@thread opener: you're not alone, just happened to me also :P
I looked at the forum and I guess this forum has no room for my questions. looks like it's only backtrack and nothing else. even linux questions wouldn't be right since it's common stuff to find with google, but google is no big help converning linux questions since it doesn't explain the things behind some functions.
I for example tried to sort out duplicate entries from a wordlist, but it didn't just remove the lines, it needed as much space as the original file needs and I ran out of diskspace using sort
but I didn't see any hint on google during my several searches
so I asked here and bam, warning *eyeroll*
anyway, since backtrack is "the" linux distribution I thought it's a good place to ask for stuff related to it. I tried to make rainbow tables that I want to use with backtrack but my linux hardware is capped and on my big PC I only use VM which is also capped when it comes to openCL stuff I asked about a windows program to make the rainbow tables, but looking at the forum now and reading the sticky topics of what to post where I don't see any place here to ask this.
I also don't know any other forum to ask this so I guess I give up backtrack and play a game or something.
oh, some mod in this thread asked "what else could we do instead/beside warnings", in my case it would be helpful to know where to post, else this game might continue ... I'm also mod in some (strict) forums and we usually move a topic, beside warning the user, instead of warn, delete and keep quiet. I don't even see who warned me in the mail I got ...
