The last release was broken due to the Linux 3.8.X kernel not playing well with unionfs – which is pretty lame. Also there was an awful Java fonts bug that ruined dpkg. I was able to fix both and rolled the kernel back to 3.7.10 which has been tested on USB and working properly with Unetbootin. The newer kernel makes the ISO smaller. So, I present to you, version 1.9!
I recompiled the kernel with better Netfilter support and even more wifi drivers – I recompiled the NVIDIA 310 driver and compat-drivers. I added FreeRADIUS WPE, hostapd, hashcat, more scripts, and even on screen display scripts. (the WiFi one was m33b0′s idea). Also, I added more Hardware hacking utilities, Android hacking utilities, and changed the Grub screen resolution and configuration for faster booting.

I am not really sure where the database for dpkg went during development, but hey – that’s what Linux is all about right?: fixing bugs and solving puzzles. So I spent most of my evening last night and came up with a super script that fixes the entire issue for those who want to use aptitide (apt-get, apt-cache, etc)
To solve the issue, run these commands from the command prompt:
chmod +x aptitudefix.sh
This will rebuild most of the database and allow for apt-cache searches again. If the entry is not in the DB files it will be added and you may see a lot of extra lines during an apt-get install
java is about 100MB or so and was trimmed from the BETA ISO, but it is required for playing with the cute Metasploit “Armitage” gui interface and the spectrum analyzer software for the Ubiquiti Airview.
Once we have done the aptitude fix above, we can now do
