      ok here is the problem i am trying to run this script: http://www.foofus.net/~jmk/tools/eaper.py on backtrack 5 R1 but when ever i try and run it i get this error

      >>> wpactrl version 1.0.1 ...
      No wpa_ctrl sockets found in /var/run/wpa_supplicant/, aborting.

      now i have tried running wpa_supplicant with the argument

      wpa_supplicant -u -s -O /var/run/wpa_supplicant


      wpa_supplicant -u -s -C /var/run/wpa_supplicant

      to no avail. i am assuming the problem is that wpa_supplicant is not creating a control socket at /var/run/wpa_supplicant or at all any ideas?  by default it was running with these arguments:

      wpa_supplicant -u -s

      many thanks in advance:
