As a previous pdaXrom user I'm trying out the latest version of GPE on my C3000. There is much about it that I like, it is clear and fast and comes with many of my favourite security apps such as dsniff and driftnet. However, and sorry if there are lots of questions here:

Why wont Kismet work with my Ambicom wireless card? In kismet.conf I've set the source=hostap,eth0,hostapsource.

Is there an easy way to store different wireless profiles? I want one called "home" and one called "train" for using the Wireless on the trains and one for RF Monitor mode sniffing. pdaXrom made this very easy and I cant believe you have to go into a GUI to redefine the settings for eth0 every time you connect to a different network.

Has anybody got bluetooth to a GPRS phone working?

Is there a version of ethereal or even tethereal?

Has anybody tried running debian under GPE ? (this would enable me to get my missing apps)

Can I install X11 packages from pdaXrom feeds? I know they still use the older kernel so is there backward compatability?

On a lighter note,
Why does supertux not run?
Are there versions of frozen-bubble and tuxpaint?

Thanks in advance for any help.

To answere a couple of my own questions,

Wifi profiles can be setup
http://wiki.openzaurus.org/HowTos/WifiMultipleProfiles

and ethereal appeared in the feed in the last few days and appears to work just fine. Thanks.

I installed multi-aterm and it works like a charm, although OZ is missing some fonts so the displayed font is smaller but it works nicely otherwise.

not all packages will work because oz is lacking certain libraries

Which ones? Let us know and we can see what we need to add, or point to you to the correct package to install.

I'm re-installing my apps to an SD card as there is not much space in root but this is taking a very long time (slower memory?) and I'm taking care to do an ipkg-link add for each package. Here is what I get when I try to run kismet. Has anybody got kismet working or is there a version of wellenreiter? There must be some way for GPE users to sniff out wireless networks!

Is there GPE version of kismet? I think it's only a QT app.

I dont think so. Kismet is a console application so it shouldnt matter which GUI is being run. I do recall trying a previous version of GPE and I'm sure Kismet ran on that. I've now tried an oder version from the GPE feeds but still no luck, and I cant get the pdaXrom version to install, GPE keeps trying to upgrade it.

So I'm stuck! I cant even get the prsimstumbler/aeriel programs to work. Has anybody got wireless network sniffing working in any way?

I've found that copying the airodump binary from the aircrack suite to /usr/bin/ on the Z appears to work.Remove the .txt extension if you want to use it.

airodump eth0 /dev/null

This shows that all the low-level stuff is working fine, I'm just disappointed that all the GUI s seem not to work. My only problem with airodump is that it over-wrap the terminal window. Is there a way to add a horizontal scroll bar to the terminal window?

I will continue to try to find a more usable solution for sniffing out wireless network as the rest of GPE is very nice indeed!

Thanks Meanie, I've had trouble with some of the packages but by changing the .ipk to a .gz and unzipping them I can copy the binaries which appear to work nicely.

Multi-aterm is a very handy app. Do you know if there is any way to change the font sizes, they are just a little small for my eyesight.

I conclude that the ipk in the feed is just rubbish.

However, the ipk from the pdaXrom feed can be made to work and it does work beatifully! http://mail.pdaxrom.org/download/1.1.0beta...r1_armv5tel.ipk Download it and change the ipk extension to gz and uncompress it . Then uncompress the "data" file and copy the files within it to the /usr/bin, /usr/etc and /usr/share directories on the Zaurus respectively.

There are one or two more tricks to make it run.
Kismet must be run from a non-root account. You can make one using adduser. Mine is called auditor. So, I must run kismet from /home/auditor. I have an Ambicom CF card so I edit /usr/etc/kismet.conf:

suiduser=auditor
source=hostap,eth0,hostapsource

Works like magic! If anybody can tell me how to make an ipk that installs on OZ then I'll be happy to package it all up. Enjoy!

Could you add a bug for that to the OE bugtracker then please.

Also attach your error output, etc.

the kismet package from the upgrades feed is broken since being linked to _two_ different c++ libs instead of just one. i put a notice in the 3.5.4.x upgrades thread to ask hrw to rebuild it. in the meantime you can use my homebuilt kismet package located here. this is only temporary till the package in the official upgrades feed is fixed...

EDIT: this is now fixed in the upgrades feed, thanks hrw!
