    Talking Bt3 = slax

    Hello Again...

    Was just wondering if anyone new were I could download...

    The BT3 " AR5007G Driver "
    With Backtrack 3 my WI-FI Card works out of the box...
    With BT2 I had to mission, and never got it right...

    So since BT3 is made from SLAX, I was going to make my own version...

    But I can seem to get my wi-fi working again....

    So if any Ideas occur, please feel free to comment on the topic...

    Else I think im going to have to go threw the trouble of searching threw the BT3 /BASE/ Folder ... " LZM2DIR " But I wouldn't know what to look for dough...

    if I'm thinking correctly, Slax is another distro...

    Slackware is what bt3 is built on.... getting those 2 confused could cause problems...

    You're not thinking correctly, well, not quite correctly anyway. Slax is built off of Slackware, Back|Track is built off Slax.
    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

    I had the same issue with my Atheros card. Anyways I solved the problem by installing a special version of madwifi. I really don't have time to give you the link, but you can easily search for it. The normal madwifi driver wouldn't work for me, but the special version worked flawlessly which BT3 has it as you can see. Good Luck

    The latest Madwifi drivers work as long as you patch it with the 3745 patch from Aircrack - I have no problems using my Atheros card and BT3 or Slackware 12.1

    Code:
     ifconfig ath0 down
     ifconfig wifi0 down
     svn -r 3745 checkout hxxp svn[dot]madwifi[dot]org/madwifi/trunk/ madwifi-ng
     wget hxxp patches[dot]aircrack-ng[dot]org/madwifi-ng-r3745.patch
     cd madwifi-ng
     patch -Np1 -i ../madwifi-ng-r3745.patch
     ./scripts/madwifi-unload
     make
     make install
     depmod -ae
     modprobe ath_pci
    The above was taken from the Aircrack site and use the r3745 SVN release but I'm using the latest Madwifi drivers, patched with the r3745 patch from Aircrack-ng, on Slackware 12.1 current with no issues.

    vintage: just wanted to say, that worked like a charm, I'm glad I read this, as 2days ago I tried upgrading to the latest madwifi-ng drivers, but something just didn't seem 'right', now I notice according to yr instructions and per aircrack's website it says to use the "-r 3745" flag when pulling madwifi-ng via svn... I assume this means to grab revision 3745, when applying the patch, it worked great today.

    2 days ago tho, I didn't use the "-r 3745" flag and things didn't seem to play out so well (thankfully I backed things up and was able to revert to my original madwifi install - then read yr post and said patch applied the svn revision 3745 and things worked fine);

    this is what things looked like when I didn't use the "-r 3745" flag ;
    > svn checkout hxxp svn [dot] madwifi [dot] org/madwifi/trunk/ madwifi-ng
    [...] [...] [...]
    Checked out external at revision 3868.
    Checked out revision 3868.
    > patch -Np1 -i ../madwifi-ng-r3745.patch
    Hunk #1 succeeded at 3000 (offset 50 lines).
    Hunk #3 succeeded at 3038 (offset 50 lines).
    I am just curious why we should be checking out revision 3745 when rev 3868 is available? Is it because the aircrack provided patch only works PROPERLY with 3745? I just want to understand the WHY, as the above shows, it sure seems like that madwifi-ng-r3745.patch would work fine, since the patch took... ?

    mind elaborating for me? purtty please

    peace-
