Backtrack4 lags like hell!


Hi,

i installed backtrack a week ago,and till now i have faced like 1000+1 problems in it! neways coming to the point,the copy of backtrack4 installed in my computer is very slow! it takes ages to load the pages(mozilla firefox).any idea on what could be done! is it giving me the problem because my system resources are less or sumthin:

vendor_id : GenuineIntel

model : 3
model name : Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz
stepping : 4

1 giga ram!



thanks in advance

"backtrack" isn't a distro to surf the web... it may have only basic video drivers/modules

"no resourse suffice!, more resource need backtrack"

On my P4 3.4Ghz 1GB bt4 runs slow and freezes sometimes, so I'm guessing your 2.40GHz is clearly not enough. But since you are an 1337 hacker you should be able to overclock your machine to work five times faster, shouldn't you?

I'm not really sure how useful that is suppose to be.

Now, I've been using BT for awhile now, on my D-Core AMD 4gigz Laptop. Never had a problem with it. However I wouldn't recommend using BT as a main OS. I'd start checking logs

I have had a few of those problems with bt4. The way I corrected them was to install bt3 it is based on slack not ubuntu.

Just install Debian or Ubuntu and add to the sorces.list the proper source for Backtrack instruments and gadgets, you can find it on their site, I believe it's this "deb repo.offensive-security.com/dist/bt4 binary/" but go there and read more about it.
