    Re: Change Bootsplash

    that file is called /bootsplash and it will be in the topmost directory of the miniroot filesystem contained in your initrd.gz

    The first 38 bytes are header information (x,y coordinates and width,...

    Re: ruby or shell magic needed

    No, thank you.

    It's easy to get jaded about linux and to want to chuck it in and go back to a system that "just works" (tm). It's nice every now and again to solve a complex real-world problem in...

    In your example, the first passphrase ends at an exclamation mark, not a period. How am I supposed to know which symbols mark the end of a passphrase and which ones should be embedded?

    If you want something that "just works" then 64-bit Linux isn't for you.

    Re: Change Bootsplash

    I agree, which is why I removed Plymouth from my initrd: I like to look at information, not pictures of dragons.

    I primarily use BT from a VM in my lab at home, or from a live image. In both of...

    Re: setting up user permissions

    Yes and no.

    A lot of tools that come with backtrack need root privilege to work properly, but a lot of them don't. If you're pentesting a webapp, for example, then you could quite easily get away...

    Re: Change Bootsplash

    OK, that one is created by Plymouth and the files you want to change are inside your initrd.gz



    # mkdir x && cd x
    # gunzip -c /path/to/initrd.gz | cpio -id


    The files you want to change...

    Re: Change Bootsplash

    It's hard to know exactly which bootsplash you're talking about because BT5 is overrun with the things.

    First there's the splash image that you get at the boot menu - that file is located at...

    Urgh. Is this still a problem for people?

    Yeah, I know how to install and configure Tor, I just figured I'd point out that it's missing from the package repository.

    Tor

    Tor seems to be missing from the 32-bit (I haven't checked 64) BT5 package repository.

    It's easy enough to install manually, but since it's recommended by a number of other packages, I assume a...

    Re: Installing and Using Nessus 4.2.2: The Basics Part 1

    Great post JellyBelly.

    I'd also recommend editing /opt/nessus/etc/nessus/nessusd.conf so that the line "auto_update = yes" is commented, and "listen_address" is set to "127.0.0.1" so as to...
