    I took the development release for a spin - VirtIO not working, so it's not possible to run BT in a KVM/VirtIO virtual environment

    Backtrack must be one of the only Linux distributions left, which doesn't support VirtIO out-of-the-box. Ubuntu/Fedora/CentOS/OpenSuse/ArchLinux/[lots of other distributions] all supports VirtIO out-of-the-box, to allow installation onto virtual VirtIO block devices, use of VirtIO NICs, etc.

    Essentially, these are the missing modules:
    • CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI=m (Virtualization -> PCI driver for virtio devices)
    • CONFIG_VIRTIO_BALLOON=m (Virtualization -> Virtio balloon driver)
    • CONFIG_VIRTIO_BLK=m (Device Drivers -> Block -> Virtio block driver)
    • CONFIG_VIRTIO_NET=m (Device Drivers -> Network device support -> Virtio network driver)
    • CONFIG_VIRTIO=m (automatically selected)
    • CONFIG_VIRTIO_RING=m (automatically seleced)


    There is no disadvantage in enabling these modules, it will not conflict with Vmware or other modules.

    The modules should also be included in the initramfs to allow booting from VirtIO block devices.

    It would be highly appreciated if you could fix this, I'll be more than happy to help out with testing if you need a tester...

    but there's a few error comes out when bootin.. but it seems it doesnt affect the wireless adapter cuz i can use AirCrack suite Perfectly. but i will still post it below..

    root@bt:~# dmesg | grep -ni error

    729:b43-phy0 ERROR: This device does not support DMA on your system. Please use PIO instead.
    730:b43-phy0: Controller RESET (DMA error) .
    I get the same thing on my Dell mini 9. I have a broadcom 4312 (14e4:4315). I updated the b43-fwcutter to version 13 to get my firmware (4.178.10.4). Other then the error, I have no problems with aircrack-ng nor use of encryption enabled APs.

    one solution to all problems is to move out of intrepid and go into lucid

    Its people like you who have no idea how hard it is to get all the stuff in backtrack to work together.

    I have to agree with you Purehate, moving to Lucid is just not the answer.

    duh I know its hard, but without it backtrack is just fail, updating packages is a bitch, ah dam they dont have it in the repo...
    and when it comes to new hardware, backtrack fails again
    Just got to form another team of developers

    yea and i know we still need a custom kernel, that only to fix injection for wireless

    Seem to be having issues with promisc mode with the WUSB54GC which works fine in BT4F.

    Tested on netbook Samsung N110, promisc mode and injection working fine with the built-in Atheros chipset.

    Code:

    EDIT
    ------
    the WUSB54GC does not work at all, get the same error message when trying to 'up' the interface.

    Would you please offer us a special copy of the kernel, which is compiled without PAE ?
    My old laptop with a Dothan CPU cannot boot the new bt4 r1, due to the lack of PAE feather. And I really wan't to test this new version on my poor laptop.
