hello developer, I'm afraid all versions of KisMAC beyond 0.2.99 will crash on my MB4,1 and iMac8,1 :(
[Version 0.3.3]

no offence to the developer, but I don't keep unusable apps in my Applications folder - where KisMAC 0.2.99 is. It's decompressed onto my desktop so I can quickly delete after testing it.

many thanks to JoeNoname, my problem is solved by unchecking ch14. I was being greedy and had KisMAC to sniff all channels for me :)

KisMAC 0.3.3 is now in my Applications folder :)
But why 0.2.99- had no problem with ch14 before?

Well, trace back to all my posts, I never called, or implied that KisMAC is piece of anything.

It's an excellent program and I've been using it for years. Even when 0.3.0/1/2/3 crashed on my machines, I still gave it a 4-start rating and rolled back to 0.2.99. I'm thankful for the developer's effort in maintaining this project, but I'm not sorry for anything or anyone.

On the other hand, I'd appreciate it if the developer would investigate why scanning ch14 worked fine with 0.2.99 and before, but stopped working since 0.3.0. CH13/14 isn't used in some regions, but it doesn't mean the WiFi card can not scan it. It's obviously a new bug since KisMAC 0.3.0, because 0.2.99- could cope with ch14, on my same machines, with no problem.

Here's more info that may be helpful:

I'm in a computer lab where no neighbour is nearby. I only run my experiments on 802.11n. According to my analogue spectrum analyser, CH14 isn't occupied. I use KisMAC as an additional digital scanner to monitor 802.11b/g usages near my test-bed.

I am also glad that I can finally keep up with the latest KisMAC. And thanks to JoeNoname gain, for the fix.

v0.3.1 would freeze in aprox. 2 seconds after starting capturing in 10.6.5 --- the same issue in 0.3. I'm rolling back to 0.2.99 :(

not to my surprise, v0.3.2 crashed on both my iMac 8.1 and macbook 4.1. I didn't even bother to install the new version this time so I don't need to roll back...

you forgot to remove ._* as well. use:

"find" & drivepath & "-type f -name "._*" -exec rm -rf {} ;"

(not sure if the escapes are correct, I normally just use

find . -type f -name "._*" -exec rm -rf {} ;

in terminal)
