Topic: ipw4965 kernel configuration for BackTrack
Hey. After reading stuff on your site, I have found out that I have a Intel 4965, which supports pacaket injection. Because I have stated using linux about 14 days ago, and thats because I was unnable to connecto to a free hotspot in my favorite restaurant (Nokia n82 detected the access point, but my notebook did not) and that pissed me off. But I liked I was successfull with Linux. An all the sudden I come across you website and read all about the great things I could do :-). Anyways, if I go step by step trough the things I do not understand, I need to know what "kernel preparation" means to advance futher.
"Make sure that that this is in your kernel configuration. Pay special attention to the modules that are included and those that can be attached."
Networking -> Wireless : [M] Improved wireless configuration API [*] nl80211 new netlink interface support [*] Wireless extensions [M] Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (mac80211) [M] Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (DEPRECATED) [M] IEEE 802.11 WEP encryption (802.1x) [M] IEEE 802.11i CCMP support [M] IEEE 802.11i TKIP encryption [M] Software MAC add-on to the IEEE 802.11 networking stack
Where am I supposed to do that? In Synaptic? I had Hardy 8.04 before annd now have 8.10, so maybe I dont have to do some of the things that were needed in previous versions….hmm?
Thanks alot for every hint you will give me.
