I have been running kismet on an original Droid with a 8 gig micro-SD card. 4 gig is fat32 for the phone pics , videos, and such, the other 4 gig has Debian Squeeze running on it. Not to hard to setup.
Once the phone is rooted (must have) you can just use the freebee Linux installer from the market. Uncheck the loop box in settings, and change the device install to
/sd-ext. Further at the bottom you will need to change the device to
mmcblk0p2 or whatever your actual ext2 formatted Linux partition is.
You can type
mount into terminal and it will list all the currently mounted directories and partitions. Make sure that
mmcblk0p2 or whatever is mounted to
/sd-ext. The phones by default will mount the Linux partition on the
/sdcard at boot, but do check and make sure.
I suggest connecting to Wi-Fi with fast inets for this, although your 3G with good bars will work just fine for this too.
Just follow the buttons 1) 2) 3):
- 1 is extract Debian to ****,
- 2 is install Debian to SD card,
- 3 is install script.
Be patient, each step will take time. If you get errors check the log. Each device is a little different, but you will get it.
I have my kismet log dumps going to the fat32 partition on the
sdcard. This way it is very easy to get the files you need for things like kismet log viewer or Backtrack.
Enjoy, I hope this sparks some fun for you :)
