Hi all ,
Hope someone can help me please--have searched in a few forums , but no real answer .
I have an asus eee pc 4g with ubuntu 9.0 installed , it works fine and I can use airoscript , aircrack ,etc .
I have a usb stick(2gb--about 1.4gb used for BT4) with BT4 on it and it works as a live cd --but ...I cant get wireless manager to work --I can use the aircrack suite ,so I know the wireless is working , but I cant connect to AP's that I can detect!
The other issue is that when I try to install BT4 directly onto the asus HD I get errors at the end of the install involving the partioning of the disc ....any idea how much space is needed?
Big massive thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction
Many thanks for the reply , I will look into the squash method you mentioned , any ideas on the wireless problem? or would that be because it is running off the USB stick?
btw , like the Nancy Astor quote .
I dont think the wireless issue has anything to do with the USB stick, I think its just a general network configuration issue. BackTrack doesn't configure its networking as easily and automatically as Ubuntu (its a deliberate design choice) so you have to configure it yourself. Theres info here on the forum and on the 'Net about how to do this.
Big thanks for your help , I guess short of buying another SSD for the asus I will just run it off the USB --i used the command ifconfig -a to see all of my interfaces and then brought up wlan0 . Will keep reading and learning .
thanks for going easy on my first post , much appreciated.
