    Post Asus Eee PC + BT3 Final - Quickstart guide

    After rolling around for a while on my SD-booted BT3 installation without persistant changes, I'm pretty decent at the BT3 + Eee PC quickstart. Here are my notes for getting Karma and Airsnarf up and running once you've got BT3 booting from an SD or USB device.


    # Karma: directions: (1) select Karma from menu,
    # (2) apply three fixes, (3) put the card into monitor mode
    # and (4) run the scripts

    # fix 1: fix bad udev
    sudo nano ./modules/servers/AccessPoint.module.xml
    # fix all the paths for iwpriv, ifconfig etc.
    # get rid of /usr/ in /usr/bin/udev
    # ctrl-x to exit, type "y" and save with given write path

    # fix 2: fix Asus Eee bind error
    sudo nano ./bin/karma
    # add sleep(2) before the end of the
    # function that says "#run modules now"
    # ctrl-x to exit, type "y" and save with given write path

    # fix 3: fix HttpServers module
    sudo nano ./modules/servers/HttpServer/module.xml
    # change line that starts "redirect = @mod.options['redirect']"
    # replace with multi-line (no quotes):
    # "redirect = @mod.options['redirect']
    # if redirect.nil?
    # redirect="/controller/"
    # end"

    # set monitor mode or master mode
    # master mode is for fake AP; monitor mode is used in discovery
    # don't worry about running ./bin/
    wlanconfig ath0 destroy
    wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
    # (monitor: wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode monitor)

    # if you use the run command with the interface attached,
    # you shouldn't have to modify the xml files
    # type sudo nano ./etc/karma.xml to change that
    # and the SSID of the fake AP
    ./bin/karma ./etc/karma.xml ath0
    # scan: ./bin/karma ./etc/karma-scan.xml ath0


    # Airsnarf directions: (1) select Airsnarf from BT menu, (2) clean house,
    # (3) set rogue interface; (4) create rogue interface,
    # (5) create monitor interface, and (6) run Airsnarf

    sudo kwrite ./cfg/airsnarf.cfg
    # set ROGUE INTERFACE = ath1
    # (or the correct interface)

    # if anything is up, use "wlanconfig athX destroy"
    wlanconfig ath0 destroy

    wlanconfig ath1 wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
    # it should confirm with "ath1"

    wlanconfig ath0 wlandev wifi0 wlanmode monitor
    # it should confirm with "ath0"

    # run Airsnarf

    Shouldn't this be in Tutorials & Guides or Howtos?
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Please feel free to move it around to wherever it will do the most good. Thanks

    I have tried for months to get both airsnarf and karma to run on eeepc without success with a lot of much appreciated help. Spotted your guide on airsnarf and thought just what I am looking for, still no success. I have eeepc with BT3 on sd card.

    1 Do you have to create both ath0 & ath1?

    2 Should your instruction read wlanconfig ath1 create wlanmode etc

    3 airsnarf tells me there's already a DHCP server running

    4 message httpd: Could not reliably determine the servers fully qualified domain name using

    5 Setting up listening sockets for for

    6 Creating TCP socket for - done

    7 Creating UDP socket for - done

    8 Waiting for connections.

    should items 5 - 7 have a valid ip address?

    Will try your karma guide another time. Any ideas as what I am doing wrong with air snarf?
    many thanks
