    Unhappy Backtrack 5 R2

    I heard that backtrack 5 R2 is releasing on March 2012, im currently using Backtrack 5 R1, ... the question is , can i use apt-get upgrade and dist-upgrade to update bt5 r1 to r2? i mean without a fresh install of Backtrack 5 R2?

    It's probably overkill, but anytime a new BackTrack version comes out, I save the stuff I want, then wipe & reinstall.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    I do the same thing. Probably not needed, but at least I know I have a clean freshly installed copy of BT. This also helps rule out upgrade issues as a cause for possible new bugs.

    never mind...
    /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg sorted it

    Not entirely sure what you're saying. But I assume we'll have official word on BackTrack 5 R2 soon.
