    Default Can`t install backtrack 5 kde r2.

    Hey guys, I`m a begginer at linux and I`m reading a book about Backtrack 5 but I can`t install it. I am using a macbook pro running bootcamp, and trying to run the backtrack in a oracle virtualbox.

    Att, Victor.

    I'm confused: are you trying to run BT in a virtualbox VM in OSX, or trying to dualboot through bootcamp?

    2 thoughts are:

    • Install rEFIt (to simplify dual-booting on macs)
    • Use Parallels (easier than virtualbox in OSX I find)

    In rare ocassions, when using unsupported video cards, or after a VMware tools install, X won`t start. To fix this you may try:

    Reconfiguring the X server package, you can reset Xorg configurations with the following command:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    Or for x64:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# rm /root/.kde/cache-*
    Sometimes you may need also to remove the cache folders from /var/tmp:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# rm -rf /var/tmp/kdecache-*
