Hi everyone,

my Powerbook died and i wanted to wait for the 2ng gen macbooks. Now
I've got one and tried how kismac would work with it. Signal reception
is way better than the powerbook but i guess that was always the case,
even with the ibooks.

I compiled 217 and at first glance everything works fine. A few
glitches here and there.
Kismac dumps a lot of GPS-device data into the log. I have it up on the
desktop with geektool. Kinda hard to catch the "important" messages
when there's a new line every second or so.

"2006-12-06 10:50:25.316 KisMAC[390] nmesgs 3, tmsg 3, satsinview 11,

prn -1839244802 signal 5332992, sat4 prn 8 signal 6703536"

I had a few crashes. Not sure why though.

I also had problems with my DWL-122 A1. The loved spinning ball of

I can't tell for sure but it seemed that after waking up kismac would
run fine but wouldn't pick up new APs. After a restart it worked again.

Since I was gone so long I didn't want to post a new ticket.
It's great to see that Kismac is alive and kicking.
