Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I found directions on this site, on how to do this, but it won't work for me.
The Echo i get is a Syntax Error

I used the commands, that came with these directions as followed:

  1. You need to install libpcap*-dev first: sudo apt-get install libpcap*-dev
  2. Extract the tar file, then from the terminal: cd /path/to/src
  3. The use the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr
sudo make install

After I typed make it said [libwps.o] Error 2. Then when I typed sudo make install, it said install error 1.

From my Terminal for the source of reaver 1.4 issued the following:

make clean   
sudo make install

Note the lack of the prefix flag.
