View Full Version : Aircrack-ng: How to apply ath5k patch?

August 22nd, 2010, 12:03 AM
Hello Everyone ):P,

I am running the Ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition on an eeepc 900 with 16gb.
it has an atheros wifi card, and if i am not mistaking, patching the ath5k is not necessary for this version of ubuntu and onwards concerning packet injection??

I hope this post isn't wrongly placed though...
My problem specific:

I installed aircrack-ng through the ubuntu software center, and got GrimWepa as GUI for aircrack :D

My issue:
I am convinced that packet injection works, but it seems not to be able to collect data?
So i have been searching for a solution, and i found the following link:

But i dont know how to apply patches...

I found a tutorial (http://art.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1155599) in this forum given by NiceDude (http://art.ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=531942)...

I'm a quick learner for a noob, but not fast enough i guess...
Can anyone show me how to apply this patch, and patches in general?
I hope to get a step by step tutorial, coz I am totally new to linux.

Thanks in advance,
The Netherlands
