    Where's the dictionary file?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Also how big is the password file? Some applications can't handle files larger than 2GB.
    I like the bleeding edge, but I don't like blood loss

    nevermind, im stupid i shouldve tried using the root as a path which is what genpmk required i jus assumed that genpmk didnt require it since airolib doesnt so all i had to do was:
    genpmk -d createhash -f /root/dict.lst -s network
    and it worked just fine. Is it just me or does airolib work alot faster, it took all night almost for genpmk to computer one essid with 300 thousand passwords yet it only took airolib like 10 mins or does genpmk do something that aiolib doesnt?
