I ran into this as well with Kali 1.0.3 (amd64) on VirtualBox. I encountered the error at the end of the install as well as on reboot. Things I tried: I enabled PAE/NX (default was off), but did not effect a change. I noticed that the error was issued by the window manager. CTRL-ALT-F2 will bring to a text console. Using df -h, I could see that my ...

The fastest way to crack the WEP key on your router would be to factory reset it (if you also don't have the login details), then reconfigure it with a key that you know. I would recommend using WPA this time.

locate uses a database called locatedb. It's normally updated by system cron jobs. If the DB hasn't been updated, it'll show non-existent or new files/directories. you can force an update with the updatedb command. See this link among others.

Hyper-V does not support USB redirection. VMWare ESXi does from v4.1. I personally needed USB redirection and had to use a commercial USB redirection software USB Over Network. This software works by redirecting the USB connection from the host machine (Windows 8.1) to the client (VM) over TCP/IP

If you have USB 3.0 it's not compatible with backtrack. Uninstall the Intel USB 3.0 host program from the control panel, then open device manager and for all usb hubs (unless you know which usb port your wifi card is connected to) right click on each and select 'Update Driver software', then click the 'Browse My computer' option, then 'let me pick from a ...

locate is based on a database which is usually updated once a day via cron. Force an update: run updatedb and your locate iceweasel will return up-to-date results.

you are doing it correctly. VMWARE images will see the macbook's wireless as an ethernet connection. this is expected, and can't be helped. see above. the difference will be utilizing actual hardware vs emulating a system in VMWARE. backtrack is built on ubuntu, so you could in theory follow many of the tutorials for installing ubuntu bare metal on a ...

Unless you specifically state a range to use, netdiscover will scan for common networks, so this would include 192.168.0.0/16. An ARP request is broadcast at layer 2, so even though the backtrack PC is on a different IP network to the voip box, the arp request will still be seen and replied to. The request would be in the form of an ARP Probe, which does ...

If you know how to Compile Software from the Source then you will not have any problems. But are you sure that you want to use BackTrack as a Primary OS? the distro is made for penetration testing so you'll find Lots and Lots of software that you might not need.

From the article 0.0.0.0 : Computers normally show an address of 0.0.0.0 when they are not connected to a TCP/IP network. Having this address, a computer cannot be reached or communicate with any other devices over IP. TCP/IP software applications also use 0.0.0.0 as a programming technique to monitor network traffic from any valid IP address. ...

Download VMWare Player (http://www.vmware.com/products/player) and you should be able to run it. Otherwise you can try to add it to virtualbox by creating a new guest client and using the VMWare image as the hard drive image for the new guest client (don't create a new hard drive).

The reason why airmon-ng is coming up empty-handed in the guest is that you do not have control of the wireless card, in the guest.The hypervisor sets up a connection that allows you to share your internet connection, but it does so by creating a virtual ethernet interface which is bridged with the host extant connection. You can double check my words by ...

I don't think that you can activate snap without compositing (Gnome3 classic). It does come out of the box on full Gnome3 (I think) and definately does with Cinnamon. Anyway, I have written a script which essentially does the same thing. It will not work automatically, that is it won't be activated just by dragging a window to the edge of the screen, but ...

Make sure that the interface shows up when you run /sbin/ifconfig -a. If it's there, make sure the name of the device hasn't changed from eth0. If there is no interface there, check your virtual machine settings to ensure that the bridge is still configured. Are the vmware-tools installed? Also remember that ifup/ifdown, /etc/init.d/networking, service ...

You laptop's built-in wireless network will appear as a plain ethernet adapter in BT. You can type dhclientin a BT terminal to get a new DHCP address if needed. If you are looking to do packet-injection, then you will most likely need an external USB wifi card that is capable of doing packet-injection (google around for this). When you plug in the usb ...

If you don't just want to brute force the password, it may be worthwhile paying for CloudCracker - https://www.cloudcracker.com/ You can upload the NTLM hashes there and get them to perform the crack. That said, this means you are handing over the passwords for your machine.

There is currently not a direct way of doing this (for many reasons), and to clarify a littly bit let me expalin what your Galaxy is doing. First, Backtrack is NOT an OS. Backtrack is a suite of linux tools that can be used for pentesting (pentration testing). The 'Backtrack OS' that can be downloaed and installed (like you and I both have dual booting ...
