Backtrack trick

1. Update Metasploit:
When i update metasploit using msfupdate, i get on error:
svn: Failed to add directory 'data/svn': an unversioned directory of the same name already exists..!!!

To fix it:
Delete svn folder in /pentest/exploit/framework3/data directory
#svn up
2. Auto startx:
Edit /root/.bashrc file:
Add lines:
if [ -z "$DISPLAY" ]; then
logout or restart :).
3. Auto start sshd ( in debian ubuntu)
If first time you use or config ssh:
( to change default root passwd)
#update-rc.d ssh defaults

SSH service auto start
