BackTrack 4 beta

"BackTrack is the most top rated linux live distribution focused on penetration testing. With no installation whatsoever, the analysis platform is started directly from the CD-Rom and is fully accessible within minutes.

It's evolved from the merge of the two wide spread distributions - Whax and Auditor Security Collection. [...]

Due to massive downloads and missing bandwidth, some servers might be unreachable and you need to hit either reload or click again on the download link."

"UNetbootin allows for the installation of various Linux/BSD distributions to a partition or USB drive, so it's no different from a standard install, only it doesn't need a CD. It can create a dual-boot install, or replace the existing OS entirely.

* Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista, or Linux, or a USB Drive. If you are having trouble with the Linux version, try the Windows version, it usually works better.
* A broadband internet connection to download the distribution packages (unless installing from pre-downloaded media, see below)
* Spare hard drive space to install the OS in (varies depending on distribution)


UNetbootin can install to your local hard disk or make a bootable liveUSB drive. It can also load floppy/hard disk images, or kernel/initrds, or (some) ISO (CD image) files, for installing other distributions. [...]

UNetbootin loads utilities or installs Linux/BSD to a partition or USB drive without a CD. It can use an existing disk image/kernel/initrd file, or download a supported distro or system utility (such as Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, FreeBSD, PartedMagic, etc.)

UNetbootin uses a Windows or Linux-based installer to install a small modification to the bootloader (bootmgr and bcdedit on Vista, grldr and boot.ini for NT-based systems, grub.exe and config.sys for Win9x, grub on Linux, or syslinux when installing to a USB drive), uses the bootloader to boot the desired distribution's installer or to load the system utility, no CD required. After the distribution has been installed, or once done using the system utility, the modification to the bootloader is then undone."

Install Ubuntu from a USB stick

"This pages describes how to install Ubuntu by copying the contents of the installation CD to an USB drive such as a memory stick (or flash drive) and making the USB stick bootable. This is handy for machines like ultra portable notebooks that do not have a CD drive but can boot from USB media.

The main steps are:

* Prepare the USB stick
* Boot the computer from your USB stick.
* Install Ubuntu as you would from a normal boot CD

Note: It is highly recommended to use the latest version of Ubuntu to prepare your USB stick."

Any way here goes the steps , now a mix of my trail & error, from this book and from other links :)"

Absolute 12.2.0.rc1

"What is Absolute?

Absolute is a customized Slackware distribution:

* Assembled to make installation and maintenance of Slackware easier.

* A relatively easy install (no package selection, also an "autoinstall" option that will partition and format the drive for you prior to install.)

* kernel build that is set to accept CPUs down to a Pentium-II and tuned for desktop performance.

You CAN run Absolute on a Pentium-II with 64 MB of RAM (although it would be fairly slow) -- but with at least 128 MB of RAM you can expect a very tolerable experience. P-3 or above with any more than 128MB RAM will allow you to zip along pretty well. And if you have a decent graphics chip/card, you'll feel like you have a new machine.

* Accepts packages made for same Slackware Version, so you can use Slackware software repositories."

Ubuntu InstallCDCustomization

"The process of customizing or "remastering" Ubuntu install CDs is not especially complex, but it is a little tedious and finicky. This page documents all the problems you might find; if it doesn't, please edit it!

The Ubuntu install CD (since Ubuntu 6.06, the 'alternative install' or 'server' CD) has three main parts: a boot-loader (ISOLINUX on AMD64/x86 systems, yaboot on PowerPC) and its configuration, which starts everything up; debian-installer (also known as d-i), which in this case is really a specialized miniature Ubuntu system; and a Debian-style repository structure, which is what takes up all that space on the disk in the directories "pool" and "dists". Building a new CD may involve modifications to all three parts."

Ubuntu LiveCDCustomization

"How to Customize the Ubuntu Desktop CD

You may wish to customize the Ubuntu Desktop (live) CD to:

* show off a particular application
* localize to a certain language
* remove software packages
* add software packages
* update software packages
* change system defaults (theme, icons, desktop background, panels, browser homepage, etc)

Cooperation-iws Development release

G4L v0.27

"G4L is a hard disk and partition imaging and cloning tool. The created images are optionally compressed and transferred to an FTP server or cloned locally. Version 0.27 adds ssh backup on local menu, and encryption on Network menu."


"Paludis is a multi-format package manager. It can currently be used on Gentoo and derivatives, using the ebuild and VDB repository formats, and on Exherbo using the exheres repository format. [...]

For the End User

* An optional new configuration system, making it much easier to operate upon groups of related packages, much easier to maintain multiple systems (or chroots) and much easier to set options on a per-package or per-repository basis.
* Performance. Paludis can be an order of magnitude faster than other package managers.
* Low dependency bloat. No Python, no big external crypto libraries.
* Native security (GLSA) integration.
* Proper multiple repository support, not constrained by a limited 'overlay' model.
* Support for repositories containing things other than ebuilds.
* License filtering.
* Hook scripts, for running code after a certain action occurs.
* User definable package sets.
* Ability to sync multiple repositories, natively, using SVN, CVS, Git etc.
* Ability to uninstall packages with dependencies, and safely remove unneeded packages.
* Ability to continue with a collection of installs after a failure, and to resume failed compiles far more flexibly than offered by Portage.
* Ability to see why a package is really being pulled in, rather than relying upon the rather crude '--tree' offered by Portage.
* Much improved output: --query makes it easy to get a useful summary of information about a package, and --pretend can be configured to show relevant information (e.g. USE flag descriptions and an explanation of why a package is being pulled in).
* Secure (un)installation of set*id files, preventing your system from being left vulnerable after having replaced a vulnerable application.
* Ability to use slot, use, repository and ranged version dependencies in dependency specifications.
* Ability to see all packages that need unmasking in one go, rather than one package at a time.
* Ability to automatically reinstall scm (svn, cvs etc.) packages after a given period (daily, weekly, ...).
* Ability to manage packages even where no ebuild is available.

