ipkg install libncurses

(this should have been done automatically by ipkg -- which firmware are using?)

I cannot reproduce the bug. When I install kismet-client, libncurses is installed at the same time (it provides libpanel) and I can connect to a remote kismet-server.

Please ensure you have libncurses installed.

ipkg removed each kismet, kismet client, kismet server
ipkg install kismet
kismet packages installed; libncurses installed
now working fine! Thanks for looking at this.

Note: the original installation was using my own local packages mirror website; missing libncurses from my mirror; "ipkg install kismet" failed when trying to download libncurses; place libncurses file on mirror; "ipkg install kismet" again and it completed installation with no further error messages but maybe did not properly recover from missing the file.
