    Cool Re: r2 upgrade to r3 error

    There are a couple things I think you can do that might be helpful. I was having a crappy time trying to go through some of the BT upgrades to R3 myself, although mine revolved around virtualbox, which for me I guess was kinda inevitable.

    You can do the
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
    without having to go through the hassle of completely reinstalling BT5R3 on your OS, and then just add the build upgrades individually. I have taken the liberty to list them all here:

    **32-BIT UPGRADES**
    Code:
    apt-get install libcrafter blueranger dbd inundator intersect mercury cutycapt trixd00r artemisa rifiuti2 netgear-telnetenable jboss-autopwn deblaze sakis3g voiphoney apache-users phrasendrescher kautilya manglefizz rainbowcrack rainbowcrack-mt lynis-audit spooftooph wifihoney twofi truecrack uberharvest acccheck statsprocessor iphoneanalyzer jad javasnoop mitmproxy ewizard multimac netsniff-ng smbexec websploit dnmap johnny unix-privesc-check sslcaudit dhcpig intercepter-ng u3-pwn binwalk laudanum wifite tnscmd10g bluepot dotdotpwn subterfuge jigsaw urlcrazy creddump android-sdk apktool ded dex2jar droidbox smali termineter bbqsql htexploit smartphone-pentest-framework fern-wifi-cracker powersploit webhandler
    **64-BIT UPGRADES**
    All of the above, with the addition of multiforcer

    Hope this helps!!

    Default Re: r2 upgrade to r3 error

    the real problem here was

    Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
    update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.39.4
    Cannot find /lib/modules/2.6.39.4
    update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-2.6.39.4
    dpkg: error processing initramfs-tools (--configure):
    subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    initramfs-tools
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    i now have a fix;> and its cleaner.
    first do
    aptitude purge ~c
    this got rid of old config files from old os's that was for some reason when i did apt-get remove purge was not removed
    than i cleaned /var/lib/initramfs removing everything except the newest kernel
    than used find and removed old sources libs from previous kernels
    did an update-grub just in case
    restarted did a prepare-kernel-sources did an update-initramfs
    than did apt-get update & apt-get upgrade & apt-get dist-upgrade
    and got the upgrade of initramfs went from ver .0 to .1
    and i no longer get error so i must have done something in all this correctly.

    I'm just happy there no longer error if it helps others that's just kool kool!!
