maybe i should also elaborate on my post, i already looked in the patches directory on aircrack's site and at most other related posts on this forum as well as on the gentoo forums and on google, so while yes your right in saying there's been nothing posted here in ages this seemed to have the most conversation relating to the issue i was searching for, my reply was not intended as an insult either btw, i guess i was just hopeful there might be someone here that had some more recent news on the drivers for this card as there's no injection use flag in my distro of choice (gentoo) and no option in the kernel to provide injection support and these kernels you guys use here are considereably older than the one im using, i havent looked at backtrack in some time now as have no need for livecd's as my current setup consists of only linux pc's
