Oh, sorry. I am a newbie on Pentest industry. Thank you for your hints.
Hi Fresh install of backtrack running in VBox Virtual Machine (not an real install, I downloaded the VM and imported it in to VBox) that runs on a win7 x64 host.
used script v 0.6 to update:
First I could not update, did not detect internet (I do have internet), when I bypassed with the option script runs very fast and times out saying something like this: "  invalid option chosen" or something to that effect, after showing the options list. This happened when script asked me if it should continue without internet access and I entered "y" and pressed "enter". After a million tries I discovered that if I entered "y1" (as written, both together) script runs with option 1, if I entered "y6" script runs with option 6. :confused:
I did run it with both options, first "y1" rebooted, then with option "y6", it SEEMS (I am totally noob to pentesting so maybe I am wrong) to have updated all OK with one exception: start up and command line console (before startx) are all black, without the colored border it had before.
Just my 10 cents, hope it is use full
I know your job is NOT a noob teacher :cool: but ... is there any way to do this with out recompiling and all that stuff? pleaaaseee :confused:Quote:

@sickness: got it working, just cleaned, downloaded again, did the gcc stuff, ran it and it updated all. ;)
Got to get down to some serious learning on this linux and pentesting stuff. :rolleyes:
Could you please add Wireshark to the tools updated via your script? Would be a very nice time saving inclusion.
thanks again :)
SET cannot be updated due to some files exist.
