Ok...I have the broadcom 4311 Mini-PCI card on a compaq Presario F500...I'm just trying to get injection working on it (frankly, because I don't have the cash to drop on a new card that will actually work)...and I've tried everything I can find on the forums, on the net, through Google, etc...and I get nothing...so I've resigned to trying the b43 / b43 legacy drivers on a newer kernel, however, I'm having extreme difficulty trying to compile a new kernel using the config file from this kernel in BT3 Final, nor from a scratch kernel. Can anyone give me any pointers on where/how to start this process? Or am I just shooting in the dark again? Thanks all.
Heh...yeah, I know about the lilo config and first kernel thing...been there TOO MANY TIMES. Yeesh...don't want to go there again...well the truth is, I've got BT3 final on my HD, and I do use make menuconfig, however, I didn't know about the "h" command for help (of course, I'm willing to bet that if I read just a little more into it......), nonetheless, using lspci, dmesg, and lsmod will help me a lot in building a custom kernel for my machine. I'm just wondering if the b43 drivers will actually work once I get it finally finished and loaded. BTW, Pureh@te, you rock bro. Thanks for all your help!
The 4th link is updated pathes for the 2.6.28 kernel but the author says they are untested.
the first link goes for ubuntu but I'm amusing if you use the kernel they mention and the 2 patches you should be good to go.
Every thing I've read so far says that with the 2 patches you should be able to inject.
I am having so many problems trying to get the stinkin thing built, it fails on my everytime at something called xt_DSCP.c ...unfortunately, I don't know enough about kernel hacking (read: anything at all) to make that work past that...it's like what a friend of mine told me when we were discussing this whole Broadcom issue...he said: "You must hate your life right now." Yeah...I certainly do. LOL. Thanks for the info Pure...I'll keep doing something, somehow...
Well, I found the actual drivers from Broadcom, wl.ko, I'm going to see if these will actually do any injection on my network...figure if I can knock my wife's laptop off the wireless and then grab the auth packet, then I'll be good to go...should be interesting...wish me luck.
Are you starting from a fresh build or are you trying to use the bt3 .config?
You should really start fresh with a vanilla kernel and get it booting with the bare minimum of stuff and the add things one section at a time. Plus in your situation you should be creating a error log for debugging. When I start from scratch I get it booting then work on sound, then networking, then drivers, and so on... much easier to know WTF went wrong that way.
