2.6.29 kernel, xorg-server 1.6 and a bunch of new tools

Here we are again with a new release. A lot has been going on in linux land recently and testing all the new stuff took quite some time. If you want to help getting chaox developed faster we’d really appreciate some testers. Contact us via irc or the forum for details. So what new stuff do we have? We have the 2.6.29.1 kernel, patched for injection, ecryptfs, giskismet a tool for visualizing wireless networks, we switched to the beta version of nmap which comes with conficker detection, the packet-o-matic packet processor, polipo proxy configured to work with tor (tor button in firefox should work out-of-the-box now), sqlninja injection and takeover tool for mssql, sqlsus a similar tool for mysql and the w3af web application pentesting tool.
On the infrastructure side, the kind folks over at aircrack-ng made a subforum for us, please use it instead of the comment section if you’re asking for support, wordpress comments have become hard to maintain. If you have any problems/suggestions/whatever we’d like to hear from you! Read more for the complete changelog.

IMPORTANT: This release is no longer supported, if you can’t reproduce your problem with the latest stable release we won’t help you.

  1. downloaded chaox-2009*.iso, extracted the files from it and placed them
    in a usb stick I have (with other linux live distros and a syslinux menu)
    When I booted on chaox it stopped after displaying this
    :: Loading Initramfs …
    [ ….
    [ …
    ERROR: cannot find booted usb device, exiting to shell

    tried to add sleep=5 in the boot option
    it didn’t change anything

    I then tried to boot the iso directly (via memdisk) I got the same error

    • You don’t have to extract any files, the iso image also works for usbdrives, simply dd or cpthe image onto your usbdrive.

    Hope someone can help..

    Thanks in advance

    • Are you sure that you have a working internet connection? It is needed for synchronizing the package database. We’ll have a new installer out later today that will warn the user if there was a problem synchronizing the database.

  3. Rustig Says:

    Yep, i think i have an working Internet connection. When i first tryed to Setup Network i did not got a dhcp adres, i got an error: Failed to run dhcpcd. See /dev/tty8 for details.

    So i stopt dhcpcd on my eth0 with: dhcpcd -x eth0
    After that i was getting an ipadres via Setup Network – eth0 – dhcpcd
    Polling from eth0, got IP adres, Network configured.

    Then because i wanted to test the Internet connection i exit the setup and checked via ifconfig and i had an ip adres, also i could ping to google.com

    I re-enter the ./chaox-setup and followed the steps i discribed above..

    Without success..

  4. Rustig Says:

    I dubble checked if i have an Internet connection, i’m using ISA for my Internet connection and this is what i monitored:

    Allowed Connection 19-05-2009 14:12:35
    Log type: Web Proxy (Forward)
    Status: 0 The operation completed successfully.
    Source: Internal ( 10.10.250.12:0)

    Object source: Cache Processing time: 1
    Cache info: 0x0 MIME type: application/x-tgz

    So i think its communicating with http://78.47.136.49 and getting file chaox-stable.db.tar.gz

    Maybe something else is going wrong, or am i doing wrong?

    Also at home where i do have a normal Internet connection via a normal router without a ISA server, i got the exact some error.

    Is the new installer allready online?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    Is it possible that the problem is the GET URL destination?

    http://78.47.136.49/stable/chaox-stable.db.tar.gz

    I think this is not a valid location, is this right?

  6. toukisan Says:

    Yep it’s not a valid location. http://repo.chaox.net/stable/chaox-stable.db.tar.gz is the right one.
    However I don’t think that’s the problem – it only appears like that in your proxy logs – although the hostname should also appear somewhere.
    Apparently one of the dev’s was able to reproduce the problem and we’re looking at it right now.

  7. Ok, it should be fixed now, before running the installer you have to update it with “pacman -Sy chaox-installer”. Everything should be fine after that. Sorry for taking so long, it was harder to fix than expected.

  8. Rustig Says:

    Ok, i try, thanks for the support. I will reply my results

  9. Rustig Says:

    sorry to report but it does not solved my problem.

    – booted from cd
    – choose shell
    – login as root
    – checked if i had allready an Internet connection, YES i have
    (ping google.com, got reply)
    – pacman -Sy chaox-installer
    update reported: See screenshot: [IMG]http://i41.tinypic.com/mwcs38.jpg[/IMG]

    – prepare Hard Drive (Auto-Prepare, no problem)
    – copy the Distribution (no problem)
    – package Installation (same error)

    Is there a way to manualy install Grub, i have an Internet connection up..

    Thanks in advance for your support!

    Mike

    • Damn was a bit in a hurry when I uploaded the package. That’s still the old installer, Try pacman -Sy chaox-installer again, you should get version 2009.02-8 now. Really sorry for all the trouble :(

  10. Rustig Says:

    ok, i forgive you, i can report that the package installer is working. Thanks.
    I now just have (i hope my last) error installing Grub. I got a error telling me it cant find …. menu.lst I know this file is important for grub.

