Hello-

I was using kismet on my SLED 10.1 machine and it was working fine. I upgraded to SLED 11.0 and now I cannot get kismet to work. Before the upgrade I had a wifi0 interface to specify as a source for Kismet; now I have wlan0 and wlan1, but no wifix.

I installed a snapshot (madwifi-trunk-r4128-20100325) as well as an rpm for OpenSuSE (madwifi-0.9.4-1.i586.rpm).

Here are some results of commands I think are relevant:

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have looked around online and have not been able to resolve this. It is also weird that it would work just fine under SLED10.1 and not under SLED11.0.

Thanks in advance.
