    Default wordlist not working with aircrack-ng

    I downloaded two different wpa-psk wordlist from g0tm1lk site, but when I used them with aircrack-ng, it tells me that the wordlist is empty. I read the whole post, and it says that the links on the right are clean wordlist; however, something is off because aircrack thinks they are empty.... anyone tried those list? or know why the error?
    here's the link to wordlist http://g0tmi1k.blogspot.com/2011/06/...wordlists.html

    Try a 'less <filename>' to see if the wordlist actually contains words.
    And perhaps the format of the file is corrupted, with ^M or such.

    Just to check, you are extracting the wordlist first before you use aircrack with the file?

    yes, the wordlist is not empty, and yes, I decompressed the whole file. One wpa list is about 13G and the other one is about 7G, and none are empty..... the post says they are clean. Meaning no html tags, no duplicate, etc; however, aircrack-ng gives error: "empty wordlist use option -w" you guys could try it, if this wordlist work with aircrack-ng, it would be a good thing as 13G should be a pretty good list.

    Well that all depends on the processing power doesn't it?

    Aircrack can only manage files with a max size of 2GB, so you need to split the file up into more smaller files.
    See my older post here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ist-files.html

    No I wouldn't really say that it does considering the fact that when using aircrack your "processing power" is already limited to cpu. Unless he has some crazy insane cpu, I'd say he would be in for a painfully long and boring process... even with 2 gb wordlist files.

    Can you post the exact command you are using?

    Aircrack can only manage files with a max size of 2GB
    I've used aircrack with 5+ GB airolib database though, is it different when using a wordlist (-w) ?
