first before installing aircrack-ng i run:

sudo apt-get install libnl-3-dev
sudo apt-get build-dep aircrack-ng

i downloaded the aircrack-ng 1.2 rc 1 from the aircrack web.

when i try to make i get the next error: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lnl-genl-3

i did have a look at the :

dpkg -l | grep libnl
libnl-3-200:amd64                         3.2.16-0ubuntu1   
libnl-3-dev                               3.2.16-0ubuntu1        
libnl-genl-3-200:amd64                    3.2.16-0ubuntu1             
libnl-route-3-200:amd64                   3.2.16-0ubuntu1             
libnl1:amd64                              1.1-8ubuntu1        

so whats wrong? eitherway i couldnt find /usr/bin/libnl or whatever but there is /etc/libnl-3

here is the verbose from make
