    Default Backtrack Kernel Update

    Is the development team working on a new kernel for backtrack?
    We definatly need to push a new testing kernel for backtrack.

    The main reason is for Wireless.
    In the new kernel version there is more injection support for more drivers, especially the new Alfa cards

    we should build the latest wireless-next-2.6 drivers on the 2.6.34-rc5 kernel
    and patch it with this patch:
    http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/mac80...radiotap.patch

    well this new kernel comes with a few deps
    -CRDA
    -wireless-regdb

    Then we need to update these as well:
    -latest version of iw
    -latest version of wpa_supplicant

    also I think we will need the latest version of GCC (4.5) to compile the kernel

    what you guys think?

    If you cant wait you can always compile a new kernel at your own.
    Me and my brother(FlamingTrojan) have BT4 with kernel 2.6.33.3
