How to install Pyrit.


Recommended Posts


I have installed wifite on pineapple and discovered that it also needs tshark/cowpaty and Pyrit.

After I download pyrit and run "python setup.py build", I get this message after a while:

"unable to execute mips-openwrt-linux-uclibc-gcc: No such file or directory
error: command 'mips-openwrt-linux-uclibc-gcc' failed with exit status 1"

How do I get pass this?

Reason why I want use wifite and it's dependencies is because I want capture wpa handshake and properly validate it with pyrit.

I have not yet tried to install tshark and cowpatty, but I assume that thos can be installed on pineapple?

One more question.

Upon installing pyrit trough OPKG manager, I get a "Installing, configuring Pyrit" message,
this message never dissapears.

So I reboot after an hour or so, when logging in again OPKG says additional package has bin installed, but how do I actually run pyrit, all I get in command line is:

root@Apple:/bin# pyrit
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/sd/usr/bin/pyrit", line 4, in <module>
import pyrit_cli
ImportError: No module named pyrit_cli

You probably need to install pyrit_cli as well from opkg.


opkg install pyrit_cli

Or if that doesn't exist use:

opkg find pyrit

to see all packages that have the word pyrit in them and install the appropriate one.


I've noticed the opkg manager infusion always stops at the last line of output without displaying any message of success. I just install packages through the command line because it ends up being easier.
