Hi everyone,

Hope your all well ;-)

OK - want to do a few things with my collie:

a) want to run aircrack-ng with packet injection
cool.gif want kernel headers for kernel:


c) need gcc 2.95.3 20010315 (or above) installed on 5500 to compile a required modification
to hostap drivers, which involves compiling with the kernel.

this is why, this is what aircrack-ng say:

Nearly all drivers (that can support injection) needs to be patched to support injection in Monitor mode.
You will need the following to compile drivers:

Linux kernel headers that match your current running kernel.
The same gcc version that was used to compile your kernel. At least make sure that the first two version numbers or the compiler are thesame (e.g. it's OK to use gcc 3.4.6 to compile the driver if the kernel was compiled by gcc 3.4.2). Ignoring this rule will cause Invalid module format errors during module load. That can be checked via /proc/version.

so, to recap, I need gcc 2.95.3 20010315 (or above) installed, and 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix-3.5.4 kernel headers.

If anyone has a working copy of the aircrack-ng suite working on a SL-5500, can I copy your installation ? - perhaps you would be
kind enough to make a zImage and an initrid.bin of your installation ? - this would save me a whole pile of problems, as I am
new to Linux. I would also like to learn how to make those 2 files.

If not, I need a feed source to download the needed software - does anyone have any links or recommendations ? do you have old copies
of that software ? - can you send me a copy ?

please feel free to email me here at: allelectrix2@yahoo.co.uk

I know gcc is a big installation, so, if you have cramfs files that will run gcc 2.95.3 20010315 (or above) from an SD Card
im definitely interested in that. if not, can someone teach me how to install gcc from a tarball and then make a cramfs of it ?

look forward to your replies ;-)

all the best to you all, allelectrix
