Airmon-ng conflicting with NetworkManager issue [HELP]

hello !

I tried to use airmon-ng to monitor the networks around my device. but, when I tried to start the process for my interface it conflicts with NetworkManager and advises to kill the process.

after executing the command 

 airmon-ng start wlp2s0 

output,

Found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
Kill them using 'airmon-ng check kill' before putting
the card in monitor mode, they will interfere by changing channels
and sometimes putting the interface back in managed mode

    PID Name
 417454 NetworkManager
 417463 wpa_supplicant

PHY	Interface	Driver		Chipset

phy0	wlp2s0		ath10k_pci	Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 31)
		(mac80211 monitor mode vif enabled for [phy0]wlp2s0 on [phy0]wlp2s0mon)
		(mac80211 station mode vif disabled for [phy0]wlp2s0)

please, help me solve this issue.

thank you in advance !

So what happened when you did what was suggested?


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Re: Airmon-ng conflicting with NetworkManager issue [HELP]

after entering monitor mode, next step is to catch the packets with airodump-ng .

it's just kept looking for networks and didn't found any. even though like 4 networks are available in the close range.
