BackTrack 5 was issued on May 10th. For the first time an official version with Gnome probably the pressure of society said its word 🙂 and due to this fact I decided to install it on my EEE 1000H. After all, Gnome is my favorite graphical environment . Just like the 4th version again, the current one is based on Ubuntu 10.04LTS. Which, in my opinion, is not a disadvantage, let's say the target group is lama hahori 😀 . As usual the basic network manager is wicd, which is generally quite pleasant at least in my opinion it is preferred ( when I need 😉 ), but the eee bugs me that it can't connect to unencrypted wireless networks. Quite unpleasant definitely, with your normal Gnome network manager this problem is absent. The situation is already clear, I have a problem and I have a solution.

In general, I will not focus on the installation and removal of the main pitfall that will happen.. Otherwise the previous ones 2 операции по стандартния начин с apt-get или през synaptic както ви е най комфортно. Така споменах за подводен камък и тои е следния заради съдържанието в /etc/network/interfaces network-manager-a cannot initialize your network adapters. You need to comment on everything unnecessary, including settings with IP addresses. After I cleared the contents of mine, something like this happened

auto read th0 wlan0
allow-hotplug wlan0
allow-hotplug eth0

This solves the problem with the network manager not working.

You know that I like to play with the dark side of things 😀 My favorite tool in these flirtations has almost always been backtrack or at least part of it. In their latest version, the boys migrated to mutate Ubuntu which they have tried to mutate well enough. I wandered around the forum to kill some time to read some big nonsense from the acres in the forum and once again came across a request for Gnome support in Backtrak. Super Gnome is also my favorite decanter environment, Honestly, I've tried almost everything possible for something, I'm sorry, but only Gnome gives me enough internal comfort at work, and KDE, neither LXDE nor their various boxes there, only to some extent does the E17 make me happy. Soooo I deviated a lot from the idea. So the guys developers strained and made the menu with the actors birth certificate not visible if you manage to install your gnome. From here, all Ubuntu premature babies howled so viciously and pitifully, that I can even hear them muttering, sobbing and crying. Is it so hard to install Ubuntu and then upload it? 5-6 tulchek which eventually use and it does not, that they use them just for fun and to enjoy themselves, that they have an actor tools hem to rinse eyes in Gnome. But they should have a backtrack, otherwise how, every self-respecting actor should use this distro because it is full of useful and useless tools where they do not think to install them themselves 😀 Enough that I can still pour pour and still not enough time for dumb users to hear me.

Finally after 2 year waiting yesterday the new stable version of my favorite appeared debian – lenny :)This is damn big news considering how slowly the Debian society is evolving from to distributions. It's already etch oldstable and lenny stable you can change your mirrors 🙂 On this machine they have already been changed and everything is fine. Congratulations, I will continue to be unstable that these stems viangi things were a little old to me 😉

Last week saw the first beta of BackTrack 4 a lot of things have changed. The main thing is the distribution from slax to ubuntu. I can't judge whether this is the right step but for sure things will improve from to upgrade maintenance upgrades and so on. I am not convinced that a good step only because it does not use a pure Debian, but from another point of view it uses an extremely stable distribution which in recent years has become the most popular Linux..

Since I have had a strong traffic from Google for a few days with a search for backtrack and its ways to install it, I decided that it is difficult for people to install it 🙂 because after the beta version they removed the installer . The installation itself is more than a simple procedure. So let's get to work, for a start I prefer to install it through the flash drive, that I'm tired of writing on disks and so on 🙂 Not that the installation procedure changes just to clarify I say 😉 I'll look 2 how to install one with a graphical installer and the other with commands – a little harder version 😉 In general, you should have prepared a partition or if you haven't done it, prepare it, this step I won't consider it more than meaningless 😉

1. Installation with GUI

You take it off installer 🙂 Then you choose real for the installation and let the original MBR not be repaired and you are ready. However, if the installer has not overwritten the lilo, you will have to get your hands a little dirty with a console. You open it with some editor. /etc / lilo.conf rub everything out of it and put

boot = /dev/sda
 image = /boot/vmlinuz
 root = /dev/sda3
 label = backtrack3_final

and overwrite it with lilo -v 🙂

2. Console install

again we accept the variant that everything we prepared in advance 🙂 in this case sda3 is our partition for /

mkdir /mnt/backtrack
 mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/backtrack/
 mkdir /mnt/backtrack/boot/
 mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/backtrack/boot/ #ако boot партишъна ви е на същия дял като / нямя нужда от тая стъпка
 cp --preserve -R /{bin,dev,home,pentest,root,usr,etc,lib,opt,sbin,var} /mnt/backtrack/
 mkdir /mnt/backtrack/{mnt,proc,sys,tmp}
 mount --bind /dev/ /mnt/backtrack/dev/
 mount -t proc proc /mnt/backtrack/proc/
 cp /boot/vmlinuz /mnt/backtrack/boot/
 chroot /mnt/backtrack/ /bin/bash
 nano /etc/lilo.conf

From here you continue to overwrite the lilo by deleting everything from the file In general and not so general lines this is 🙂

It's been a while 3 I have an Asus EEE 1000H for days and I can't complain about it at all. For these 3 days I hit him hard on a test of distroci which will go well on the little one. In general, there are various Ubuntu havi where they are tricked about the EEE, but I didn't like something very much 😉 I'm sado / masochistic in this respect.. I tried various Slax and BackTrack but at the moment my wi-fi adapter does not support injection 😈 so I prefer something like that. After a short tour I found this tutorial Debian EEE 😉 It describes in great detail how to install Debian on your EEE PC. If you don't read it or you're a little quarrelsome with English, I'm generalizing to you 1-2 thin moments.

1. He takes you off this ~16MB image

2. With the dd command you mark it on a flash drive as big as you have dd swin option. The unpacking itself is done with

Linux – it is very important that your USB device is not mounted

dd if=debian-eeepc.img of=/dev/YOUR-USB-DEVICE

Pig <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>X: is the letter of your device</span>

dd if=debian-eeepc.img od=X:

3. You start your EEE by telling it to read your flash drive first. The installer is known 😉 I. ;I chose an expert instal because of most options and especially that I had the opportunity to choose between the 3 options stable, testing & unstable 🙂 guess which one I chose 😎 During the installation the network hardware is absolutely familiar the network and wi-fi adapter go by default.

4. When the installation is complete, everything is fine, I have a ready working debut of EEE PC. but there is a need for a little tuning, for example, the function buttons do not work or do not show the correct speed stepping and battery storage options 😉 For this thing you have to either start everything by hand or 😉 use the violins eee-ubuntu-support which I reworked wekinko for our debut click I have removed some things from the scripts , such as costing a debian X., I also added the activation of the camera беше that it was turned off by default. There is still something to touch on them, but if I have time I will do it. I also don't know if the violin will work correctly with the other EEEs 😉

From here on out, you add the repositories for the option you have chosen and use your EEE PC with a song in your mouth..

ps It's good to install a lock-keys-applet to see what's going on with Caps Lock 😉
