    I was wondering if it was possible to port over something like aircrack-ng for the pre. I know it wouldn't be the best at running attacks against rainbow tables, but should be enough to run wep attacks.

    That is if the wifi card in the Pre even supports injection/monitoring. Anyone know?

    Thanks

    Oh, that'd be cool, I just have no idea how to do it, lol.

    I actually think I sorta know the owner of Linux, or maybe it was Lennox, not sure. A few teachers at my school were talking and mentioned how the owner of Linux had a daughter at our school. I'm just not sure if they said Linux or Lennox, cuz Lennox is also a company. Besides that all I know they are super rich (no, duh).

    Anyway, I hope we can make this idea happen!

    Well Linux is not "owned" by somebody, nor is it a company.

    Linux is a flavor of Operating Systems. Think Windows or Mac OS (or for that matter webOS). webOS is Linux-based.

    The creator of Linux is Linus Torvalds (hence the name Linux).

    WebOS is GNU/Linux based, isn't it?

    Not willing to start a flame war, though...

    [update]I was actually referring to the GNU/Linux naming controversy[/update]

    Oh, sorry.
    Well, I'm still not sure which "creator" or "owner" I know. I know he is from China, cuz his daughter told me.
    So does anyone if either of the companies (or systems, oh god I'm confused!) are chinese?

    I know the major Linux based OS's are RHEL, Debian, and another I cannot think of.

    Then there are the spin offs from those (i.e. CentOS from RHEL, Ubuntu from Debian, webOS is based on Debian).

    There are many flavors of Linux. It would be quite difficult to figure out which one you're talking about specifically.

    Why, yes it is. But my point was that it is based on Linux. Now to get specific, it is based off of OpenEmbedded, though the exact starting point we cannot know.

    I don't want to get in to too many details but pretty much any linux app while run on the Pre (minus a few proprietary ones that weren't compiled for an ARM processor). The down and dirty way to do it is to install a Debian img on your media drive and run apps out of it. Do a few forum searches and you'll find some how-to guides. It's not for the beginner but if you have some time on your hands it's not too bad.

    Actually, it's based on (and built with) OpenEmbedded, which has a Debian flavour but is not based off of Debian.

    To answer the original post, there are over 1300 Linux packages already ported for WebOS. Install the Optware Advanced Linux Command Line Installer in Preware to access them.

    Air-crack will not work cause the proprietary wireless driver on Pre does not support the required mode.

    So does that mean if you get a Linux app you can put on a Pre? Is it hard? Can it mess up your Pre? Is it worth it?

    And, so does this mean I most likely know the Lennox dude, or the Linux dude? Maybe I should just ask the girl when school starts again lol. Well...if I can't find out know I will tell you all next week

    1) with the source code yes
    2) depends on skill level, I ported a library in about 30 minutes... took an hour or two to automate the process
    3) depends on your skill level and what the app does
    4) depends on the app

    5) no comment...

    Lol. No comment? Why not comment? I was just wondering.

    neither Linux Torvalds (the creator but not owner of Linux, Linux is not owned by anyone) nor Todd M. Bluedorn (the CEO and closest thing to "owner" of Lennox International, although Lennox is run by a board of executives and not owned by a person) are from China. Linus is from Finland and Todd is from the USA. Sorry.

    Yeah, I kinda figured as much, but I had to give it a shot! Why can't the pre have a regular rt73 card? lol
