Hi everybody and thanks for the support,

I am trying to have a list of every frame received by my wifi card.
Reading previews discussions i learnt it was possible using debugfs. So i mounted it
[code1rfghvym]mount -t debugfs none /mnt/debug[/code1rfghvym]

Before that i enabled CONFIG_MAC80211_DEBUGFS as well as CONFIG_RT2X00_LIB_DEBUGFS and CONFIG_DEBUGFS in the .config file located in /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.31-23-generic/

I can find the folder ieee80211/phy* but there is no dump file in it.

Thank you for help

Changing the kernel config requires you to recompile your kernel and boot from that new version.
Looking at your post, you only changed the configuration, but didn't recompile anything.

Thank you it works now.
Sorry i'm not linux expert. I didn't know that changing .config file means recompile the kernel.
