Recommended Posts

I have backtrack 5 and i installed airdrop-ng like i have many times before, and there was no problem at all.

Then when i came to start airdrop-ng i was greeted by the following message:

File "/usr/bin/airdrop-ng", line 799

class getTargets():

^

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Does anyone have any idea whats going on and maybe a solution to the problem. I have looked all over the internet and theses forums but have not found the answer so i hope that someone here can help, thanks

Not sure why you had to "install" it, it is already stock on BT5

cd /pentest/wireless/aircrack-ng/scripts/airdrop-ng

./airdrop-ng

Yes thats true, but since i installed the kde 64 version of backtrack 5 on my new laptop airdrop-ng wont load, it just keeps saying:

File "/usr/bin/airdrop-ng", line 799

class getTargets():

^

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

everytime i try and stat it. So i uninstalled it and reinstalled it just to double check and still the problem persists

If its a true persistent bug, report it to the bt sites bug tracker. Also, be sure to tell them all the details, what OS(bt5 vs bt5 r1), hardware, chipset, wifi model, etc. Someone else might already have the same issue and found a fix for it. Search the bug tracker to see if its in there before submitting it though: http://redmine.backtrack-linux.org:8080/

Try installing GNOME

Mine is GNOME and works fine. The KDE didn't even boot for me, I think there is lots of issues with the KDE one. And all the pen-testers I see use GNOME vs KDE version.

I have recently made the switch because everyone says gnome is better than kde. Your right, i have no problems with airdrop now and even airpwn1.4 is working and as you seen my other post about sslstrip - thats now working for me as well
