Kali Linux 1.0.6 is Released some time ago and am a big fan of Kali Linux. So i wanted to upgrade from version 1.0.5 to 1.0.6 but as i did

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

The upgrade speed was extremely slow like hell, i have good connection but the reason is the Kali linux HTTP server is overloaded.

So what i did was change the apt-get sources list from below

vi /etc/apt/sources.list

Screenshot from 2014-04-05 20:53:44Now execute the following commands and you will see significant speed improvement !!! Enjoy 🙂

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

cheers :J

Cuda on Backtrack 5 R2

After some pyrit problem this is guide to install cuda on Backtrack 5 R2. This guide is to configure cuda drivers and running parallel processing.

Start by preparing your kernel sources for the Nvidia driver installation:

root@bt:~# prepare-kernel-sources
root@bt:~# cd /usr/src/linux
root@bt:~# cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/

Download Nvidia drivers according to your CPU architecture

Make sure you are not in an X session (log out to console), and run the Nvidia driver installer.

Next, download the CUDA toolkit, according to your CPU architecture:  (32 bit)  (64 bit)

During CUDA toolkit installation give install path folder to /opt.Now Configure your environment variables so that the nvcc command works. You can do this by appending the following lines in your /root/.bashrc file:

export PATH

Then run:

root@bt:~# source /root/.bashrc
root@bt:~# ldconfig

Now check if everything is setup correctly

root@bt:~# which nvcc
root@bt:~# nvcc -V
nvcc: NVIDIA (R) Cuda compiler driver
Copyright (c) 2005-2011 NVIDIA Corporation
Built on Thu_Jan_12_14:36:13_PST_2012
Cuda compilation tools, release 4.1, V0.2.1221

Now Nvidia driver and CUDA toolkit is install lets check it by pyrit.

Following command will create main directory tree for installation with svn support.

svn checkout pyrit

We have just created a dir /pyrit_svn.This will install libs and other stuff that are needed:

apt-get install libssl-dev
apt-get install scapy
apt-get install python-dev

Going to construct pyrit

cd pyrit/pyrit
python build
python install
root@bt:~# cd ../../
root@bt:~# cd pyrit/cpyrit_cuda && python build && python install

Run a benchmark to see that everything works as expected:

root@bt:~# pyrit benchmark
Pyrit 0.4.1-dev (svn r308) (C) 2008-2011 Lukas Lueg
This code is distributed under the GNU General Public License v3+

Running benchmark (63787.8 PMKs/s)... \ 

Computed 63787.82 PMKs/s total.
#1: 'CUDA-Device #1 'GeForce GTX 295: 11558.7 PMKs/s (RTT 3.0)
#2: 'CUDA-Device #2 'GeForce GTX 295: 10912.5 PMKs/s (RTT 2.9)
#3: 'CUDA-Device #3 'GeForce GTX 295: 10632.1 PMKs/s (RTT 3.0)
#4: 'CUDA-Device #4 'GeForce GTX 295: 11654.7 PMKs/s (RTT 2.9)
#5: 'CUDA-Device #5 'GeForce GTX 295: 10868.9 PMKs/s (RTT 2.9)
#6: 'CUDA-Device #6 'GeForce GTX 295: 10322.8 PMKs/s (RTT 3.0)
#7: 'CPU-Core (SSE2)': 500.7 PMKs/s (RTT 2.7)
#8: 'CPU-Core (SSE2)': 508.9 PMKs/s (RTT 2.8)

Tada!! Cuda GPU is enabled.

To remove pyrit remove following directories and files


I ran the locate command to find these... ~#locate pyrit

In Case you see some core missing it is due to because one core is reserved.So Dont worry if one core is missing during
That's all..see ya!!!

The release of the BackTrack 5 R2 kernel has arrived with a brand new 3.2.6 kernel and a tons of new and updated tools and security fixes, BT5 R2 will provide a more stable and complete penetration testing environment than ever before. I will post more on upgrading new tools but for now though, here’s how to get the new kernel and all of the updated package:

1. Update and upgrade your BT5 (R1) installation:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install beef

Once that’s done, you should already have the new kernel installed as well as any last updates we have for the official R2 release. You need to reboot to have the 3.2.6 kernel kick in.

During the last upgrade you’ll be asked about file revision updates. Make sure to always keep the locally installed file. Feel free to press “Enter” and accept all the defaults.

