Exclamation Installed Backtrack 3 and Booting On my Acer Laptop, Aircrack-ng crashes?


Heyy All Newbies, and Member's

I'd appreciate it if my problem is solved because i've been trying to solve it for weeks now,lol.

So i have a Acer laptop, and have succesfully downloaded backtrack (linux distrubution) and all is booting and functioning to a reasonable extent. However the only problem i am facing is when i open the shell konsole, and type "aircrack-ng", my laptop just freezes for 5 seconds, and i get a blank screen, and then backtrack 3 loads up again from the start, bringing me back to square one.

any suggestions or advice
Pleasee help me.

Any suggestions amani? or ani other newbie or member?

thanks in advance
appreciated

Red face wohooo solved the problem

All i did was decided to do a roll back, go back to Backtrack 2, so i did now everything runs twice as fast, and i can run aircrack, i like the way the aircrack folder is inside radio network analysis, it was hard to find that in backtrack 3 because the folder wasnt visible

Backtrack 2 all the wayy woohooo:P
