WRT54GL. I am using the mac80211 drivers.
I also had to manually install libnl after setup.

However, kismet crashes upon startup.

Is there anything I could do to diagnose or even fix this issue?
