    Thumbs up Latest Upgrade considerations

    Firstly, I have a bt4-final iso, which I do not know when I downloaded but the
    Code:
    /etc/apt/sources.list
    was still pointing to
    Code:
    deb http://archive.offensive-security.com pwnsauce main microverse macroverse restricted universe multiverse
    which does not work.
    It doesn't give an error but the package lists appear to be outdated.

    I will download the current ISO and check if the sources are correct.

    Secondly, I saw that many tools were updated in the last update, like metasploit.
    Apparently the update breaks the
    Code:
    svn update
    command with the error:
    Code:
    svn: Failed to add file 'scripts/meterpreter/enum_powershell_env.rb': an unversioned file of the same name already exists
    I think the best choice is not to update metasploit through repositories, let the user do that.

    I tried testing the svn for exploitdb, but it complains that Exploits Database by Offensive Security is unreacheable. Possibly a local problem.


    Also, in the guide
    HTML Code:
    http://www.offensive-security.com/backtrack/how-to-update-backtrack-2-6-34/
    The step
    Code:
    apt-get install madwifi-drivers broadcom-sta r8187-drivers linux-source-2.6.34
    is not needed, since
    Code:
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    already installs these packages...

    It would perhaps be easier if the kernel update package performed all the later actions of moving sources and compiling.


    Very nice updates! Keep up the work!
    Will there be and ISO update? Since this could be considered and major update.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, dumb question there.

    I had seen the roadmap, but forgot that there was R1 planned in July...
