    Default Installing Ubuntu Reposiories on BackTrack 4?

    I am wondering if I am able to install from standard Ubuntu 9.10 or 10.04 (when released) Repositories on a BackTrack 4 (final) Hard Drive install? I want to use BackTrack4 as my primary OS, but I am guessing I may want some other programs that I use from the Ubuntu Repositories as well. I would like to install them from the Repositories for consistency, if possible. So basically I am asking if I add Ubuntu repositories into BackTrack4, will they work and/or will I run into any major issues? I know its Ubuntu based, but wasn't sure if the kernel was different or other issues which may cause serious issues.

    There is no support for that here. Support for bt4 is at the new forum site.
    BackTrack Linux.
    However you will not get support for the above there either.
    But it can be done.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
