    Have been trying for hours, any help for aircrack? I've tried EVERYTHING

    Ok, so like the title says, I've been having a LOT of issues trying install aircrack-ng. I'm also having issues installing...well, anything. But that's a separate thread anyways.

    Ok, so first off, I am new to the whole ubuntu scene. Or, to be more accurate, the linux scene. I've read numerous other threads, and tried following the directions of others who are ill fated with the same problem. What I have tried:

    "sudo apt-get install build-essential
    sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

    wget http://download.aircrack-ng.org/aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz
    tar -zxvf aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz
    cd aircrack-ng-1.1

    In the aircrack-ng-1.1 directory there is a file called common.mak, use your favorite editor to open the file and scroll down till you see the following line:

    CFLAGS ?= -g -W -Wall -Werror -O3

    Delete the -Werror variable, so that the line now looks like the following. Save and exit.

    CFLAGS ?= -g -W -Wall -O3

    Run make and make install to get aircrack-ng up and running.

    try :
    sudo make


    and then :
    sudo make install"

    But every time I do so, I get an error:

    "[*] Run 'airodump-ng-oui-update' as root (or with sudo) to install or update Airodump-ng OUI file (Internet connection required)."

    How do I get past this? I'm sure it's probably something I've overlooked, or something, but any help would be MUCH appreciated at this point.


    Note: Just using it to further my own knowledge.

    Is there a good reason for you to compile aircrack?

    If not:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng

    I think it's called aircrack-ng
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng
    You can also install it via Software center.

    I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A QUANTAL QUETZAL IS...BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE PRETZEL AND I LIKE PRETZEL

    I thought that'd work originally, but when I do try that, I get this:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package aircrack

    Which its preposterous, as I must have downloaded it at least 50 times by now...

    Also, I have tried aircrack, aircrack-ng, aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz, and they all end up doing the same thing on the end command. At this point, I am vexed. I keep trying to do SOMETHING about the issue with the airdump-ng, but so far, nothing has worked.

    My bad, I got the wrong package name.

    What happens when you try:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng
    ?

    Btw, you might want to read up on package management: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoftwareManagement - whether you've downloaded something or not makes no difference whatsoever.

    Sadly, the exact same thing. I figure I must have done SOMETHING wrong in my attempts at organizing the new system and messed up something I shouldn't have.

    I'm guessing you've managed to break APT somehow. Okay, try:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Post the output and see if this fixes anything.

    "Reading package lists... Done

    aircrack-ng is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded."

    I'm not QUITE sure if this means success, but I'm putting my money more on "no." Also, thank you for the patience. And to think I used to be so tech savvy. Now it seems I'm a noob again. ^_^

    I would try with Ubuntu software center. Type aircrack into search bar and let us know what you get.
