> FATAL: Failed to set monitor mode: Invalid argument. This usually means your drivers either do not support monitor mode, or use a different mechanism for getting to it. Make sure you have a version of your drivers that support monitor mode, and consult the troubleshooting section of the README.

Install a version of the ipw driver capable of rfmon, or fix your installation to include rfmon if your distribution turned it off.
