    Default Wireless problem bt5 r3


    As I realized this problem is a common one and several post and toturial a all over the net and this forum going over this, I've tried several and for so many days now but I failed to solve this problem, because of my lack of knowledge in programming in general or backtrack not sure, I would like some help in this pls:

    My backtrack 5 r3 installed on MacBook Pro late 2012 on the hard drive separate partition

    The outcome of the iwconfig is :

    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    Currently am trying to follow the steps on this page but I faild as it is shown in the pic I attached

    What am I doing wrong, or how to solve my wirless problem !? Can't get the wicd network manager to find my wireless network only by wired connection

    Make sure you follow the steps correctly:

    root@bt:~# cd /usr/src/linux
    root@bt:/usr/src/linux# zcat /proc/config.gz > .config

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
    Do not take a look at the: Forum Rules !

    mmmm...You are in your home directory. You need to move to that directory:

    root@bt:~# apt-get dist-upgrade
    root@bt:~# prepare-kernel-sources

    From here, go to /usr/src/linux folder: root@bt:~# cd /usr/src/linux then type <enter>

    Now you are in that directory you need to be in to compile the menuconfig with make (root@bt:/usr/src/linux)

    Then just follow the rest of the wiki as stated:

    root@bt:/usr/src/linux# zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
    root@bt:/usr/src/linux# make menuconfig

    Try it.
