As far as I know, Backtrack4 pre-final is not one of the distributions that can autoconfigure the Internet access, if you’re connecting through a Windows’s station Internet Connection Sharing. That’s why, a while ago I wrote some scripts to setup that for me. I’m gonna post them here, so that I can have access to them in an easy way, and so that other people could benefit from them. Maybe they’ll help you configure your distro to work with ICS:
target_file = "/etc/network/interfacesx"
fh = open(target_file,"w")
interface_string = """
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
and script 2:
resolve_path = "/etc/resolv.conf"
fh = open(resolve_path)
lines = fh.readlines()
fh = open(resolve_path,"w")
for line in lines:
fh.write("#%s" % line)
Run them in any order you please. However, to get the connection to work, you have to also run this:
This would have probably been better as a tweet … but here it goes. Have you ever tried to install a module that uses something Moose-related? What do you think about the whole installation experience?
I f***ing hate that. I installed half of CPAN just to use one module. Perl guys, have you ever seen easy_install? Seen how little it takes to install something using it? You should do something about those installation times, I mean … come on! More than 30 minutes for a module? rly?
