Using a similar method outlined in http://www.powerdeveloper.org/forums/vi ... php?t=2176 we were able to get BackTrack 5 for arm running on the Efika MX Smarttop units.

BackTrack is an Ubuntu GNU/Linux based distribution aimed at digital forensics and penetration testing use.

You can get the arm version of BackTrack 5 here

http://www.backtrack-linux.org/downloads/

Make sure you select Backtrack 5

It sounds like a very interesting project, but I always get The connection has timed out message when I try to reach the webserver :-(

Which link are you trying that is timing out?

It was http://www.backtrack-linux.org/downloads/ and it's OK now, but was unavailable until now today...

I'm attempting to install on SD Media using a Linux OS. Any hints or instructions for the Smartbook? Will the image only function in a chroot?

You actually won't even have to go the chroot way.

1. On the SD card create a boot partition and a filesystem partition
2. extract the backtrack image onto the filesystem partition
3. copy the kernel modules in the right place
4. With SD card in smartbook reboot from SD

you will booted into the Backtrack environment - no chroot env ;-)

I'll stick to chroot on the smartbook for now (no more free SD cards at home...) Once my smartbook is free, it's the best tool ever to generate large amount of logs for my syslog-ng experiments :-)

I created two partitions on SD media:
128 MiB [sdboot]
~15 GiB [sdroot]

Mounted the bt5.img with the loopback option.

rsync -av /mnt/bt5-loop/boot/ /mnt/sdboot/
rsync -av /mnt/bt5-loop/ /mnt/sdroot/

No joy.

What am I missing? May I please ask for more details?

Thanks!

I have started a howto for BT5 on Efika :
https://doukki.net/doku.php?id=wiki:notes:efika-bt5

What is missing from this howto (for now) is the FIXME part :
I have to prepare the uInitrd and uImage from the efika itself (in chroot).

A ready to use image can then be generate, after some cleannings, for a 4Go SD card...

Stay tuned

Definitely awesome! I actually had this back when it was released, but unfortunately, a recent apt-get update completely blew everything up that I had, so I gave up on it. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this!

The wiki looks great! I'm having difficulty locating the kernel mentioned: linux-image-2.6.31.14.27dreagle-efikamx_2012.03_armel.deb

Where do we find it?

Thanks!

Hi.

'linux-image-2.6.31.14.27dreagle-efikamx_2012.03_armel.deb' can be obtained by compiling the kernel sources. You can find these here:

https://github.com/genesi/linux-legacy

To cross compile them, make sure you have these:

Code:
apt-get install debhelper kernel-package fakeroot binutils-multiarch


And compile with:


Code:
cp arch/arm/configs/mx51_efikamx_defconfig .config

make-kpkg --revision 2012.03 --arch armel --cross-compile arm-linux-gnueabi- --subarch efikamx --us --uc --rootcmd=fakeroot --jobs=2 --initrd binary-arch

Can I do the kernel compile in the BT5 chroot?- Or from my instance of armhf?

Also, I'm getting the following when I chroot in to the BT5 root:
root@mp3:/media/rootfs/boot# chroot /media/rootfs/
bash: /dev/null: Permission denied

Do I need to mount /proc or /dev?

Thanks!

Great job - I see in your todo's you need prep-kernel

Assuming you have all the build tools installed and the debhelper tools (as mentioned in the kernel compile how to post above) you can do the following:

1.
Code:
 git clone git://github.com/genesi/prep-kernel.git

2.
Code:
cd prep-kernel

3.
Code:
debuild


It will fail at the signature but it should build a prep-kernel deb package in the parent directory.

thanks for the feedback,
If anyone is interested, I can upload the ready to use image.

Any interest/possibility in hosting it with the other available linux images ?
