HOW TO RUN BACKTRACK 5 ON THE N900

Instructions :

(Be sure you have rootsh & easy-chroot)

Put the bt5.img anywhere (eg: /home/user/Mydocs/bt5 )
you can download the image here
open Terminal
Code:
 sudo gainroot
 mkdir /mnt/bt5 
 qchroot /home/user/MyDocs/bt5/bt5.img /mnt/bt5/ 
 export USER=root
 vncpasswd (Needs to be done once for setting up a password)
 vncserver -geometry 800x470
 startvnc
Now go back to open VNC and leave terminal open in background
In VNC use this settings :
The adress is 127.0.0.1:590x
x Is the number you see when you typed "startvnc" inside BT5. You will see something like this :
"Log file is /home/user/.vnc/Nokia-N900:x.log"
Mine was "Log file is /home/user/.vnc/Nokia-N900:1.log", so i have 127.0.0.1:5901
Enter password you choosed before, log in have fun.
When done and VNC is closed, do this to shutdown BT5:
Go back to opend terminal
Code:
 stopvnc
 exit
 qumount /mnt/bt5
 exit
Credits Goes to Superdump For his amazing job

People who need to know something learn it. Only those really screwed by circumstances can need something and not find a way to get to it. If you can post talk.maemo.org and download this image, you realistically must have the resources to figure out how to use it.

Some people need a little help. It's ok to ask or to admit that you don't know something.

Asking is fine, though less so when the information is easily searchable (but in this case it's not something easy to search unless you already know what to look for, so I didn't count that against him either). Admitting you don't know is also fine.

My problem was with the "need" notion.

Would love to run this on my n900 but I lack the knowledge to do it on my own sow I really need a guide. Which is not available, though not strange at all at the date of release.
Hope someone will manage to run this on his n900 and is willing to tell me
