    Omg!!

    To my thread closer:

    For God's sake!!. I didn't even had time to say thanks!, let alone.....

    .... bad, bad, bad....
    Please, don't be so radikal and drastic; don't close the threads so quickly without any bit of FEEDBACK!. I didn't even had time to say thanks, hahaha... It is funny and sad at the same time....

    Re: Omg!!

    Are you referring to your thread about activities we don't support here on an old version of Ubuntu?

    I reviewed the threads that have been closed, and you I agree we have a fantastic staff. There are times when spam is cleaned before it is reported for example.

    In the case of your threads, you are asking about versions of Ubuntu that have reached EOL

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

    Once a version of Ubuntu is at EOL it is no longer supported, and thus requests for support are off topic and subject to closure. Same is true of Fedora or Debian or any distro that is beyond EOL. I am sorry you had to learn this the hard way.

    Second, support of penetration testing tools is limited. We will help support installation but we do not support teaching to use these tools. for the sort of assistance you are requesting I would suggest you use Backtrack.

    Hopefully that clears up your understanding of the staff actions and what support is and is not available here.

    Just to add to what bodhi.zazen said, aircrack and friends have been removed from the repositories in Precise, as it is no longer maintained, and quite buggy.

    Well, there are many buggy and unpolished things like Unity, to name just one.

    And, ok, I didn't know that the so called "hard way" was the new ubuntu way. Just that.

    Does that mean that you don't allow human beings to help other human beings as regards old ubuntu versions?! Why?

    Just to add to what bodhi.zazen said, aircrack and friends have been removed from the repositories in Precise, as it is no longer maintained, and quite buggy.
    But they are in Lucid Lynx LTS, aren't they?

    That is what I was asking for in the first place. The thread was closed so quickly, that you probably didn't have time to realize that. Nobody asked me nothing, let alone listened my answer.

    We'll see what other surprises the future provides us....

    The limits of the available support on these forums have been explained to you and we will have to agree to disagree.

    You are free to do what you like with your time on your personal blog or website.

    I have already given you the best possible advice - Run a supported version of Ubuntu and seek assistance with penetration testing with the Backtrack Community.

    Good luck to you.
