Thanks - it's nice to know the combination should probably work. Your
mentioning channel-hopping led me to turn off channel hopping
(channel_hopping=false in the config file) and lo! Kismet starts.
However, the output is less than useful :-) It ends up saying "didn't
detect any networks" and exiting.

That would make your version very different to mine; I have no
"kismet_hopper" binary, and setting up a config file is an essential
step in installing my version.
So, since I definitely do have a problem, I guess I need more detail.
Does anyone else have a config file for Kismet 3.0.1?
