Update: Since the Kismet package isn’t available anymore, here is Installing aircrack-ng on a N800.
To run Kismet on a N800, you need to be root. Normally, you don’t have root access on a N800, you do need to apply a hack to get it. There are several hacks (flashing, sshd, …) but I prefer the godmode trick.
Here’s how I did it, use at your own risk:
Now I did install some other packages between 2 and 3, that’s probably why I didn’t have to install ncurses-base explicitly.
To start Kismet, start Xterm and type these commands:
- sudo gainroot
