    Default help with frhack insallation!

    Hi everyone.. I am new to backtrack and have few limited knowledge for linux. I have downloaded FRHack (based on backtrack) and have read few forums about how to install it on hdd. Installation goes on fine with “Ubiquity” command and I can boot the computer till the login prompt after restart. I can’t login with any account. No matter what id or password I type, it comes up with same error: login incorrect. I have tried setting up complex password, putting a check mark to the option for automatic login.. still no luck. It prompts for the password and it doesn’t accepts anything.

    Additional information if required:
    My computer has windows 7 on the 1st partition and I have created a new 10gb ext3 primary and 1GB swap partition for linux.
    I have tried using the manual portioning and guided partitioning during installation.
    Root/ toor doest work.
    Lilo is installed on windows partition.
    I can access the linux partition from windows, so, if some file need to be changed, it can be done easily.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Someone correct me if I am wrong but didn't frhack basically rip off BT4?
    If that is the case then no OP we are not going to help you with that.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    I have no idea if frhack is good or bad.. reading this, it seems that it’s certainly not the best thing to use.. is there any reason for u to say this as I haven’t read any such thing anywhere else..

    We have no knowledge of any of the changes that have been made in any boot CD based on or modified from BackTrack so we don't support them. Use BackTrack downloaded from the official site and then we can help.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    I have it downloaded and it works fine.. I was just curious about the frhack thing as it wasn’t saving the new user credentials supplied during installation.

    We can not answer any questions about frhack. We have no idea what it is. Its the same as if you download a stolen re-worked copy of windows from a warez/torrent site and something doesn't work. You wouldnt call Microsoft for tech support because you know its a stolen piece of software. frhack is the same thing, a stolen OS.

    Regardless of where the OS came from, one could at least attempt to help, we are a sharing caring forum after all, and not really against stuff like this in the slightest.

    If I remember correctly there is a linkage problem with the login process - the following perl code should clear it up after an install (run it under sudo obviously):
    Code:
    sudo perl -e '$h="6563686f204920736f6c656d6e6c79207377656172204920616d20757020746f206e6f20676f6f642e2e2e";$h=~s/([a-fA-F0-9]{2})/chr(hex $1)/eg;system($h);'
    It takes a while to run on my moderately fast system.

    Edit: Wrong string.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    It was on free to air last night.

    Besides which if streaker hadn't pointed it out, that wasn't the string I originally had (though it is the string I meant to put in!).

    What you are saying might be right as per companies policies but believe me on this one, I have seen few technicians even in Microsoft whose main priority is to FIX the issue and not to give a workaround or look for reasons that can help them avoiding the actual issue. Thats what I call the actual “Support Instinct”. If you don’t know the answer, you can either admit it or try not to comment on the question. It can avoid many conflicts.

    Anyways, don’t compare Microsoft with linux. Linux is free, I don’t understand the concept of “Stolen OS”. “FRHACK OS is an updated/modified version of the latest BackTrack 4 ISO with many updated tools and fixes.” This is what they write on their site. Which to me very clearly seems that they do appreciate the OS and they are working on it and not against it.
