I found an interesting bootable version of linux. It is a version of RH9, and has the linux-wlan drivers included! It was almost too easy to get tne mn-510 working with kismet.

It takes a little setting up (unlike knoppix-std), but you can save your configuration on a floppy or usb drive to get it to run how you want to.

Here are directions on how to use just about every single command and feature:

Here is where you can find it:

I hope someone else finds it as usefull as me!

I am aware of this, I have never needed to save a configuration with knoppix-std. With this, you do. To get kismet going, it takes some work, you can't just click setup_kismet like you could in std. In knoppix, it boots you right to the desktop. In this distro, you have to set a root password, type setup_x, then startx to get into the GUI. I had to configure my monitor and video card. After that, I had to edit some configuration files to get my wireless card working.

I have been using a modified version of Auditor lately. I will definitely try NSC as a live CD and maybe see what I can add to my setup.

I fired up STD the other day on my Dell 800 with the Truemobile 1150.

It found the card and Kismet fired right up and started sniffing!

Now I just have to figure out how to get it to save somewhere that doesn't go -poof- when the system is shut down.

Mount a SD or CF card and save to that.

That's kind of what I figured, but with almost zero Linux knowledge, I've got some 'learnin' to do. If I type 'mount' I get a list of all the partitions on the HD plus the USB drive that I've plugged in. The device numbers are pretty meaningless to me. It becomes a guessing game as to what device I should mount. I'll figure it out one of these days when I get time.TM :rolleyes:

Renderman told me this, so I'll pass it on... The specifics will vary according to the actual distro.

Insert the card to the appropriate card slot or PCMCIA adapter. Look at the last entry in dmesg. It should be the device name of the card.

For the sake of this exercise, let's assume it is "/dev/sda1" in dmesg.

Now, create the mount point:
Code: Select all
# mkdir /mnt/memcard


and mount the device:
Code: Select all
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/memcard


And you should be ready to read and write to the card.

Thanks, Thorn. I don't know what dmesg is. (Temp file that lists system activity? I'll look it up.) I don't have a SD card or reader, just a USB flash drive. The system seems to find USB devices, though. This is just one of those things that I just have to take the time to learn.
