As promised, we are releasing a BackTrack 4 R1 information security and penetration testing development build to the public for hardware testing. This is an unofficial build which is meant to help the BackTrack Dev team to assess any hardware incompatibilities with the new kernel we have put in place. This is NOT an official release, however we do need your input as to what works and what doesn’t. We are not interested in tracking broken applications as much as hearing how your hardware is fairing – particularly wireless cards, injection support, etc.
PLEASE NOTE : We will be dedicating a SINGLE THREAD in the backtrack forums for hardware issue reports with the R1 release. Forum posts outside of this thread will be deleted.
The testing kernel has been updated in our development repositories. If you want to test it out, you can uncomment the appropriate line in sources.list, and then issue an apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. We ask that you test our new kernel and post your hardware compatibility observations in our forums.
