    Red face BT4 will need some tweaking to to

    I have created an md5/sha1 cracking script(s) in perl htp:// and tried it on backtrack 4 pre with a result of arround 600,000 hashes/second. Switching to zenwalk 6.0 and running the same script gives me around 1,200,000 hashes/second. TWICE as fast . I thing the BT4pre kernel needs optimizing or runlevel be optimized. I think that there's a lot of modules loaded during bootup which mostly we don't use. A script could be created to load/unload those unused "things" and put BT4 into a "minimal state" for speed such as rainbowtable generation

    Its your script, not the kernel. The other application IS going faster then yours. How can you justify the kernel itself is slow.
