I wanted to use the new repository for Backtrack 5 to install some of the awesome sauce on Ubuntu. But to do so you need the repo links and key which is no where to be found on the intraweb… however if you already have a BT5 up and running all the info is there, just look under /etc/apt/ and you will see a file called trusted.gpg, you can import the key on Ubuntu using Software Sources under the Authentication tab and for Gnome 32bit the repository on my BT are:
deb http://all.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
deb http://32.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
deb http://64.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
deb http://source.repository.backtrack-linux.org revolution main microverse non-free testing
I would image 64bit is the same just change the 32 to 64.. maybe I don’t know.. Just use software sources to put them in. Note, its not recommended. A lot of the packages are patched and optimized for BackTrack. “We cannot more strongly recommend against this action because BackTrack tools are built with many custom features and libraries. We have no way of knowing how they will preform on a non Backtrack distribution. If you decide on this course of action you do so at your own risk and the BackTrack team will not offer any support.” You’ve been warned. Doesn’t matter to me, I usually bork mine atleast once a month doing something dumb, but that’s the fun part, trying to fix it.
If you want a list of all the packages installed on BackTrack, just run “dpkg -l > bt5.txt” from the Backtrack terminal, or just download mine from here, it’s BT5 Gnome 32bit package list. It’s not the default however, I made this list after I had added a few things like bleachbit, synaptic package manager, and some gnome utils..
