Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Does anyone have experience with Kismet? I'm trying to get it working, but I can't, when I try to start it I get this:
devin@------:~$ 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.
NOTICE: Disabling channel hopping, no enabled sources are able to change channel.
Source 0 (addme): Opening none source interface none...
FATAL: Please configure at least one packet source. Kismet will not function if no packet sources are defined in kismet.conf or on the command line. Please read the README for more information about configuring Kismet.
this is my config file:
I don't know if this is right, but I have a Broadcom 4318, and my connection is on wlan0.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks a lot.
You should give it a try within a real root login, just to make sure that this problem is not caused by some side effect of the sudo mechanism. Note that using sudo does not read in the root $PATH, it still uses your logged user's $PATH settings, AFAIK.
