    Default getting VLC running in backtrack 5

    Simple instructions to get vlc Running in BT5
    run the following in the command line
    Code:
    apt-get install vlc
    once that's done run
    Code:
    hexedit /usr/bin/vlc
    then press [tab] to move the cursor over to the text section and find where it says:
    Code:
    geteuid._libc_start_man
    and change it to:
    Code:
    getppid.libc_start_man
    And there you have it!

    Sorry if this is the wrong section, I wasn't allowed to post in the How To's section because im new I guess.

    Hmm, what about having it play .flv files or .wmv. Wasn't there a "non-free" package one could use in apt get. What was it called....

    You can install 'non-free-codecs'

    Code:
    apt-get install non-free-codecs

    And @b0bb3r5
    The line should be changed to
    Code:
    getppid.__libc_start_man
    not
    Code:
    getppid.libc_start_man
    You should keep the two underscores.

    Sorry for being nosy

    I can't get it to load in general (root or non-root) and I also don't think the hex edit trick to make it run as root works any longer.
