I was finally able to get BT2 installed as a dual boot on my laptop, and it's been awfully fun, however, I'd like to use the OS to also do 'real work' . I've been trying to install some packages I'd like to use such as Open Office (the slackware version) but I can't get anything to install. I've tried using installpkg and it seems to start working but as soon as it says (paraphrasing) 'installing package' it just drops to the shell command line and nothing else happens. I've tried manually untar-ing the file and installing, but again it will act like it's doing something and then just stop.
Am I missing something simple?? I'm a 'mostly noob', I've played around with other distros, and I'm fairly comfortable with using the console...
Any help appreciated!!
not designed for this usage but if u want here is a procedure for creating modules
untar sources in a dir
cd to this dir
a package .tgz will be created need to convert to lzmformat
tgz2lzm name.tgz name.lzm
after i you want it loaded each time you start the live distrib copy it rootofusbinstall/bt/modules/
or easier but weirder i think download a slax module (http://slax.org/modules), convert it with mo2lzm module.mo module.lzm
Watch your back, your packetz will belong to me soon... xD

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. I understand that BT2 is meant to do one thing really well - just thought it'd be cool to use it for other stuff.
Along those lines, I would like to be able to do wireless packet analysis and I've been trying to install wireshark and have been having similar issues. Haven't searched this forum yet to see if there is a solution - As soon as I post this I'll start looking...
Wireshark is included in BT2 so there is no need to install it.
it is under privilege escalation.
just wondering though...what is the difference between wireshark and wireshark wifi?
quote directly from Tools page of wiki
"Wireshark Wifi - Wireshark with Wifi Injection Patch allows the user to select a packet opened with wireshark and edit it and reinject throught LORCON injection library."
Crap! Should've realized it was already in there!! Thanks all.
