- Create the partition and flag it as Linux Swap. Let's say you make it at hda3.
- Prepare it: mkswap -c /dev/hda3
- Activate it: swapon /dev/hda3
- If you do a fresh Backtrack HD install it will find and use swap.
- Else edit /etc/fstab and add the line: /dev/hdb2 swap swap default 0 0.
- Stations with several essids usually mean an evil hacker is hanging around. Beware as they might be armed.
- Try killing the wireless device and creating it again. It works with my atheros based card.
- There are also problems in channel hopping when two devices are being used for the same card at the same time. If ath0 is a station, connected to a single channel and ath1 is monitoring multichannel, most likely the card will get confused and get blocked.. somehow (out of my comprehension).
wlanconfig ath0 destroy
wlanconfig ath0 create wladev wifi0 wlanmode mon
That's all the help I can give. Anyway I think it would be interesting and useful if you gave an idea of what your machine is made of, as there might be known bugs (p.e: KDE crash) that a more knowledgeable member can point out.
