Kismet


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.
Kismet exiting.
Done.

this is my config file:

source=bcm43xx,wlan0,BCM43XX

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.

I've closed your duplicate thread (Here is the right place). There is one post with advice in the other thread.
