Anyone got kismet's ui working
I just installed kismet using the Slackbuilds script via sbopkg.

The display (ncurses) is completely unusable. Most of the screen is blank, but something is trying to display because hitting Tab highlights some fields which then disappear when I tab somewhere else.

I can't enter anything because kismet doesn't respond to Esc, or ~ or `.

I have to exit by Ctrl-C.

According to kismet's (minimal) docs, kismet should just build. mc (midnight commander) is working fine, so I'm pretty sure I've got a working ncurses library.

Anyone got kismet working on 13.37?

Which terminal emulator are you using? (if running kismet through Xorg).

In some cases you need to do something like this:

TERM=xterm kismet
I had this problem using rvxt-unicode, passing TERM=xterm seems to fix it for me.

Thank you. I am using xterm, but TERM is set to xterm-256color, so changing it to xterm fixed the problem.
