    i recommend using the forum search only for one word without any special characters, like the very special -



    use this instead BackTrack Support Search Engine

    You could also use google to search the forums:
    Code:
    apt-get site:forums.remote-exploit.org
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Also, a simple search for the actual command works too. apt-get is the faster command line way of getting a known package. aptitude is the graphical method from the command line. I typically use aptitude when I don't know the exact package name, but the general purpose of the package.


    Try searching for aptitude and see if you get better results.

    Is this what you are looking for?

    Also I get the same results with just searching for "apt" , like junkiethumbs said, use aptitude with your search.

    All thanks for the help.
    I seen something on here (killing time at work ) and thought thats interesting i will read the full thread when i get home. Get home and forget all about it for a few days, cant even remember what it was about now ! All i can remember was that it had a few commands in the text and one of them was apt-get and it was in BT4PF ( somewhere )

    I have access to the proxy at work so a quick trawl though the logs should find it

    Thanks again
