Ophcrack Issue

Recommended Posts

Hey I'm new here and have never used a pw cracker before. I am seeing the following when running Ophcrack, 3.4.0 on a Windows 7 box. I have installed on a USB. I see the GUI and it runs automatically and manually but I get these results:

Starting Ophcrack

3 hashes have been found in the encrypted SAM found in /media/sda2/Windows/System32/config/

Did not find the requested table(s) /media/sdb1/tables/vista_proba_free/table0.bin

The passwords have been saved in /tmp/ophcrack.txt

It's not finding the tables and I am not sure WHERE or HOW to put them where they should be. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Digininja,

Unfortunately the links offered no help. I look on the USB drive and see the table it references (vista_proba_free).  Ophcrack looks like it is trying to find it in the wrong place (/media/sdb1/tables/vista_proba_free/table0.bin) and I don't know HOW or Where to put the table vista_proba_free so it can find it. I don't know what syntax or where /media/sdb1/tables/vista_proba_free/table0.bin. Is it looking for it on the USB? If so, it is definitely there. If it needs to be mounted, I don't know how to do that.

It's not trying to crack the password yet because it can't find the database. It doesn't appear to be looking on the USB or if it is it is looking in the wrong place because it is there.

Is this a slitaz install? With the script that upon boot finds all necesaary info.

Sometimes you have to dog foe yo self. The script told u where the info is .

Bigbiz, I do dig for myself. While I appreciate the response, it isn't working because I can't get the Ophcrack GUI to run. When I try to start it from the menu I receive "X Server not running". I'm not a Linux guy but I tried to do "startx" logged in as root and I get the same error. I'd love to include screen caps here but apparently the forum doesn't allow it.

The only card I have is what is on the laptop. Yes it is Slitaz. It boots and comes up with the menu but can't run the GUI because of the X server error.

You might need to install syslinux to thumbdrive if you cant even get the boot menu.
