Hi, does anyone have experience of installing/using Dedected software on BT4 ? I have searched google etc. but without success,I wrongly assumed there would be a detailed " How To" somewhere.
HowTo | BackTrack Linux
Wow, after using the search button here on the forum, you're kinda hot on this subject aren't you?
Hi, thanks Lincoln but I already seen that and its not exactly "detailed" .....and Barry what can I say? as if I hadn't thought of clicking on a button entitled "How To" on BT4 Homepage!!! still it adds to your post count so it was worth your tuppence ...thanks anyway. At least you didn't give me the "google is your friend "
The lesson here is that if you are searching for something and find a few obvious things that are related to your problem but for some reason are unsuitable, MENTION THEM IN YOUR POST! That way we know you have found them and wont have to tell you about them under the (usually safe) assumption that someone who has made a one paragraph post in a new thread did not put too much effort into their search.
And Google is your friend.
Common Knowledge: Username, "root". Password, "toor". "startx" gives you a GUI, and "fix-vesa" will fix BT if you have no GUI. Start networking with "/etc/init.d/networking start" and check your IP settings with "ifconfig -a". "dhclient" will automatically use DHCP for your IP. Google is your friend.
I could give a **** about my post count. Personally I think they're stupid.
To be serious for a second though, there's really very little benefit to be gained from raising your post count here. Its usually done artificially only by new members trying to get around the post moderation requirements (or the link posting requirements from the old forum). For established members the only benefit you get is the change from "Junior Member" to "Senior Member" which occurs at post 100.
Anyway, as long as the post adds to the discussion in some way it is considered valid and gets to stay, and posts made just for the sake of it DO get deleted by the moderators, so lets stop with the accusations of post count raising shall we?
No really, I mean if you would tell us what step or part your are actually having trouble with instead of badgering those who pointed out the obvious, then maybe you would actually get help, instead of sarcasm.
If this is to hard for you then by all means go elsewhere, either way leave the attitude at the log-in prompt.
