    Default Useful Howto Threads

    This is a page with links to some of the more useful/popular threads on the forum on topics that aren't covered in the BackTrack Wiki or are already up on Irongeek's security tutorials page (those new to linux should also bookmark www.slackbook.org and refer to it frequently). Google has also added a linux-specific search that is great for checking error output ( http://www.google.com/linux ) Feel free to PM me with links that you think I've missed or should be included and I"ll edit them in. Thanks to everybody who's contributed to the thread so far.

    Because somebody had to do it.

    Default Yahoo Messenger for BackTrack 2

    What: Yahoo Messenger for BlackTrack 2

    Why: For whatever reason you want to use Yahoo Messenger (instead of GAIM) for instant messaging

    How: Goto http://www.slax.org/modules.php and download ymessenger 1.0.4 to /
    Code:
    bt / # mo2lzm ymessenger_1_0_4.mo ymessenger_1_0_4.lzm
    bt / # lzm2dir ymessenger_1_0_4.lzm /
    bt / # /opt/ymessenger/bin/ymessenger
    It's that simple. As a note, most other Slax modules (.mo) should be able to be installed using this same basic format.