    How can i install grub, just copied the live cd for the 10e time or something :)

    • toukisan Says:

      Oh well that’s strange. I guess the exact error message was “Error: Couldn’t find /mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst. Is GRUB installed?”?
      Well grub is installed during the Package Installation step – and I can’t think of any reason how that could fail without notice…
      Or was there any other message?

  11. Rustig Says:

    jep thats the exact message, when i check /mnt/boot/grub there is only 1 file, don’t know what file, i did a nano menu.lst and saved a empty file. Result in Grub did not report that error message and continued as aspected.

    next problem, i got dev errors from my disk, grub installing takes a very long time and reports error after error after error. I think i have to remove the MBR from this disk because i used to use this disk for BT and Ubuntu, maybe an old grub MBR is in the way..

    or is this a sign of a defective disk?

    • toukisan Says:

      Old MBR’s don’t matter, they’re just being overwritten.
      It would be nice to see the actual error messages – the installer creates a /tmp/grub.log with all grub related message.

      It’d help at lot if we’d have ssh access or if you’d the join the irc channel.

  12. Rustig Says:

    i mean i got errors installing the bootloader, also i tryed to manualy install grub via grub-installer and some instructions via wiki-arch.linux but getting also the dev write errors..

  13. Rustig Says:

    I can join the irc channel today after work, no problem (dont know your timezone?) Also if we can setup a ssh connection that will be great.

    Also on 22 may i have whole day off, i shall connect to the irc channel when i have some time, maybe i see you there.

    Thanks!

    • There should be someone around in the channel, but responses may take some time, we’re all in the european time zone, somebody should be available when you come home from work.

  14. Guillaume FORTAINE Says:

    It works like a charm now, thank you for the installer update :) !

    Keep up the good work ;) !

    Best Regards,

    Tried both 3-23 and 4-17 with a number of wireless cards/usbs. Very nice overall. Two observations; (1) usb boot process very confusing and finally had to go to a CD iso. i wonder if you can just go to UNetbootin to help that and (2) airoscript did not work on either o/s. In both cases, it would not scan. With standard non airoscript aircrack-ng terminal commands everything worked well.

    If you need further testing, let me know.

    John

  16. John Locke Says:

    For xfce, I see “start networkmanager” in the boot up line items but do not see network manager in the xfce menus.

    Can you tell me how to start network manager in xfce either via GUI or via terminal?

    Thanks.

  17. John Locke Says:

    Ahhh….silly me….icon bottom right. sorry…..have been using wicd and like your Network Manger. Up and running. thank you.

    I think that your airoscript is not aligned with your chaox o/s file system (airoscript.sh & airoscript.conf need to be set to reflect the file locations of aircrack-ng withn the chaox o/s). Have you tested airoscript and confirmed that it works for you?

    John

  18. John Locke Says:

    A nice consideration versus having airoscript is to have spoonwep2.deb in your o/s. Beautiful GUI cracking script. Written in Java, though, so you may still have the need to align the chaox aircrack-ng file locations with the spoonwep2 script.

    Google for “spoonwep2.deb download”.

    i like your o/s quite a bit as I use it.

    John

  19. John Locke Says:

    i have a large number of pcmcia and usb wireless cards and they all appear to be working well. Great job on that effort.

    My iwl4965 is darn close as well. Fake authentication and injection both work but still not a smooth cracking process (stop and go temporary freezing). This was on the 4-17 distro.

    Your chaox o/s has a good shot at being the best security o/s available.

    john

  20. Thanks for your comments. I’ll see what I can do about the iwl4965 driver, but that propably won’t be much, as I don’t know enough about the kernel to write a patch myself and we’re just using the patches from aircrack-ng.

    Could you explain what part of running chaox from usb drive was difficult? I wouldn’t like to use unetbootin as it would break the way our initrd works now.

    I’ll have airoscript fixed for the next version.

    I won’t be adding spoonwep2 to chaox, as I can’t find any sourcecode available for it and it doesn’t seem to play nice with recent svn versions of aircrack.

  21. John Locke Says:

    jensp,

    Many thanks for your response. You may not want to do anything yet with the iwl4965. I don’t think it is solvable yet…..but your software combination came the closest of any I have tried or seen via forum. i just wanted to give you feedback. The fake authorization is not yet perfect anywhere.

    Let me try again with the usb. Not sure why I had so much difficulty. Tried both in Linux and in windows. Formated the whole usb first with gparted or windows to FAT32. Then used a variety of software inlcuding terminal commands to copy the iso to the usb. I always got a “no boot” found error message. And, I have done bootable usbs before….so not sure where I am going wrong.

    Super news on the fix for airoscript. How did you fix that? Did you do an “sudo gedit” of the airoscript.conf file and change the file paths? Any chance you can email me a copy of the airoscript.conf file or the whole airoscript pkg? I will give it a good test and give you feedback in a few hours!

    For me, spponwep2 comes right up if you also have the right java installed on your o/s. The GUI is fine. The only challenge….you are right on the sourcecode….is linking the o/s file locations for aircrack via the spoonweb2 file script.

