Kismet compiled and ready for pdaXrom
« on: April 19, 2004, 03:07:06 am »
Kismet is now compiled and working. Download it from our IPK feed and also have a look at the Kismet FAQ section. Together Kismet and pdaXrom makes your Zaurus the best wifi sniffing tool ever.

You can find the file at our  feed.

Please report any bugs and problems with kismet in this forum and not on the bug reporting page on www.pdaXrom.org

How many people are compiling things for the pdaXrom -- do you have the user-area upload feed in any level of working order?

Excellent - I was working at that yesterday but didn\'t get it finished. I\'ll try the new binary asap and give feedback if any.  8)

I installed it, and it works beautifully with my Ambicom wifi.  

However, not only does it not work with my Socket card (no shock, just disappointment ), after installing and playing with Kismet my WLAN connection no longer works correctly, despite reconfigurations and reboots.  (although Kismet continues to work, with the Ambi)  The cards power up and start blinking their \'offline\' pattern with the LED.  A subsequent \"ip l s eth0 up\" brings up the connection, however.

Also, although the network.opts and wireless.opts files are still there, and appear to have correct settings, and when I \'apply\' from the LAN applet it saves the changes, whenever I launch the LAN applet it comes up blank - all fields empty.

Did I simultaneously break networking and install kismet, or is this all related?

/etc/pcmcia/network start eth0

hwkeye: Try a lsmod and post the output here and a iwconfig too - try editing the kismet.conf in /usr/etc/ - try different settings for source eg:
source=hostap,eth0,hostapsource
source=orinoco,eth0,orinocosource

Hi Laze,

lsmod give me :

Module                         Used by          Tainted
orinoco_cs                    1
orinoco                         0                   [orinoco_cs]
hermes                         0                   [orinoco_cs orinoco]

I remember under Qtopia sash  we have a config file called
wlan-ng.conf
Do you think it is missing in pdaXrom and it is why for making my wireless card work I have to execute those commands:
#iwconfig eth0 key MY_WEP_KEY open
#iwconfig eth0 ESSID MY_ESSID_NAME

thanks for your help.

Thanks Laze,

I unremark orinoco driver and it seems to work.

But I got some problem about suid user. I have following kismet FAQ section in www.pdaxrom.org

in kismet.conf, suiduser=kismetusr

I launch kismet and I got an error message about permission file denied for a file .dump

Do you know what can I do ?

One other possible problem with the current kismet and the socket CF card.
The original Spectrum card needed a usleep call between each of the calls to set monitor mode and channel in pcapsource.cc.  There are more calls now, and (on my card) I had to insert more usleep(5000) calls.
If pdaXrom is using an updated driver or wireless config calls, it might work without these.

source=prism2,wlan0,prismwsource,2

and just got an error:

I don't know if the 6000 uses HostAP, but you could try using "hostap" or "orinoco" as the source type.

Ok thanks man, Oh and I got it working, using a how to i found for the SL-6kL and now the wifi works great.  I saw you had a feed up... and working too.. but one problem with it, I added pidgin and i can't run it as i need a lib thats not listed in your feed. could you add libpangocairo-1.0.so.0 ? or am i not configuring it right?
