Has anyone gotten kismet running on pdaxrom beta3 with ambicom wl-1100 card?

If yes, can you post the kismet.conf file here so I can get working copy.

Thanks

This is very similar to my kismet.conf. However, it should be pointed out that to get kismet to run a few more steps are required:

create a user to run kismet under, in this case type the following and skip the password. Although Kismet starts under root it then drops back to being a normal user as specified within kismet.conf
adduser kismet

Crate a wifi profile, mine is called sniff and looks like this
ip: 10.0.0.1
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 10.0.0.2
DNS: 10.0.0.2
ESSID: sniff
Operation mode: Ad-Hoc

I then have a little shell script called kstart which looks like this:

#!/bin/sh
cardctl scheme sniff
cd /home/kismet
export TERM=xterm-color
kismet

this starts it up and it runs in full colour. Nice!

I've just got kismet working on a Symbol Spectrum24 card too which is useful as the driver seems to support promiscuous mode. I could never get this to work on the Ambcom card.

Every time I run kismet, I get an error that it can't open the terminal (Error opening terminal: rxvt). I've tried rxvt and xterm. I have ncurses installed... any ideas?
