    Default Customising BackTrack Live DVD The Easy Way

    Customising BackTrack Live CD the Easy Way


    I’ve automated the customising process of the livecd to a convenient script which can be run on the BT4 Pre final (and future) release. This script sets up a build environment for you and drops you off in a modifiable chroot. You update, upgrade, add, remove packages, and then exit the shell. The script goes on to build a modified iso for you, including the updates and additions you introduced.
    The script is very basic, with many elements hard coded (for example, the iso name expected is bt4.iso), but is easily modifiable. In this video demonstration we install the broadcom wireless drivers, to support the Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01) card in Macbooks. In addition, we update our backtrack tools to the most recent versions.
    The script is available here: http://www.offensive-security.com/bt4-customise.sh

    I just want to thank you for taking the time to put together such a great and easy to use script / tutorial. It was easy to follow and worked flawlessly for me. Well, there was one small hitch. I needed to edit the script to match that of the .iso file name (bt4.iso). In the script it refers to the prefinal iso name (btisoname=bt4-pre-final.iso). I changed bt4-pre-final.iso to bt4.iso and all went smoothly. Hopefully this helps someone.

    Thanks for replying, however if you notice in the second paragraph under the above image it states " for example, the iso name expected is bt4.iso), but is easily modifiable."
    For others wanting to know how to change it see here.
