View Full Version : [ubuntu] Porting software from a 7.04 LiveCD into 9.10

Hey Guys,

So I bought this book "Hacking: The Art of Exploitation", by Jon Erickson(In case your curious :P). It came with a LiveCD of Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty I think) setup just for hacking. I know that its just got a whole bunch of shell programs aimed at hacking,programming and examing code. My assumption is that the book is aimed at people using windows exclusively with no Linux experience, and since I already have Ubuntu, why run off a LiveCD with nothing installed when I could in my already installed version of 9.10?

SO my question is, is there anyway I can port all the extra goodies included on this disc into my current file-system so that I can still follow along exactly with the book but be in my native installation rather than on a LiveCD?

Ive thought about copying the /bin without overwriting any 9.10 software, but am somewhat apprehensive of doing so I havent done it yet.

Thanks Guys, any help given is appreciated.

I would look for the latest versions of the goodies. The dependencies are not the same, so by trying to install them, it would worth more of a headache than it is worth.

CodeTBone, I bought the same book just a few days ago (newbie) and I can't copy any of the files to a USB drive. I don't have the root password - do you know it?

What a bit strange is if I type:
$ nautilus .
the file manager comes up but if I type:
$ sudo nautilus .
nothing happens except it asks my for the password.

It will let me copy files from the USB drive to Ubuntu 7.04 but I can't copy files from Ubuntu 7.04 to the USB drive. Can you or anyone else please give me some help on this problem - thanks

It might be better to wait for responses in your thread. And by the way, 7.04 is an old version of Ubuntu.

It might be better to wait for responses in your thread....Especially since this 2+year old thread is closed.
