If I start up kismet_drone on an Atheros (Fonera) unit using the trunk build the drone crashes and dmesg produces the following output.

I don't have the experience to be able to tell if this is kismet_drone error or the network drivers crashing, if someone could give me some pointers I'll do further investigation.

check your memory usage, maybe the kismet_drone has a setting for that as well. the kernel log says you're running out of ram.
