#603 closed defect (fixed)

aireplay not working with madwifi-ng (aircrack - aircrack-ng)

Reported by: nou Owned by: florian
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version:
Keywords: Cc:


default shell with openwrt is ash/busybox which doesn't like &>/dev/null at all.
And aireplay is using a system call to check if ath0raw exists. something like this: "sysctl -w dev.%s.rawdev_type=1 &>/dev/null"

A possible fix would be to replace all the "sysctl -w dev.%s.rawdev_type=1 &>/dev/null" by "sysctl -nw dev.%s.rawdev_type=1 2>/dev/null" (two occurences in aireplay-ng.c)

hope that helps.

no -nw is not a good idea since sysctl seems to always return 0 in that case
-n -w neither since it prints something
can't be arsed to make a cleaner change :)
