I'm trying to run airmon-ng on centonts 5.8 server (command line only). I have an atheros AR2425 wireless device (ath5k) that shows up as wlan0. If I do:
# airmon-ng start wlan0
ERROR: Neither the sysfs interface links nor the iw command is available.
Please download and install iw from
I downloaded iw-0.9.19.tar.bz2 but when I run make I get:
iw.c:11:31: error: netlink/genl/genl.h: No such file or directory.
I also tried iw.tar.bz2 but that gave the same error. I have both libnl and libnl-devel installed.
How can I get this installed?
