There's a website around... I'm trying to think of the link, OH! I found it!
where can I find more info on the subject?
I felt like bending the bars back, and ripping out the window frames and eating them. yes, eating them! Leaping, leaping, leaping! Colonics for everyone! All right! You dumb*sses. I'm a mental patient. I'm *supposed* to act out!
I've searched it, all I got was this thread back.
The benefits our you don't have to locate and download every tool that comes with backtrack. But its totally up to you m8 and not trying to sound blunt but lets keep this post to people with genuine questions about this upgrade.
well today i decided to go for the next step.
upgrade the Linux source to the latest one ( 22.214.171.124 )
( see previous posts, i was already successful in upgrading to Slackware 12 126.96.36.199 )
i did this by using slapt-get
i googled some about how to upgrade my kernel ( 2 previous attempts resulted in kernel panics)
but hey, i'm a noob, so it was do you expect.....
anyway i tried it with all the knowledge i had gained thanx to DR_green, google, and many other sources.
after carefully looking at what happened , it looked like everything went successfully until i tried to make an initrd, i noticed there were now modules...
so upgrading these as well , and as final part, reconfiguring lilo, i added just to be sure every possible kernel, and started with the Huge version,
and after a reboot i was waiting for a kernel panic, but it never showed up.
so now the next thing to find out is if it works with the other kernels as well
next to that , i cannot inject packets anumore with my zydas usb device
but also that is for a later time.
for now it's time to go to work.
thnx for all the help provided in this topic
edit: ( still not off for work)
i tested the generic kernel, and it works like a charm, next to that i found an error that has been there since the 188.8.131.52 kernel, it is that from graphical interfase i cannot shutdown properly.
it goes down, the screen turns empty, and then my cpu fan starts making noise... i left it like that for half an hour, but still no shutdown.
does anyone have any idea where to look for ?
the same happens if i manually enter into runlevel 6 ( init 6 )
Hey cool setup you got there.
I am having a problem however.
When run the command (for the second time after removing all old packages),
And start up the session with "startx"Code:installpkg /slackware-12.0/slackware/*/*.tgz
I am unable to connect to the internet.
And I'm kinda lost as to how to fix it.
Thanks for any help.
Whats your error?? You can't get online because you are missing wlassistant? or driver troubles?
