    Default Usb boot problems Update: problem solved

    I have backtrack installed on a usb. when i boot from the usb, the backtrack terminal appears, but most of the commands ie: startx, airmon-ng, wont work, and dont appear on the help list. I had it working fine on the vm, couldnt find the answer in the forums. im new to backtrack, please help. I installed with Unebootin, an it never asked for a login. It did say somthing about the shell and [ash].

    Update: Problem solved. For some odd reason unebootin wasn't installing corectly. Its working now though.

    What you do exactly mean with "I have backtrack installed on a usb" Did you use Unebootin or have you installed it permanently?

    If its permanent install you need to login "root/toor" and then startx.

    startx is what you need, if it says no screen found type in fix-vesa or fixvesa, I cant remember which one.
