    I understand that the file is missing, probably .config

    I new to linux and to backtrack, so i asking for help.

    i was doing this commands to upgrade the kernel:

    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    apt-get install madwifi-drivers broadcom-sta r8187-drivers linux-source-2.6.34
    apt-get clean
    depmod -a

    cd /usr/src/
    rm -rf linux linux-source-2.6.30.9*
    rm -rf /lib/modules/2.6.30.9/
    tar jxpf linux-source-2.6.34.tar.bz2
    ln -s linux-source-2.6.34 linux
    cd linux
    cp /boot/config-2.6.34 .config - here i got the error
    ln -s /usr/src/linux /lib/modules/2.6.34/build
    make scripts && make prepare
    apt-get clean && updatedb
    reboot # dont forget to reboot!

    the reason i doing this upgrade is because i have read that this will solve the problem
    with my wireless adapter bcm4312, vmware doesnt recognize it and backtrack too.

    Did you try that? I don't see any errors myself.
    The step by step guide to Backtrack.
    1. Open up your Internet Browser.
    2. Go to google Home Page.
    3. Type in exactly what you are looking for in search box provided.
    4. Use your mouse to go were it says, search, click on it.
    5. Read till your eyes bleed.
    6. Rinse, wash, repeat.

    Just manually go there and check for the file ... see if it's there.

    if got the same error. the folder /boot/config-2.6.34 is'nt in the root@backtrack:/usr/src/linux/

    I find only under the directory /src/linux-source-2.6.34/arch/* "/boot" directories. Nowhere the file config-2.6.34

    And, yes, I have tried a reboot.

    Use aptitude

    Code:

    aptitude full-upgrade

    and it will prompt you with a solution to remove linux-image. DO NOT say Y to this solution.
    It will then prompt a solution to install the latest 2.6.34 kernel (ending with bt7). Say N to this, too.
    The next will be 2.6.34-bt6. Say N.
    The next solution should be 2.6.34-bt3. Agree to this solution. It will download 4 wireless firmware files in addition to the older 2.6.34 kernel. These files must establish the /lib/firmware that we keep getting errors on.

    The kernel will install, etc. You can reboot and run a full apt-get or aptitude dist-upgrade and the bt7 version of the 2.6.34 kernel will load successfully. It will also remove the 4 wireless firmware packages.

    I'm not sure, but you might be able to just install one of the wireless packages and then perform a full update. The packages that installed were firmware-iwlwifi, firmware-ipw, firmware-b43 and firmware-ar9170
