Confirmed, I just updated to a 3.0 kernel (3.2.0-24), and this problem

Starting Nmap 5.61TEST5 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2012-05-26 19:37 CDT
Fetchfile found /usr/local/bin/../share/nmap/nmap-services
PORTS: Using top 1000 ports found open (TCP:1000, UDP:0, SCTP:0)

Reason: getsysroutes_dnet: sysroutes_dnet_find_interfaces() failed

If needed, I can do a debug build and step through this, but I'd
rather not, if someone can identify the issue first.

So do you think this is related to the monitor-mode problem that Henri
also saw?


I suspect it is because the interface doesn't have an IPv4 address. Do
you have a "mon1" interface in ifconfig output also?
