Rtl8187 and driver in Bt3
Hi,i've read most post about driver and patch for rtl8187 and i read the link refer to patch for this device on Aircrack-ng site,but during the installation after doing make appear this error :
bt rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006 # make
rm -f ieee80211/Module.symvers 2>/dev/null

how resolve it?thanks
You obviously did not read anything because if you did you would know that you need the kernel.lzm from the wiki.
Read the readme file, in that directory, don't just do make, do ./makedrv, then ./wlan0up. I bought a card with that chipset just today, and that works for me. However, that only works for every time I install it. I.e., even with saved changes (on usb drive, using the dir2lzm /mnt/live/memory/changes method) I have to re-install it at the start. Is that because of the startup scripts, or is that because I don't have the kernel.lzm? Sorry if that's a silly question, I'm going to look at the kernel now, but I figured I'd ask in case not. But yes, Super_nio, my instructions should work. After that, use airmon-ng to put it in monitor mode.
Just looked at the Kernel on the wiki - it's the same as in BT3 as far as I can tell. Why did you suggest it pureh@te if you don't mind my asking? Am I missing something. And Super_nio, you seem to be using older drivers than me? My folder name is rtl8185_linux_26.1027.0823.2007, and yours is rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006. I guess that's because you're using the 8187 instead of 8185, however, I am using 8185 drivers for my 8187 because they are newer and fairly similar. So try that instead if my previous instructions don't work.
The kernel.lzm contain some of parts that were left out of the bt3 .iso due to space. They are needed for some builds.
Why do you need to patch, all I did was update the aircrack-ng suite, plugged in my 8187 USB stick and everything is working beautifully in BT3.
Is this the same for the USB version though? Because that's what I (and I think Super_nio) are running? The kernel seemed to be the same size.

Little confused. I'm guessing you got it working though? So thats good, whatever you did..
