Description Jon LeBlanc 2017-05-26 19:08:11 CEST
During upgrade from MGA5.1 to MGA6 with properly running network, aircrack-ng-1.2.0rc1.3.mga6.x86_64.rpm hangs with the following screen message:

[*] Downloading IEEE OUI file...

Waited 5 minutes for activity but had to ^C to break out to command line, ran urpme aircrack-ng and then reran upgrade, which completed with no further problems. Have not installed aircrack-ng after upgrade was completed.

Suspect that hard coded www URL is broken. Suggest that even with correct URL a hard timeout be added to aircrack-ng source or else limit such a download to first use of aircrack-ng in order to prevent this from happening during installs.

this is not release blocker but need to be fixed anyway.

the URL is OK, it uses :


if [ ${WGET} ]; then
                ${WGET} ${OUI_DOWNLOAD_URL} -O ${OUI_IEEE} >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
                ${CURL} -L ${OUI_DOWNLOAD_URL} > ${OUI_IEEE} 2>/dev/null

It might be good to add a note about this in the Errata, thus I'm adding the
FOR_ERRATA6 keyword.

Once added to https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Mageia_6_Errata please replace

Keywords: (none) => FOR_ERRATA6