For the Ebuild Developer

* Full and correct circular dependency resolution.
* Deep dependency resolution even when not upgrading everything.
* Support for 'experimental' (read: 'still not implemented in Portage') EAPI proposals (use dependencies, ranged version specs, -scm and -try version specs, src_uri arrows etc).
* Ability to deliver news items to the end user.
* Much more useful diagnostics.

For the Programmer

* Proper client / library separation.
* API documentation and code examples.
* A sane OO API.
* Consistent interfaces for different repository types.
* Test suites and extensive static checking, to check the impact of changes.
* Type safe interfaces, for catching programming errors at compile time.
* A choice of programming language for external tools."

Debian Pure Blends

"Debian Pure Blends - in short Blends if used clearly in the Debian internal context which makes "Pure" and "Debian" obvious - which were formerly known as Custom Debian Distributions (this name was confusing because it left to much room for speculation that this might be something else than Debian) try to provide a solution for special groups of target users with different skills and interests. Not only do they provide handy collections of specific program packages, but they also ease installation and configuration for the intended purpose.

Debian Pure Blends are not forks from Debian. As the new name says clearly they are pure Debian and just provide a specific flavour. So if you obtain the complete Debian GNU/Linux distribution, you have all available Debian Pure Blends included."

WeakNet Linux Assistant v1.0

"WeakNet Linux is an Ubuntu-based live DVD containing a variety of security tools. It is designed primarily for penetration testing, forensic analysis and other security tasks. The default GUI is Gnome. [...]

The tools i have selected are tools we use all the time here, as i said, If you find some that you want in it, please let me know. The image is about 1GB meaning; It will have to be on DVD, meaning; I can't host it here without risk of bandwidth dying! I need a place to upload it to. Some code written by WeakNet Labs Assistants from this site that are preinstalled:

* Easy-SSHd
* Web-Hacking-Portal v2.0
* Perlwd
* Netgh0st v3.0
* YouTube-Thief!
* Netgh0st v2.2
* DomainScan
* ADtrace
* Admin-Tool
* Tartarus v0.1
* and much more..

Also, I would like to take the opportunity to introduce: Perlwd. Perlwd is a perl script that uses Crypt::Md5 and Time::StopWatch. It is interpreted on the fly so could never match the speeds of say, John the Ripper. So I added that program to the list in the menu as well. Perlwd is great to experiment with and learn with. In the /code section of this domain you will find it and a brief introduction to md5/user's manual.

Code Runs from the Gnome-Terminal in some cases without the need to. This is because I was debuggin my GUI menu and I also want you to see what is exactly going on when a program is running. I'm sure the later versions are going to be less verbose with less terminal needed for running GUI apps.

The Distro will be available as soon as i can find some servers to host it for me. For now, here's a short video and some screen shots... enjoy :)

The LOGIN IS "assistant" the PASS is "weaknet", the SUDO PASS is "weaknet" and the root PASS is "weaknet2" The password for the servers is "weaknet" also. Thanks for updating me J Migatos!"

* Get the grml iso
* Mount the iso loopback (e.g. mount -o loop grml_small_0.4.iso /mnt/grml-iso)
* Make FAT16 filesystem on the usbstick (e.g. mkfs.vfat -F 16 -v /dev/sda1)
* Mount the usbstick (e.g. mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/external1)
* Copy everything to the usbstick (e.g. cp -r /mnt/grml-iso/* /mnt/external1).
* Move all files from /mnt/external1/boot/isolinux/ (mv /mnt/external1/boot/isolinux/* /mnt/external1) and the files linux26 and the minirt.gz (since grml1.1: initrd.gz!) from the directory named like the grml-flavour (/boot/grml, /boot/grmlmedium, /boot/grml64,...) to root of usb-stick
* Umount the usbstick and the grml-iso
* Run syslinux on the usbstick (e.g. syslinux /dev/sda1)
* Check if the usbstick has an valid mbr, else dd if=mbr.bin of=/dev/sda (mbr.bin is in the syslinux package, usually installed in /usr/lib/syslinux/mbr.bin)
* may need to set the bootable flag using parted (or fdisk)"

Multiboot USB Pen

"It’s possible to get multiboot starting with grml 1.1, grml64 0.2 and grml-medium[64]. This might be useful if you need a 32bit together with a 64bit version on just one medium like a USB pen.

First of all take the 32bit version and install it to your USB pen using grml2usb. Then proceed as follows:"

New TurnKey Linux releases feature dramatic usability improvements

TurnKey Linux is a family of free, easy to use, lightweight, installable Live CDs (based on Ubuntu and Debian) which are built for specific usage scenarios.

The TurnKey Linux project is pleased to announce a new batch of Live CD releases featuring significant usability improvements.

Our main focus in the past weeks since we launched has been to try and figure out how to dramatically improve the usability of the handful of appliances we have released so that they appeal to a much wider audience (e.g., not everybody likes mucking around with the command line).

We are proud to announce that recently released versions of the Lamp, Joomla, Drupal5 appliances now feature:

  • a beautiful web administration interface (Mac OS X themed)
  • easy to use configuration console (written from scratch in Python)
  • auto-login while in demo/live mode
  • root password configuration during installation

In addition to numerous other improvements, updates and bugfixes.

Detailed information and screenshots are available in the appliances section on the website, along with their respective release notes.

Launchpad blueprints for this release can be found at:
