Thanks bringing this program to our attention. Your tutorial inspired me to install Wifi-radar on my laptop running Fedora 4 and it is quite useful.

Are there any non-GUI AP scanners? i.e. one that looks attractive from a terminal? I do not intend to install a GUI on my box.

I tried the install on suse 9.2 with the KDE desktop, I went to the console and when I run
./configure --prefix=/usr

at the end it tels me it can't find atk.pc (ie. the atk package and not the gtk one)

is there some other package I need to install.
I've been messing with this off and on for a couple of days now and can't seem to get it.

errors in running "make" and "makefile"

I tried to install wifi-radar according to procedure but when I was compiling "make" I had an error and I don't remember what it is. Also in doing "makefile" I think the same error occured. make and makefile ran for a while and I think when it was almost finish or almost at the end some error message occured. Do you have any idea or did ever encountered any problem the first time you tried to build it?

please let me know. I really want to have this wifi-radar running on my Slackware 12.

First of all, it would help to have the actual error message you saw, it could many things.

Also the guide to installing Wi-Fi Radar in slackware is pretty dated (2005 in slack 10). You're best best is to try "googling" around the web for more up to date articles or discussions. I haven't tried Wi Fi Radar my self in quite a while, but I'm sure there are plenty of resources out there if you search.

I ran a quick google for "wifi radar slackware 12" and found a few links:

Podcast (looked promising enough)

Also there are alternatives like knetworkmanager which have been improved since the original thread was posted.

Hope that helps. I guess it's better than no reply.
