    Default Backtrack 5R1 first review ,bugs & Fixes

    Hallo Everyone
    Great Distro, i am immensely enjoying it, and enjoying fixing some bugs, maybe related to my hardware, so no blames
    Ok First of all Usb installation didnt work in anyway, but hey,! i got it on DVD and installed like a charm .
    Now the Bugs:

    1) Ettercap is in the menu but its not installed ! Proof:

    root@bt:~# ettercap -G
    The program 'ettercap' can be found in the following packages:
    * ettercap (You will have to enable component called 'universe')
    * ettercap-gtk (You will have to enable component called 'universe')
    Try: apt-get install <selected package>

    *** FIX: ' apt-get install synaptic , then apt-get install gdebi .
    when done, download and install the following 2 packages:

    https://launchpad.net/~timothy-redae...izzt1_i386.deb
    https://launchpad.net/~timothy-redae...izzt1_i386.deb


    2) NVIDIA DRIVERS: the tutorial in the WIKI is not working this time, incompatibility issues ( try it before you opt for this fix)

    Instructions : gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    add these lines and save:
    blacklist vga16fb
    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist rivafb
    blacklist nvidiafb
    blacklist rivatv

    Then:
    apt-get --purge remove nvidia-*

    Reboot

    add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates

    apt-get update && apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-current-modaliases nvidia-settings

    Reboot then nvidia-xconfig


    3) SOUND: Go to System->Preferences -> Startup Applications

    Make sure you’re in the tab ‘Startup programs’

    -> Click on ‘Add’

    Name: Pulseaudio daemon
    Command:/usr/bin/pulseaudio
    Comment: Start the sound daemon

    Now logout, then login again


    4) SSLSTRIP :

    root@bt:~# sslstrip
    sslstrip: command not found

    FIX: Download SSLStrip from http://www.thoughtcrime.org/software/sslstrip/

    Then :

    root@bt:~# tar -zxvf sslstrip-0.9.tar.gz

    Another to add.

    5) If you attempt to run the unicornscan-pgsql-setup script from the menu, you get the following error:

    ./setup-unicornscan.sh: line 46: /opt/framework3/postgresql/data/pg_hba.diff.patch: No such file or directory...
    ./setup-unicornscan.sh: line 70: cd: /opt/framework3/postgresql/data/: No such file or directory
    [FATAL] pg_hba.diff.patch could not be applied. Exiting

    FIX: add a symbolic link
    root@bt:~/# ln -s /opt/framework /opt/framework3

    Comments such as these do nothing to fix any issues that may arise. I challenge you to either produce posts that are not only detailed and relevant or go roll your own distribution. Now if you just feel like being critical of something feel free to actually have some documented facts to help back you up.
    Otherwise your just being a troll.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    2) Good work in the tutorial.
    But in my case it helped me.
    My card Nvidia Gforce FX5500 does not work well in BT5 r1.
    One can only 720x576 resolution, thereby
    occupies at most 1 / 4 of the monitor.
