Problem With Installing Backtrack On Usb


Flex

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I tried to install backtrack on my USB stick.

I used "unetbootin" for doing this.

I downloaded the Backtrack-Final ISO, not the VMWare one and installed it on the USB (16GB).

I booted the USB and selected "Start backtrack in Text Mode", and typed in "startx".

Startx should startup an Graphical Interface but in my case it didn't. I said: "startx: Command not found".

Did I do anything wrong? Please tell me

Thanks :)

hello Flex....

I think i got the problem.... when you Command BT to start in text mode, the Graphical modules don't get loaded.Try booting with backtrack with 1024 x 768 or use init methods.... hope it works for you ,do let me know

regards.

I remember something of an issue with unetbootin on the newer backtrack's where its trying to point to incorrect files. Might be the problem. Depends on version of untebootin too.

Did you follow: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/tutorials/usb-live-install/

I have BT4 on an SD-Card whacked in my EEE - it is bt4-final.iso. I too used unetbootin however I did update bt4 and add a couple of scripts with the bt4 customise sript. I just booted it using the text mode and being the live version it automatically logs in then ran startx and KDE fired up. You don't state whether it's the Backtrack 4 final iso your trying?
