Hi there!

Anyone see this cool little thumb-drive sized spectrum analyzer?
http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/accessories/80ce/

They even say that the friendly folks at Kismet have created X/Linux based software:
http://www.kismetwireless.net/wispy.shtml

Since it looks like gtk libraries are used, will this work on X/Qt? Is it possible, Meanie? It would make a really cool Wireless analyzing machine.

TIA

Craig...

I've used it on linux, mac, and windows. I use a mac more often than anything else. The mac software is nicer to look at though. If you go to my website under the computer stuff there is a movies section that has a recording of my microwave running. It's real handy to use to see what is causing wifi drop outs. I used the libusb that's with the software, didn't know if it had the proper driver patches or not. I know there was a guy that had it working over at the kismet wireless site, but I haven't been able to get ahold of him.

The kismet wireless site _says_ it is a userland tool, which I imply does not require any kernel modules (I hope). I have a few linuxppc machines here I can try it on (once I get one) as well as the Zaurus with the cacko libusb.

Barry, any chance you can tell us which version of libusb you are running on linux (with either synptic or rpm, depending on your flavor of linux)?

Thanks,

Craig...

Slackware 10.2 libusb-0.1.8

The wispy src has wispy_libusb.c file if that helps anything.
