    Talking Networking wireless

    i am beginner to backtrack. And i installed Backtrack 5 gnome 32 bit .After i installed and reboot and i typed startx . And then
    it says :

    (EE)VESA(0):no valid modes
    (EE)Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
    Fatal server error: no screens found.
    xinit:no such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
    xinit:no such process (errno 3): Serevr error

    Then i searched in forums.. and they asked to install my nvidia graphic card driver..
    My nividia card is Geforce 6150SE nForce 430.
    And a post said to type this command : sudo apt-get install nvidia current nvidia-current-modaliases nvidia-settings
    And when i did that. I get the following result:

    Failed to fetch http://32.repository.backtrack-linux...untu2_i386.deb
    Could not resolve ''

    Then.. i searched again and found with a post asking to find the networking card.And i did it with the command:lspci
    and i dont get my network controller but i get this one

    00:07.0 Bridge: nVidia Corporation MCP61 Ethernet (rev a2)

    And again i searched and found command which is : iwconfig
    and get these results

    lo no wireless extensions
    eth0 no wirelses extensions

    And i type the following command:airmon-ng
    and i get these result.

    Default Re: Networking wireless

    Let me answer by asking 2 questions: how would you classify your overall linux & networking skills? When you typed the commands, did you understand what they were doing?

    If you are a beginner to linux, I suggest practicing with Ubuntu linux first before trying BackTrack. BackTrack can be difficult for those who are beginners to linux & networking.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...
