Kismet on the SL-6000 L built-in WIFI adapter is easy! biggrin.gif

These instructions apply to pdaXrom users, but may work on other distros with little or no modifications.

1. Install Kismet (Get it from here or the feed)

2. # adduser kismet (password optional)

3. # vi /usr/etc/kismet.conf



4. # vi /usr/bin/kismet

Add the following under #!/bin/sh

/etc/rc.d/init.d/wlan restart && cd /home/kismet


5. # kismet [RETURN]

6. Viola! laugh.gif

7. If you want speech enabled (I think it's cool) cool.gif download and install flite and then...

# vi /usr/etc/kismet_ui.conf

festival=/usr/bin/flite (this is sometimes /usr/local/bin/flite, depends where you get flite)


8. Want GPS too? Make sure you install gpsd first then create the symlink for the gps device to a serial port.

# ln -s /dev/ttyS0 /dev/gps

Now add gpsd to the kismet startup script

vi /usr/bin/kismet

Add the following under #!/bin/sh

/usr/sbin/gpsd (again, this could be something else, depending where you get gpsd)


9. If you are going to be storing large packet captures, then I recommend that you create a new /home/kismet directory on removable storage (/mnt/cf or /mnt/card) and symlink to it. This way you won't run out of storage space on the Z.

# mkdir /mnt/card/home/kismet
# chown kismet:kismet /mnt/card/home/kismet
# rm -rf /home/kismet
# ln -s /mnt/card/home/kismet /home/kismet

... the solution must be so simple that it's hard to discover dry.gif .

Hmmm... I didn't find it so difficult at all...

All I had to do was read your post! biggrin.gif
