I have installed backtrack 5 r3 on my MacBook Pro 15' (Processor 2.66 GHz Intel core i7 ; Memory 4GB 1067 MHz DDR8) via Virtual Box. When I open the wick network manager an error appears " Could not connect the wick's D-bus interface. Check the wick log for error messages." Then it opens up and scans it says wired-default and no wireless networks found. I installed the VBox guest additions.
At some point i tried compiling a few programs on mac os x 10.7 (Lion), and i had no problem running them, except when I tried to use hydra "hydra -l admin -p admin -e ns -t 10 -f -s 192.168.1.1 http-get /
It came up with 0 valid passwords every time. But it worked with hydra from backtrack. I also compiled nmap with worked fine but ettercap didn't get me any logged passwords or usernames.
I would prefer to use backtrack but I can't get it to find wireless networks or get it into full screen mode.
So if you could tell me what I should do to get the wireless networks to be available, if it is possible and how to get a higher resolution to get a better full screen mode, if backtrack doesn't support the mac hardware what I should do to get hydra and ettercap working on my mac.
I appreciate all your help in advance
