I'm having an issue with Kismet not saving logs. 

Below are my non-default settings in the kismet_logging.conf with the comments removed.

     enable_logging=true

     log_title=Kismet


     log_prefix=/root/kismet_logs

 

     log_types=kismet,wiglecsv

I created the "/root/kismet_logs" directory as a test when the default setting "log_prefix=./" was not saving to the pineapple from the directory I was launching kismet from (Default: /root). I've tried to find some other documentation on this issue, but I could not the same issue reported. Any help or advice would be appreciated!

Hi,

have you tried the following;

sudo nano /etc/kismet/kismet_site.conf 

Create logging directory:

mkdir /home/pi/kismet_logs

Change default logging directory in kismet:

sudo nano /etc/kismet/kismet_logging.conf

###Modify the log_prefix entry to this to write the logs to the appropriate place log_prefix=/home/pi/kismet_logs/

source: Logging - Kismet (kismetwireless.net)

the conf file is /etc/kismet/kismet.conf (only if you have specified overwrite of optional _site.conf)

kismet_site.conf Optional configuration override; Kismet will load any options in the kismet_site.conf file last and they will take precedence over all other configs.

As I said in the original post, I did create the directory and made the correct changes to the /etc/kismet/kismet_logging.conf file. The odd thing is that on the Pineapple, the /etc/kismet/kismet_site.conf file does not exist. Also, per the documentation on Logging - Kismet (kismetwireless.net), by default Kismet will save the log in the directory it was launched in. This also was not working. 

What I see in the /etc/kismet directory:
root@mk7:/etc/kismet# ls -A
http_data             kismet_drone.conf     kismet_package.conf
kismet.conf           kismet_filter.conf    kismet_uav.conf
kismet.conf-opkg      kismet_httpd.conf     kismet_wardrive.conf
kismet_80211.conf     kismet_logging.conf
kismet_alerts.conf    kismet_memory.conf
root@mk7:/etc/kismet#
