    I broke 10 posts and all I got was this lousy title!
  1. Haha, wow that's retro, and not the good kind of retro, It looks old, like the guys said, Win95 style. Very nice colour scheme, grey and blue. Takes me back. KDE will do me fine, I think. If not I'll go for XFCE.
  2. Yeah subversion sounds like what I want, haha. I'm away on business at the moment so I can't try it out, but I'll take a look around a do a little more research then with any luck as soon as I hit home next week I'll be able to get something working, cheers everyone.
  3. It's more for reports and things like that so I can sync with a main server because I use a few machines and they aren't necassarily always connected to the main network at once, I'm on the road a lot. A NAS would be good if I was always connected. But it's just for when I'm on the move I can update reports and things then when I reconnect to the network it pushes them to the other machines, or to a central machine where the others can grab it from when they connect. Chances are the files will be being changed everyday, so I just wanted to see if there was an automated solution rather than me having to push the files to my server manually every time I connected to the network after a change. That explain it a little better? Oh and I totally never though of building my own NAS, I may just have to give that a go just as a side project haha.
  4. Hey, I've got a few systems and I was wondering what the easiest way to setup having a shared folder on all systems would be. I don't mean just setting up a share on one of the systems. I mean like having a copy of a folder on each of the systems and when one gets updated (on boot) have the others copy the updated files to their folder. Based on something like last modified time. Any ideas on what the best method for this would be? Any software already available for this? I had a look around but I couldn't anything already made. Anyone got anything to help? Edit[0]: Forgot to say, I run Slackware.
  5. Well, KNOPPIX is considered a distro and that's surely just a LiveCD, after all isn't a LiveCD just a distro working with live scripts, strip them out and it's a full system. I didn't say put Backtrack on a USB pen I said get the USB version. That's two different things, the USB is an extended version which includes things like compiz, which I believe to be an incredible benefit if your working on either a small screen or using a touchscreen, both I personally do regulary. Surely the fact of using the USB version wouldn't change this at all. Well personally I do use my customised version of Backtrack for fieldwork, just for convinience more than anything, and I don't believe that it can be easily looked at to see that it's backtrack. The only reference I see on my system is the desktop image and the submenu in the KMenu, the desktop background has been changed, I don't actually like the default, and the KMenu seubmenu is now called PenTest, not because I wanted to hide that it's backtrack, just because I have more software in there that's not part of the backtrack suite. Plus a revamp of the GUI layout to fit into my own preferences and some gucci window borders and it looks totally different, so no googling its name then, From what I've seen of the system backtrack is basically SLAX with a load of software stripped out and more put on. Why would you go to the effort of doing that yourself when you could just modify the existing system, surely that's just inefficient. And why wouldn't you want to use something that's branded as a hackers tool? Surely that's what he's after with a hacking distro? Personally if I was looking for a hacking distro I would want something with all the tools preloaded, That was easy for me to load more on myself That is easily customisable Boots quickly and is live so that I can put it on a USB pen and take it with me, just in case, but also one that works well as a full install so I can keep in on my pentesting system permanently for "field work". Does backtrack not do all those? Sorry to say, I think you are, or am I?
  6. How do you mean, get your webhost to download a set of images? Just you mean just to your online space to keep as a backup, or for displaying on a website? Would you want it to download them and store them for display? Or just link to them and add a page whenever you update your flickr site?
  7. Haha, I can't believe that Backtrack was only mentioned once. I thought it would have stood more ground here. I personally like Backtrack 3 and I use the USB version, Which is strange for me I tend to prefer to build my own distribution and keep it nice and small with only what I use. But backtrack is based on Slackware, which is otherwise my personal preference, and (the USB version) is only a Gig when compressed and only something like (don't hold me to it) 2.8GB when extracted. So that's nice and small, I've modified Backtrack a lot myself though I would think it to be a good place to start for a pen testing machine.
  8. Personally I've never come across this myself. So just some musings. Have you tried manually changing the MAC of wmaster0? Have you tried not using DHCP and assigning IPs manually? I'd have a play with my own sys to try and get some more answers but I'm running 'dows at the moment so I can't. Have a go at the above and I'll be back on *nix later so I can have more of a go later if you need more help. When you say using the new kernel as apose to an older kernel do you mean you rebuilt your kernel or did you reinstall your OS with an updated version and now have the new kernel?
  9. Yeah I liked Just For Fun. If you liked it, try "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" - Eric S. Raymond (O'Reilly) ISBN:0596001088 It's about the Sucess of both Linux and Open Source as a whole and is basically musings on why this is the case and why Open Source is such a good thing. Thought you might like that as well.
  10. Haha, I don't think people should doubt girlfriends so much. I've got my laptop set up in a very custom way (running Slackware by the way), certainly not the INTERNET/WORD PROCESSOR style setup seen above and after a few goes she's getting used to it now haha, that is to say she can find Firefox in the KMenu and she's found Pidgin, She still can't shut it down though. "Click the black icon at the bottom, now type 'poweroff', no, 'poweroff' one word. The black one...at the bottom....no, not on the bottom of the keyboard on the screen....no...God! I'll do it!" =]
  11. GParted is fine for Resizing and even moving partitions with OS already on, I've never had a problem with it. I used it initially when I was switching to Linux to resize my Windows drive to make room for *nix and 'dows never had any problems with that. Just remember to plug the damn thing in when your playing with your partitions, I've forgotten THAT before haha!
  12. When it comes to resizing partitions and generally playing around with your partition table I would recommend GParted, GParted LiveCD GParted - LiveUSB "GParted is an industrial-strength package for creating, destroying, resizing, moving, checking and copying partitions, and the filesystems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging)." It's a live system so it generally makes life convenient, plus it comes under the GPL.
