    Default Laptop freezes while running aircrack for over 40 minutes

    I am running BT2 Live CD on a laptop with 256MB. I have aireplay and airodump and aircrack running, I collect around 500,000 IV's in 30-40 minutes and the the laptop freezes up! Anyone know what can cause this? I have searched for answers here, at aircrack and google, but haven't found any. Any help would be great, thanks.

    Do you have any power saving features enabled? If do..disable them ALL. Also...your not using the wireless assistant are you?? If so....DON'T.

    I bet it is a simple case of you just running out of memory, as it is trying to hold that amount of collected data as well as the OS.

    I disabled all tye power saving features. I think balding parrot may be correct. Would it perform better if I installed BT2 on the hard drive as opposed to the Live CD?

    Definitely. More speed and stability...plus all your downloads and configurations will be saved.

    Now when you say 256MB...are you talking RAM or HD size?? Hopefully your not doing trying this on a 256MD HD!!

    Or you could simply mount a usb stick and save your collected data to there instead...

    Also with a hard drive install you can create a bigger swap space which would solve your memory problem.