    Keep up the good work.

    All the best,

    John

    Is possible create an version with LXDE ?

    • We don’t have the resources to support another DE. Why would you prefer LXDE over XFCE anyway?

      • frankz Says:

        Beautiful thing Arch I know hdd USB persintente.
        Personally I prefer LXDE.
        and’ possible to change the German keyboard in Italian, also as language?
        Would I want to hold besides adjourns her/it and to add some packets with pacman or yaourt, e’possibile?
        thanks for an answer.

        • We’re working on making the boot menu more intelligent to allow the selection of more (maybe all?) keyboard layouts.
          Could you rephrase your last question? I don’t understand it.

          • frankz Says:

            what I want to get and a distro directed to the office rather than to the safety and portable from a pc to another.
            therefore I asked if I could consider her/it as an installation of the normal distro.what I want to get and a distro directed to the office rather than to the safety and portable from a pc to another.
            therefore I asked if I could consider her/it as an installation of the normal distro (pacman, …)and the hdd is 160GB.

            • Yeah sure, we have the installer for the normal Arch Linux distubution as well as our own installer for chaox included. Just run /arch/setup (for installing normal Arch Linux) or /arch/chaox-setup (for installing chaox) and follow the on screen instructions.
              Check the documentation in the Arch Linux wiki if you run into problems.

              • frankz Says:

                I don’t want to perform installation (setup) but as live (for the loading of the forms the PC are different).
                if possible possession of the indications as to plan to the boot the Italian keyboard or ctry to create e new version CD live USB with keyboard italian.
                thanks.

                • Sorry I forgot about your comment. You could do the following on a linux box:
                  sudo mkdir /tmp/chaox
                  mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
                  cp -a /mnt/cdrom/* /tmp/chaox/
                  Open /tmp/chaox/boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg with your favorite text editor and replace de with it. You can than reauthor the cd with the following command:
                  mkisofs -b boot/isolinux/isolinux.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -iso-level 4 -c boot/isolinux/boot.cat -o /tmp/new-chaox.iso -x files /tmp/chaox/

                  You can than burn the isoimage to cd. If you want to use it on a usb drive you have to install syslinux and run isohybrid /tmp/new-chaox.iso.

                  If that is too much work you can still wait for the next release which will have a more intelligent boot menu.

                  • frankz Says:

                    I thank you for the indications. In these days I try there.
                    Linux I have been knowing it for little time, if you make a wiki text file as to so simply create the working distro on USB with persistence (I have seen unbutu and other), but I have installed archlinux (very better of gentoo and his dependences. es – gtk + kde .. etc ).
                    I am one that tries us to understand and to learn (I think that this is the spirit of the “free or open” sw).
                    I would be you very thankful.

    Thnx Jensp Great Distro, fantastic!!!!!
    I can use mdk3, just wonder how 2 install back b43 and rt2870 drivers offline, b43 did connect to internet before install, after install n reboot stop working, how download them because i can connect 2 internet with livecd but no with installed on harddisk would like use update my harddisk system.

    Also wonder if miss something couldnt find airodump-ng, wireshark n kismet not working, my b43 works with backtrack but i like chaox

    ritz

    • You might have to install compat-wireless. If you don’t have a internet connection you can download it from here save it to a usb drive or something and install it with yaourt -U /path/to/compat-wireless-2.6.30_rc6-3-i686.pkg.tar.gz. I’m sorry it’s not there by default I messed something up :(

      Airodump-ng is at /usr/sbin/airodump-ng, but kismet and wireshark should definatly be working, too. Could you explain a little more what isn’t working with them?

  24. milton prez Says:

    Wow thnx for reply so fast, im not home, i work interstate, not everyday have internet on the road. i will get a snapshot of the dump errors of wireshark and kismet but probably in 3-4 days when i have more time, i dont have internet on all truckstops and i’m heading washington, not much truck stops there.

    Thanx-NG again for the link, i post back, but since u said them should be working and i take ur word, probably i have corrupted files i must check that, but i ran out of rest time, have to drive a lot of hours.

    Grateful Jenx-Ng
    Ritz

    • Milton Prez Says:

      Hi jensI’m with the report, i found that missing plugins folder, on the kismet error and wireshark cant find a wireless card its bind to eth1.
      I found the problem, well is my cdrom not working properly, after 3 years is all its lifespan on my laptop.

      I also read the problem of rusty about grub problems, i got some problems also, but i make a fix for me, i have installed ubuntu, so i just copy the grub folder of ubuntu to boot folder of chaox then install grub from installer and that made it.

      thanx for ur great support Jenx-NG

      Ritz

      • Could you be more specific on the grub problem? Did you update the installer (yaourt -Sy chaox-installer) before running it?

        • Milton Prez Says:

          Error: couln’t find /mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst is grub installed?
          iyes i update the installer. But i figure out, needs menu.lst, then i just copied the grub folder of ubuntu to the boot folder of chaox. run the grub installer again and it worked.

          many thnx, excelent work

          cheers
