    Hello Everyone!
    I'm having an issue when I try to use a LARGE wordlist (dictionary). By large I mean file size. When I use minidwep and as soon as I try to select a dictionary that is a few gigabytes in size (say 4.9 gigs) and click "OK" I get the popup message "No key found in the dictionary" BUT if I select a smaller file (like 1.9 gigs) the aircrack.ng window pops up and starts its magic. This happens when I use either feedinfbottle or minidwep.

    I don't know exectly what the exact file size causes this to happen, but I do know a file of 4.9 gigs (and larger) causes the message, LIKE I STATED ABOVE, but a file 1.9 gigs seems to work. I don't have a list in between 1.9 and 4.9 gigs so I don't know the "cut off" point. It doesn't matter the file extension/format of the dictionary (I mean .txt or .LST) both formats work as long as the size is small.
    Does this have any connection to the 4gig limit on a FAT32 file system? Let me explain my setup. FIRST, if not obvious, I'm new to the Linux world, but VERY experienced with windows (big deal, right).
    I'm running .0.4.6 on a Live USB, the USB is formatted to FAT32 (running on an i7 Asus laptop). I have all the wordlists saved to an external USB hard drive (formatted to NTFS). The wireless device I'm using is either a Linksys USB AE1000 Ralink RT3572L or the laptop's internal card, Atheros 9285.

    Before I hit the "post" button here, I just copied the wordlists to my laptop hard drive to see if that make a difference but it did not :(
    If I were to format the USB flash drive to something like ext3 or ext4 and put Xiaopan on the USB drive, do you think this would fix this issue (I don't know). I did try this but when using windows and Lili USB or UNetbootin I can't select the USB flash drive as the location to install the LIVE copy. So I have to format the USB stick to FAT32 so I can use the above mentioned utilities to create the LIVE USB.

    I didn't know how to classify this post, "Info" or "Question". It sure is my issue that I have a question about!

    Thanks so much for such an AMAZING distro and 0.4.6 is BEAUTIFUL. THIS WEBSITE KICKS ASS!!!
    THANKS,
    JOHN

    Thanks so much for the quick reply meknb!

    Is it possible to create a live USB version on an ext4 formatted USB flash drive. I tired before using unetbootin but when I tired to boot of the flash drive I got an error about no boot environment on the device or something like that, I don't remember exactly what the error message said.

    Also, is it possible to install Xiaopan on a hard drive and dual boot like other distros? If so, how, or just me to the information. I'd love to be able to install this alongside my windows install and dual boot.
    THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR TIME READING THIS AND THANKS FOR ANY HELP,
    John

    Sorry to be so"wordy" in my first post, I was just trying to give all details required to be able to help me.

    Try this: Dual Boot with Xiaopan & Windows XP
    I think this is the easier way to do a dual boot Windows/Xiaopan :)

    I guess I'm gonna dual boot it then...:meh:
    1. Is anyone who uses a LIVE USB able to use wordlists larger than 4gigs?

    2. Also, is there any way to create a LIVE USB with a USB flash drive formatted to ext3/ext4 (any file system that lifts the 4gig max file size)? If this isn't possible with in a windows environment can it be done in a Linux environment. My desktop is dual boot with windows and Mint, so can a LIVE USB be created on an ext4 USB flash drive in Mint?

    Thanks so much guys for helping!!!

    As i said in my previous post my basic guide to install on usb is about half way down the thread, i just use tc-install to install on usb you can use ext3 or 4 filesystem. The no boot environment error is just no boot loader installed on your usb drive.