Note: if some problem comes of X wont start and showing an error for Nvidia go below process:

Nvidia driver install on BT5r2 Kernel 3.2.6

cd /usr/src/linux
cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/

gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

>>  blacklist vga16fb

blacklist nouveau

blacklist rivafb

blacklist nvidiafb

blacklist rivatv

then save and close file

Now, remove old nvidia driver

apt-get –purge remove nvidia-*


echo options nouveau modeset=0 | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau-kms.conf

vi /boot/grub/grub.cfg

inserted ‘nouveau.modeset=0’ just before ‘vga=791’ (if two display= 2 insertion)

esc :wq!



Now,install latest Nvidia from its site for your linux architecture

sh <> –kernel-source-path /usr/src/linux-source-3.2.6

or install automatically

add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates

apt-get update && apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-current-modaliases nvidia-settings


2. OPTIONAL – Once rebooted, log back in, and get your pretty splash screen back.


On the next reboot, you should see the red console splash screen appear.

3. Verify that you are running a 3.2.6 kernel:

uname -a

You should see something like “Linux bt 3.2.6 …”

4. Feel free to install any or all of the new tools featured in BackTrack 5 R2:

apt-get install pipal findmyhash metasploit joomscan hashcat-gui golismero easy-creds pyrit sqlsus vega libhijack tlssled hash-identifier wol-e dirb reaver wce sslyze magictree nipper-ng rec-studio hotpatch xspy arduino rebind horst watobo patator thc-ssl-dos redfang findmyhash killerbee goofile bt-audit bluelog extundelete se-toolkit casefile sucrack dpscan dnschef

5. Add the new security updates repository to /etc/apt/sources.list, and run another upgrade.

echo “deb revolution main microverse non-free testing” >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

6. Some of the newly installed services will be set to start on boot. We like disabling these as needed:

/etc/init.d/apache2 stop
/etc/init.d/cups stop
/etc/init.d/winbind stopupdate-rc.d -f cups remove
update-rc.d -f apache2 remove
update-rc.d -f winbind remove

And…you’re done!

see ya!!! cheers 🙂

Taking Self pic or family pics is tough to manage but with Swivl you dont have to worry about anything it is a personal robotic cameraman that’s smart enough to pan and tilt on its own, keeping whoever is holding its electronic marker in the frame.

Perfect for webcam use and self-recording, its electronic marker also has a microphone on board, keeping audio clear no matter where you walk in the room.

Swivl will be available by the end of April for $159.


Here is a masterpiece of miniature mechanical and fluid engineering.

Well this watch was not shown at CES 2012, but because it’s so downright weird and cool. It’s the first of its kind. It uses tiny pistons that move a bellows, which then compresses a glowing green liquid that indicates hours, minutes and seconds.

So there you have it, wearing a miniature pump on your wrist, showing you the time that flows through tubes. You start the whole thing in motion by winding it up, just like old-fashioned watches. Astonishing.

This crazy geek stuff is out of range of whooping $45,000.

This year many electric cars are comming out and for this Fulton Innovation showed off its wireless charger at CES 2012, which will working with one part of it buried in the floor of your garage, and the other attached to the underside of an electric car — in this case, a Tesla Roadster.

Any drawback ? Effeciency of such chargers is less than wired charger it will be 89% by the end of year.

for reference : eCoupled for more wireless charging products and dealer info.

The Fisker Karma hybrid electric car is just getting into production, and its makers are taking the car on a U.S. tour to show it off. The car is inspired from cheetah design and have much better solar charging performance than Toyota Prius.The acceleration is of 0-60 mph in 6.3 sec and have a driving range of 50 miles in electric mode and 300 miles in total hybrid mode. The super luxurious interior and sporty exterior of the Fisker Karma is certainly not cheap, with prices starting at $100,000.

In this post, I will explain how to fix waiting for sound system to respond on Linux backtrack 5 Revolution. This problem happen because every time when we login to backtrack as root. Therefore we can not change the sound volume. If you have the same problem, follow the steps bellow:

1. Go to system -> Preferences → Startup Applications.

Make sure  that you click on Tab “Startup programs” and then Click on “Add”.

2. Display a new small window and you will be asked to fill:

Name           : Pulseaudio daemon

Command  : /usr/bin/pulseaudio

Comment   : Start the sound daemon.

3. Restart your Computer or Laptop.

cheers enjoy !!!
