    Default Compiled fixes that you might need.

    Now remember you have to be able to save changes for all of this to help;

    I have taken the time to compile some fixes that seem to be asked. I hope this helps.
    I have also tried to make it easy to understand for you that are just starting out , like I am.
    I have made step by step commands, so hopefully your time with BackTrack is much more fun.
    The forum here to me has been a life saver. All the things below have come from this very forum, so they get all the Credit.

    Fix Kismet
    Open a terminal window and edit: /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf

    (you can use whatever editor you want: vi, kwrite, etc)

    Find the line:
    and replace it with:
    *Note wif0 is for ath0, put whatever card you have there.

    Save kismet.conf (ctrl+x in nano). You will now need to start kismet from the terminal (rather than the K / Backtrack menu) by typing:

    Purhates Video for making a USB **EXCELLENT**

    This forum has been excellent to me so I compiled some of the fixes i did.
    I want to help with what i can to give back. I hope this will help some of you.

    I will add more as I can think of them.

    Fasttrack will update a lot of those things to the current version. Kismet has its own svn update script in the /pentest/svn directory. There is no need to update wireless ass. because it sucks and I don't forsee it getting much better.
