Installing Aircrack-ng on Ubuntu 12.04

The recent ubuntu 12.04 cut out aircrack-ng from their repository. So here is an easy step by step guild to get it installed again

 Anyway, Riyaz Ahemed Walikar has written a post on gettin aircrack work in Precise Pangolin.

apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev
wget http://download.aircrack-ng.org/aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz
tar -zxvf aircrack-ng-1.1.tar.gz
cd aircrack-ng-1.1
gedit common.mak

Replace the line

CFLAGS ?= -g -W -Wall -Werror -O3


CFLAGS ?= -g -W -Wall -O3

Then save it and close gedit

sudo make install

Then your all done.

I hope you have fun security testing your wireless devices
