I installed hostap driver, and are trying to use it with kismet. When it stars, I got: FATAL: channel get ioctl failed 22:Invalid argument.

I believe that hostap is widly used with kismet, and possibly somebody got the same problem.

I posted similar message on Kismet site, who knows if it because of kismet or hostap configuration.

BTW, installation of hostap did not give any errors, I can see it iwconfig, and it is monitor mode.

Thanks a lot
