    Post Problem with installing wireless driver

    Hi everyone, my laptop has an Intel 2200 chipset and I'm running Backtrack4 in a hard drive partition. I was trying to install the ieee80211-1.2.17 driver from aircrack-ng so that afterwards I could install the ipw2200 driver to allow for packet injection. The point is, I screwed up at some point, I had to do it again and now when I try to install this driver I get this:

    root@bt:~tar zxvf ieee80211-1.2.17.tar.gz
    root@bt:~cd ieee80211-1.2.17
    root@bt:~/ieee80211-1.2.17# sudo make

    I know that if I had to do it now I wouldn't screw up again, but the first time I tried I did something wrong and now I have to undo it before I can install the patch. I'm a big unix noob but this seems to be a really simple error, I tried the aircrack-ng forums but I'm not able to post there, so I hope someone could help me here.

    Someone correct me if im wrong but doesn't bt4 already come with the proper driver for his card.
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    I can't tell you either way, but I would think the first thing to try would be that the OP actually read the error message and, at the least, try to set the shell to /bin/bash. It probably won't correct the error loop, but it should at least eliminate the possibility.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    There is your error. Now take that and work with it. If it still does not work then report the error here in this thread.

    I would also encourage you to start with the basics first before trying to crack your neighbors wep key, or whatever.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    I DID set the the shell to /bin/bash, I still get an error. I do know how to crack WEP, and I do know some of the basics, I'm not a complete noob. My only problem was with the installation of this module, I know backtrack already had support for this but I had to install this version so I could afterwards install the patch for IPW2200 injection. I could easily do it from the start, but since a made a slight mistake in the first place now I don't know how to go back. The main problem here I think is the file system loop, it makes the install go all wrong.
