I installed miruo for wifi monitoring playing around --- I googled miruo 
and all I get is Asian writting even in GIT i don't speak that let alone 
read it.. I am getting this error when trying to run it off the command 
line 

[userx@voided ~]$ miruo
miruo_init_pcap: [error] wlan0: You don't have permission to capture on 
that device (socket: Operation not permitted) wlan0

how do I set that up? 
this is the groups I belong to so far
[userx@voided ~]$ groups
userx wheel lp users

and these are all of the groups I have on box
[userx@voided ~]$ cat /etc/group
