    Default Downloading bactrack tools on another Linux distro?

    I installed BT4F but I realised that my wifi card isn't supported so I was wondering if I can download the tools that are used on BT and how I could go about it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, we dont support the use of BackTrack tools on other Linux distributions.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    You can google most of the tools and download them individually but it is much easier to just use the BT distro. Spend $30 and get yourself an external wifi card that is supported odds on are your internal one can't do both modes anyway.

    You go to the tools individual web pages and get them there. Like Lupin said though, we don't support other Linux distros.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Why don't you just download the .iso burn it on a DVD and whenever you need the tools boot Backtrack ?
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
    Do not take a look at the: Forum Rules !

    What tools are you looking for? I know Openvas, ettercap & the aircrack-ng suite are in the ubuntu 10.04 repo's.

    That's almost like work, can't have that.


    Though, most linux distros have package management systems. A lot of the tools in BackTrack are in those systems.

    OK, further information, we dont support moving the BackTrack tools over to another distro, but, as others have mentioned, you can simply install the tools you want to use on that other distro. Either grab them from your distros repository or install from source using the instructions on the tools website.

    It involves effort, but its effective.
