Backtrack 5 R2

FYI - if you didn't see it already, you can upgrade to R2 right now...

However, if you want fresh isos/images, you'll have to wait till March 1

Re: Backtrack 5 R2

great! i'm waiting for the image, cause upgrading seems to mess up the vertualbox guest additions because of the new kernel, and somehow i cant seem to get the additions to install for the new kernel...

Re: Backtrack 5 R2

Anyone know if R2 will have the drivers for the Alfa AWUS036NHR (b/g/n) wireless adapter? I've looked for a list of what's in R2 but I can only find the blanket statements.

Re: Backtrack 5 R2

Has anyone had success installing flash on the x64 version? I've been through every guide and forum post I've found so far and still no luck.

Re: Backtrack 5 R2

I don't have R2, but I had trouble installing it on R1.  I ran this script to update Backtrack, didn't expect it to fix Flash, and I just kind of assumed I couldn't get Flash to work on x64, then a couple of days later I noticed Flash was working.  I can't guarantee that this will fix it since I tried a whole bunch of things to fix Flash, but it's worth a shot.

I just did update all.

NOTE: I have not tried this on R2, nor have I tried to update R1 to R2 using this script.  I will at some point, I'm just busy now and can't afford to have things break :)

Re: Backtrack 5 R2

lol... finally figured it out.

You have to install the NON 64-bit flash plugin...

  Code:
wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/11.1.102.63/install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz
tar xvzf install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz
mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
mv libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

* current flash version

You can then remove the Usr directory that's extracted, you only need the .so file

Re: Backtrack 5 R2 on VirtualBox

FYI - if you're upgrading from BT1 to BT2 on a VirtualBox machine I recommend first making a clone or snapshot. There appears to be an issue in this setup with the virtualbox guest additions. I ended up having to upgrade virtualbox from .8 to .10 AND running some compile/link options to get the guest additions to build and install correctly. This is required if you want to do cross copy/pasting between host/guest and adaptive screen setting. Other than that I think R2 is working well, I'm anxious to try out the new tools.

Re: Backtrack 5 R2

DragonGorge,

That's strange, I updated my install of BT5 r1 to r2 on virtual box recently and had no issues with guest additions after.

Re: Backtrack 5 R2

The upgrade went fine but my first clue something was wrong was the fact that I couldn't adjust my screen resolution (Windows Host, Backtrack Guest). I could set it to stretch but that looks funky. I then noticed that I couldn't paste copy/paste to/from the Host/Guest. I don't know why some people have a problem and other don't but of the links below, only the last one resulted in a fix for me.

Re: Backtrack 5 R2

1. Does SET-Social Engineering Toolkits work well on BT5r2? I have problem with its handler listening my meterpreter payload.
2. I noticed that in /pentest/exploits/, there was no framework3 directory.

Above all, I have installed BT5r2.  ;D
