Hi All;


In an earlier post I asked about the modules required by Bluetooth an WiFi. As you can tell from my email address,

I am not a 14 yr old hacker J

Not really sure why this comment was needed? Or if a crack towards me?


What I am attempting to do is install aircrack-ng on an Overo Earth. That is why I need to know about the WiFi support.

Using “opkg get install”, I managed to install the aircrack software. However, I have to patch the driver and possibly black list

the ieee80211 driver. For this reason I need to know how to install WiFi and Bluetooth as MODULES and not as part of the kernel.


I am using an Alpha AWUS306H USB WiFi adapter which uses the Realtek RTL8187L chipset and driver. There are instructions on the

Aircrack WiKi on how to do this. But I need to know how to know how to properly build the kernel …


Hopefully NOW, someone can help me. Either on or off list …

All I did was build the kernel with the normal recipe and just went into menuconfig and built what I needed as modules. I installed my wifi driver from source and patched, made sure to put openssl-dev files on the image and sqlite-dev. Then just built it all on my overo directly. Really was no different than doing it all from source on a normal nix dist. Was there an issue you had in building or did injection fail? I also do not use the opkg install aircrack, compile from source. Did you try enabling mac80211 as a mod and not even building ieee? If you need more help let me know whats not working, feel like part of it is missing?
