How do I install aircrack-ng on Debian?

Debian includes aircrack-ng in their repositories, this tutorial will teach you how to compile from the source code.

Step 1: Install requirements

sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev subversion checkinstall

Step 2: Compilation

cd aircrack-ng
make experimental=true 
make install

You can opt to experimental=false, but we recomment to set it to true since this will build the great command beeside-ng.
