Thanks, I will give that a try. I am not a developer at all, just a
long time mac user and as previously discussed, there does not seem
to have been any recent releases of Kismac, so interested in knowing
how to compile!

You should get this warning: svn list https://OpenSVN.csie.org/bi/ Error validating server certificate for 'https://OpenSVN.csie.org:443': - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!

(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently?
Type in p to accept the certificate permanently, and you should see:
GTDriver/ KisMACng/ SSIDLister/ UDPEchoTester/
Now get svnX out, go to Preferences, your path to svn binaries should be /sw/bin instead of /usr/local/bin (I think, tell me if it doesn't work, it might be /sw/local/bin). Then open the repositories window and hit the plus button.
Change "My Repository" to "KisMac", change "svn://" to "https://opensvn.csie.org/bi/" and then double-click it. You should now see a window with a filebrowser-like thing at the bottom, and a list of versions at the top. Make sure that r76 is selected. Hit the SVN Checkout button in the toolbar. Navigate to somewhere, hit New Folder. Call it "KisMac Source". Select it and hit open.
You should now see a scrollbar scrolling, while the source downloads. It will probably take a while.
While you wait (you say you are quite new to the apple system, if you were a developer on linux, you will probably want to check out some of the fink packages, there's a lot of stuff ported from linux on there.)
Now, when it's finished, you should have a folder there. Make sure you have the latest version of xcode (2.1). If not, get it from developer.apple.com. If you just installed it from the disks, you need to get the update from the web.
Double-click the "compile.command" file. When it's done, open the Build Folder > Deploy > Kismac and you'll find the built application. Drag this to your applications folder and you're good to go. From now on, you can merely open SVNX and checkout the latest build when it's released.
my 2 cents

Or provide a link to a guide? Do I need xcode on my powerbook to compile a working copy for that or will the PM version work on it too? Many thanks Jim
