    Alacrity, could you post the result of "lshw -C Network" in terminal? I wonder what driver you're using. I currently use the Broadcom STA (wl) driver, but aircrack-ng doesn't want to work for me.

    WOW! Apparently the b43 driver included with Xubuntu works out of the box. That's great! I'll have to find out how to get it working in Ubuntu.

    This is good news also...

    Does it work "out of the box"? If so, you must be using "rawhide" Fedora 12 Beta or Alpha? Could you confirm which one?

    Did you also test for aircrack-ng injection capability?

    Thanks in advance.

    Olong,

    Yes, for some reason Ubuntu 9.10 did not fly for me the same way. If you get it working, let me know. Actually, Xubuntu is pretty darn close to Ubuntu except for the missing gnome.....so if one works, the other should work as well.

    Good thread.

    I downloading Xubuntu to test it right now. Alacrity, does the driver work immediately on the live cd or only after installation? I guessing rusty73 is using Fedora 12 Beta since it's the newest version.

    Hi Chenx,

    I installed Xubuntu 9.10 on an old PC then just pulled in aircrack-ng and airoscript....then did a remastersys....and then put the remastersys on a persistent usb stick.....then booted up my one week old netbook: HP Mini 311 with Win7.

    And, voila! All worked well.

    I will try the Fedora. Yes, I had read in another forum that the kernel 2.6.31 supported b43 so I think that is the key.

    Although I have no idea why Xubuntu works and Ubuntu does not work. I also just tried the Ubuntu_netbook_remix 9.10 and it did not work either.

    For you, if Xubuntu works, just add gnome and you have Ubuntu I think.......

    Let me know how it works for you.

    A



    Correction: The usb did not have to be persistent....since it was the full iso.

    I wasn't able to boot Xubuntu, it gave me I/O errors. I'll have to get new DVD-RW discs soon. Anyway, I got the b43 driver to work in the regular Ubuntu. I had to install the "linux-backports-modules-karmic" package and had to blacklist the "ssb" driver. I'm assuming that Xubuntu already has that package, so therefore, it works. Aircrack-ng even works too. I'll update my original post to add this information. Below are my logs for reference:

    Sounds like you were very busy!

    And, yes, I just booted up my Xubuntu and I see that the linux-backports-modules-karmic 2.6.31.14.27 is already installed. So, maybe you made a nice guess.

    Also, I will try your new process on a persistent 8GB usb and see if I can get Ubuntu going.

    A

    EDIT: Tried Ubuntu 9.10 with your process and a persistent usb. Unfortunately, it did not work for me. There must be something more in your process that you may not have shown (more than the three steps you show in your initial post). What else did you add to the original Ubuntu 9.10 ISO? Compat, firmware, cutter, and so on? At first, I thought maybe on my persistent usb the blacklisted items were not coming thru at the beginning of the boot (when blacklisted items are initially checked during the boot process) but then I booted up the fullly working Xubuntu and there are no blacklisted line items for wl or ssb.
