backtrack booting/x shell running problems
Here is my problem. I would like to play around in this but i cant get any of the ways to install it to work.
1. VMWARE Image
i can boot the vmware image all the way into the gui interface but realized you can only use USB wireless devices in vmware to get it to work. Well my VMWARE doesnt recognize my usb drivers. So thats out the window.
2. USB--(which i would really llike to get working.)
I have ran the batch file successfully on my vista machine via disabling UAC controls. When i boot to the USB drive i get the following.
Could not find kernel image: Linux
3. Live CD
when i boot from the live CD i actually get to the command line but when i try to start the gui via startx i get the following.
VESA(0): No matching nodes
Screen(s) found, but none have usable configs.
Fatal Server error
no screens found
xinit: connection reset by peer(error 104): unable to connect to x server
xinit: no such process(error 3 ) : server error
not sure what all that means but that makes it so i cant use a CD or cant make a dual boot.
Any advice woudl be greatly appreciated
What exactly do you want to achieve?
I am missing the point here. You want to use BT to crack a WEP and can't because you don't get your USB device working in Vista/VMWare?
Did you run the command xconf before starting the X server from the live cd?
Did you try the obvious and make sure the md5sum is correct?
Might also wanna try unetbootin
I am basically trying to achieve getting the GUI xwindows to actually run. My USB drivers work fine, but not in vmware. So what i would really like to do is get the boot straight from the USB flash drive to work.
I have tried the xconf command after logging in as root and it says that xwindows should be bootable now, yet still throws the same error.
edit: I used the unetbootin program to make a bootable USB drive. It worked up to the point of where the Live CD Got (the fatal server error). same thing happens when i do a xconf command as well.
Using a HP Tablet laptop
HP Touchsmart tx2-1025dx
Did you do a search on your model and graphics card if you might need special drivers for it?
And the X server is not bootable at all
I couldnt get backtrack 3 to get past the Critical server error.
I downloaded and made a live bactrack 4 cd and it works flawlessly besides my NIC not being compatible. So i suppose i will just use that for now.
Thanks for the help anyways.
