This is a small instructional I slapped up couple minutes ago for TsingTao when he asked me how did I get these two running; pardon the grammar mistakes and such, English is not my native language and it's rather late here.
About Wellenreiter, I installed the files from the alternative cacko feed ( http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/ - libpcap, libopie1, libopie2, wellenreiter - install them in this order), at first I got some grays too because it didn't work, I clicked on Autodetect in settings, then checked if the driver name is correct, and there it was, hostap, and everything should work, but it didn't.
The thing was, after 20-some tries without any success I noticed the 'Name' selection box in Wellenreiter configuration, it defaults to wifi0 and it should be wlan0, I changed that and voila! it works. So, first you click on Autodetect, and then switch from wifi0 to wlan0 in Interface box.
About kismet, it is a bit more work. First, make sure you installed libpcap, kismet and kismet-qt from the cacko feed, then:
In the network app create a new service, call it anything you wish, on the config tab untick the 'Non-Spec ESS-ID' and enter 'any' as SSID. Switch the network type from Infrastructure to Ad-hoc and on the TCP/IP tab untick the box for automatic address assignment, then enter this: IP – 10.1.0.2 Mask - 255.0.0.0 Gateway 10.1.0.1
Also, untick the 'Autodetect nameservers' on the DNS tab and enter 10.1.0.1 in the first box.
Now, open /opt/QtPalmtop/etc/kismet/kismet.conf with your favourite editor =) and then find the 'source=blablabla' line (almost on the beginning). Change it to match your card (in my case it looks like this:
first one is the driver name (write it according to your card or according to what Wellenreiter had autodetected) and the second one is the interface name, be sure to change the interface name to wlan0 since the default is 'eth0', not much sense in leaving that right? The third part is name and you can put anything.
Now, scroll down, somewhere at 1/3 of the file there's a line 'gps=true', comment it down (put # in front of it). Save the file.
Connect to the network (dummy network) we configured on the beginning, then open a terminal (don't run the icon for kismet, fails for me too) and enter 'sudo kismet'. It should work. If it acts weird, try entering these two lines:
before starting up the network and running 'sudo kismet' (try the same with Wellenreiter if it fails too).
BTW, anyone knows how to get Kismet to display colors, AND the full lines (frames)? When I put TERM=vt100, color is not supported, when I put TERM=linux, lines do now show up correctly, and I'm not too sure if there's color, either.
