  1. Downloaded the compat-wireless source into /usr/src, but when I go into the directory to run make I get this error. I googled it and the common response to it was to install kernel headers (which I did). Anyone have any ideas? $ sudo make ~/compat_wireless_make_error.txt /bin/sh: line 0: test: -le: unary operator expected /bin/sh: line 0: test: -ge: unary operator expected /bin/sh: line 0: test: -le: unary operator expected /bin/sh: line 0: test: -le: unary operator expected /bin/sh: line 0: test: -le: unary operator expected make: Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time 4e+04 s in the future make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [modules] Error 2
  2. I need to see what driver my FC10 box is using to see if some other software will work properly. How can I get this information?
  3. it needs 4GB and then some, so if possible, get a different OS or bigger HDD. This is impossible. The eee has a ~3800MB hard drive. It's saying I need 3070MB, which is ~800mb less than what I have available. Since I _need_ the 2.6.29 or better kernel, and other distros (IE ubuntu) don't use it yet,I have to use fedora.
  4. When I try and install FC11 from the liveCD image on my Eee PC, I get the following message: However, my eee pc has a 4GiB flash HD. While small, this is slightly larger than the number the installer gives. The preview release installed fine. Is there anything I can do? (IE tweak the installer to not install extraneous stuff?) I trying wiping the whole thing with gparted from the live enviornment and making one FAT32 partition, but still get the error. I mean, yes you lose a BIT of storage when going from GiB to GB, but still there should be plenty of space. (After all, I have less ram than HD space... if the Live image boots, then it should install!) Arghhhh.
  5. That command (rpm -ql `rpm -qa | grep kernel-2.6`) didn't work. The output of rpm -qa | grep kernel; ls -l /usr/src/; uname -a is: ernel- kernel-headers- kernel-firmware- kerneloops-0.12-5.fc11.i586 total 2736 drwxr-xr-x. 7 1000 1000 4096 2009-06-07 18:53 compat-wireless-2.6.30-rc6 -rwxr-xr-x. 1 songwhale songwhale 1678784 2009-06-07 18:48 compat-wireless-2.6.30-rc6.tar.bz2 drwxrwxr-x. 5 root root 4096 2009-03-23 10:06 hostapd-0.6.9 -rwxr-xr-x. 1 songwhale songwhale 1089548 2009-06-07 18:48 hostapd-0.6.9.tar.gz drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 2009-03-04 08:13 kernels drwxrwxr-x. 4 root root 4096 2009-01-30 15:39 wireless-regdb-2009.01.30 -rwxr-xr-x. 1 songwhale songwhale 11515 2009-06-07 18:48 wireless-regdb-2009.01.30.tar.bz2 Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP Mon Apr 20 15:18:57 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux thanks for the help
  6. By making the directory manually I now get this error: [root@localhost compat-wireless-2.6.30-rc6]# make /bin/sh: line 0: test: -ge: unary operator expected make -C /lib/modules/ M=/usr/src/compat-wireless-2.6.30-rc6 modules make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/' make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop. make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/' make: *** [modules] Error 2 Also I feel I should mention I've already tried installing kernel headers and the source rpm (the two most common solutions I found on google)
  7. Note: I have installed the kernel headers and kernel source rpm already, with no change in the error output.
  8. Jump in the shell and use the locate command. Thanks. I discovered the "problem" was that the wireless drivers were not in fact located in the kernel source. I found the right directory (compat wireless tree), applied the patch, and now am trying to compile the change. So I go up a directory to the main compat-wireless folder, and run make, and I get this error: $ sudo make /bin/sh: line 0: test: -ge: unary operator expected make -C /lib/modules/ M=/usr/src/compat-wireless-2.6.30-rc6 modules make: *** /lib/modules/ No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [modules] Error 2
  9. So I'm trying to path some driver code in fedora. I downloaded a source rpm and ran rpm -i (kernel rpm filename). However I have _no clue_ where it put the source files, and thus can't apply my patch. Anyone know how I can make rpm tell me where it put the files? (I think I've been a bit spoiled by finder's search, without a workable search I have no clue how to find my way around the filesystem)
  10. OMG, your member number, 13361, is kinda 1337..

  11. Thanks, I didn't realize there was an attack that didn't need associated clients. Second result on google lays it out step by step: At least I don't have to fret something's wrogn on my end now. Thanks again!
  12. My friend is on vacation. I jokingly asked him if I should hack his network and change the name to something insulting. He thought this would be funny, so we drew up some ground rules and made it into a little bet. Anyways, basically, I cannot enter his property. (Not really an issue, I share a wall with him) If I can change the router (SSID, pass, etc) I win. Now this SHOULD be easy, since he's using WEP. So I found a nice tutorial on aircrack, everything was going smoothly, but when I start to do the part where I should be spoofing arp packets, none are being spoofed, because apparently none are being intercepted. (Currently the terminal says 0 arp requests and 0 acks, and that I've read ~1800000 packets.) Now from what I've read a client needs to be associated for this attack to work - could it be the case that if no one is in his apt and thus no one is connected to the AP the attack will fail? Or are their other issues that could cause this? (Step four of this document: is where I'm stuck.) So basically, am I fucked? Or could an issue other than no clients being associated be causing me to see all this traffic but no ARP packets? Edit: In case it isn't abundantly clear: _I have permission to mess with my neighbor's connection._
  13. Actually that's how I typed it (just mistyped it when typing my post) I think it's a port forwarding issue... (I had to enable port forwarding on port 22 and port 8080 in my wrt54gl's set up screen to even be able to remotely login to ssh. However even with these ports enabled for forwarding for both the netbook and the macbook, while I can SSH in and do command lione stuff, the proxy doesn't work (same error as OP). And yes, I do intend to use passwordless authentication eventually. At this point I want as few points of failure before I add complexity (passwordless auth, iptables rules to limit logins/block repeat offenders etc)
  14. So I got a new netbook, and decided to start using my old macbook as a secure server. The plan was to use SSH as a SOCKS proxy. So I went in to system preferences, enabled remote login. (Even made a special account called "ssh" that was the only one with this privilege to be secure and gave it a nice long password) When I initially tryed to SSH in from the netbook (using the command "ssh -D ssh@[iP-REDACTED] 8080" like this tutorial explains:, Anyways, even though I theoretically am doing everything right (enabling port forwarding, sshing in before turning on the foxyproxy filter, etc) I get a connection refused error. At first I couldn't even SSH into the macbook, but after I went into my WRT54GL's settings and enabled port forwarding for port 8080 and port 22. This allowed me to log in via SSH like the tutorial I found said. But when I actually try and set up Foxyproxy to use the ssh tunnel, all the webpages give an error stating "Connection Inturrupted: The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading". Browsing without the proxy works fine. I can browse via lynx, ping, etc from the command line SSH connection. Why won't the proxy work?
