    Default aircrack-ng suite !

    I want to ask a few questions because I am getting a little confused about tools associated with compatible drivers.

    I need to update aircrack-ng suite under Virtual Box in Backtrack 3. My question is once I done that is it also necessary to update all drivers and patches of my wireless card (ALFA rt8187l 500mW) as well?

    Where is the normal directory of aircrack-ng in Backtrack 3?

    I assume it's in
    Code:
    /pentest/wireless/aircrack-ng
    and the files inside this directory are

    Code:
    AUTHORS                 Makefile          build_aircrack.sh*   evalrev*      src/
    ChangeLog               README          common.mak          manpages/   test/
    INSTALLING              VERSION         contrib/                packages/
    LICENSE                   airdriver-ng     description-pak      patchchk
    LICENSE.OpenSSL      airmon-ng       doc-pak                patches/
    Are am I in the right directory where I can also update aircrack-ng using

    Code:
    svn co http://trac.aircrack-ng.org/svn/trunk/ aircrack-ng
    make
    make install
    How can I get the latest version of aircrack-ng!

    Sorry for asking such questions but I don't want to mess things up which afterwards may also stop working at all.

    Thank you very much!

    Why not download a fresh copy?

    Is
    Code:
    bt~#airupdate
    a valid command to use?

    Seems to be valid.... "airupdate" didn't work for me but this one worked:
    Code:
    airupdate -h
    Don't know & can't explain why.... however it updated my Aircrack-ng 1.0 rc2 r1377 to Aircrack-ng 1.0 rc2 r1477

    Thanks
