HI All,

If this is a big  hassle just yell, I had other plans... you sidetracked me

Plus if I'm yelling... cause I'm an ass about this stuff...  That means
there are  probably others who say nothing and give up...

And yes I researched your site and others and couldn't find a  way to do it
with out having to mess with the kernel and I'm just not ready for that
yet... soon though ;)

Toshiba is an a105-s101, if you need reports yell but damn it seems like it
would be easy after all the ready i did because it all comes down to that
equation... probably oversimplify it...  everything touches everything else

ramzswap compcache

Might be a good link to check out on

In case not clear this was regarding blackbuntu, I will also be dual or
tri-booting and testing virtual scenarios on 3 to four laptops with a
router, switch and all hard wired sp as to harden security along with other
measures.  Other than bios which I will find a solution for soon... maybe
coreboot(linuxboot), seabios, smartboot, efi, uefi, rxboot, marsboooot(just

I was hacked badly just recently which required changing my life
basically... I had to DOD wipe drive on everything. change bank accts etc...

It was fun to watch and educational and I probably stayed around too long...
It's not often as a budding pentester, hacker, coder etc... that you get to
watch it real time happening.... for many days and accessing my admin email
in windows which i never considered to send reports.... If I encrypted a
profile, a new one would pop up etc... It kept morphing files, disguising
executable's and then they would check in once or twice a day etc...
Wireshark and other scanners caught most of it... crazy to watch a netstat
-a -o  go from listening to all of a sudden running regex strings cause you
changed things to mess with them and then the ultimate yu.pwn.xxx.xxx
Chinese my guess but who know's.... looking through the files... definitely
foreign as per english was weak, not that mines any better lol ;)

I was chasing a bad person and walked into the wrong building lol...

He was a pedophile and conning people out of there money as a financial
guru/mentor though so it was worth it, and I backup my machines daily and
image them weekly...  He was caught if that's any consolation.

I just decided that if I'm going to do this kind of work I needed to harden
my systems and your distro magically popped up so would like to get it on
all machines as the first distro do to it's ability to do other then
pentesting... guess I could of chose a non pentesting distro but hey if you
got blackbuntu and then BT... still waiting for new release and then one
other on each machine that is different so as to be more fluent gnu/linux
wise... or just linux wise, maybe a totally linux on one...

If I can't pull this off then the new Debian 6 will be my main as everything
is built off from it, just not as convenient to set up.

My next purchase will probably be a hardware firewall and then a bubble to
surround myself ;)

Linux in general and then with built in defense isolating different groups
of components etc... Just seemed where I needed to be... windoze too full of
holes that get fixed too slowly.

Help, running out of time to get this network up...

On trying to install on a Toshiba with less than 500 MG Ram I get a fatal
error... It has to do with restrictions that you put in place and i can't
find them so guess they are in kernel or lib some where  like " if ram is
<=500 then term ramzswap" which then totally disengages my install.  Please
remove this requirement or lower it or maybe another work around.

Thought about checking newest kernels 3.0.1 OR 3.0.1 rc1 as they look like
they address this or compcache.

In my mind it would just be simpler to lower the ram requirement and I'll
add swap and just tell me where to teleport it from lol ;)
