BackTrack Review:

This famous distro is a powerhouse of troublemaking, but in the right hands it can keep you on top of expolit, and ahead of the attackers. We review BackTrack 5 R3 Gnome Edition.

    installing a distro like gentoo or arch on the show: please don’t, the documentation is great people should read the guide or even watch youtube videos. I would love a line by line look at the original linux kernel source code here or on coder radio.

    Great to hear news about other distros, thanks!

    Is quite easy to set up an Automated postinstall script to configure ArchLinux from the base system to a fully functional desktop (xorg, drivers, DE, apps, configs, etc), is a script called AUI.

    Now for the install, well, pacstrap is very scriptable.

    I’ve been running systemd on arch for a couple of months now, and as far as i can say, is a really simplier to use and administrate the whole system, yes it haves a learning curve, but once you get a grip of sustemd you learn to love systemctl

    And, aboyu doing a live install of a distro (any distro not just arch or gentoo) is a bad idea. The installation proccess is well documented in the official wiki of the distros or in dedicated weblogs, or youtube videos, why waste so much time in doing something so well documented?

    great show, keep the good work

    all the advantages that people tout about systemd are bullshit.

    Great show as always by the way… 8)

  9. DF Says:

    I really should put more thought into these posts (or at least not be so hasty to hit the submit button!). But just my (last) two cents, you should’ve had “Stephen Fry” for the ‘uses Linux’ section 8)

    Great show. LAS rocks!

    Suggestion for more automated youtube downloads, that doesn’t require java:
