The “Slitaz Aircrack-ng Distribution” is the base Slitaz cooking version plus the latest Aircrack-ng SVN version, wireless drivers patched for injection and other related tools. The custom distribution is especially tuned for the Acer Aspire One netbooks but will work well on virtually all desktops, notebooks and netbooks. It is extremely small (50meg), requires minimal memory and includes a rich set of programs.
This distribution is not intended to be all things to all people. Especially with respect to patched wireless drivers. Only a limited set of patched wireless drivers are included. If you own a card which uses one of these patched drivers then you are in luck. These are for cards which are personally owned and are known to work well. There are no plans to expand this list. If your particular card is not included then use Back Track which includes an exceedingly large number of patched drivers.

The foundation is SliTaz which is a free micro GNU/Linux distro using BusyBox, a Linux kernel, and GNU free software. The goal of SliTaz is to have a GNU/Linux distro working in memory (RAM). Installable to a hard disk, with good support for French language web, it offers reliability, high performance and PC recycling. SliTaz boots with Syslinux and provides more than 200 Linux commands, the LightTPD web server, SQLite database, rescue tools, IRC client, SSH client/server powered by Dropbear, X window system, JWM (Joe's Window Manager), gFTP, Geany IDE, Mozilla Firefox, Alsaplayer, Gparted, a sound file editor and much more.
Summary of What Is Included:
There are some custom scripts which can be run from the command line:
To view the above, type “less /etc/motd.full” at the command line.
If you login and type “startx” it will give you an XWindow environment which does allow you to open multiple console windows at the same time.
Alternatively, pressing ALT plus F1, F2, etc. will give you multiple login windows. Each F1, … is a separate login to run aircrack-ng commands or other linux commands. So you can have multiple programs running at the same time.
To disable kernel messages going to the console:
The mac80211 version of the drivers are also included in the distribution (rtl8187, rt73usb and ath5k). They are not patched for injection. However, you want/need them for regular wireless use.
