    Red face how to export backtrack tools?

    Is there a way to export all the awesome backtrack tools to another operating system?

    I dual boot backtrack & another OS, and I'd like to have a few tools on both...
    Is it possible?

    You can search the intertubes for the source files for the tools you wish to use on the other OS and install them that way.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Find tool.
    Locate source.
    Download source.
    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    Done.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Making the menu isn't that tough to do. You can recreate it on whatever OS you're working with. Or, just use BackTrack.

    That's probably the easiest way.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Sorry, this isn't Mac OS, you can't just copy the programs over and expect them to work.

    With that statement it's obvious you don't understand linux.

    There's dozens of dependencies across several directories. Each application needs to be compiled with it's dependencies suited for the OS that is doing the compiling.
