I recently burned a copy of backtrack 3 final onto CD for use on my G4 powermac via Virtual PC.
After booting into xwindows, I wasn't able to locate the wireless tools submenu (with kismet, etc.). Are the wireless tools not included with that release?
Would obtaining a copy of backtrack 4 offer me the wireless tools?
I followed the video tutorials that had konsole opened. The tools were not at the locations shown at the prompt. If I try an ls command at the konsole, no directories except for /desktop appears so there is nowhere for me to navigate to.
Of course, I don't use unix regularly so there must be other things involved but the tools do not appear to be in the same place and as shown in the tutorials and there's no reason I can fathom why they would be relocated elsewhere.
Might wanna start reading some basics and stop watching videos.
As per the first post ( at this rate it won't be long for it pops up)
Kismet sources are located in
Good luckCode:bt~# /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf
If you are truly interested in these tools, don't use the GUI. It will only hamper your learning.
If you are only interested in skript kiddie techniques, well, then use the GUI.
The reason for this is that the command line is where *nix is most powerful. And, as you move more into the *nix world you will find many systems that don't have X installed at all, but you must use the same tools. Also, whenever a new tool comes out, it invariably comes out for the command line long before it comes out for the GUI.
I realize that it is annoying to have *nix people say you should use the CLI, but if you really want to "get it" the CLI is the place to be.
