Bauer-Puntu 8.10 Released!

Okay, sorry this one was a little late getting out. This version was a little harder to create than the last version. For one, I don't know if you have noticed this, but it is nearly impossible to change the usplash theme in Ubuntu 8.10. Not sure what is up with that, but is a royal pain in my arse! I hate the default splash in Ubuntu!

For this version, I had to remove usplash and switch on over to the easier to use and configure splashy. Of course that caused some issues of its own which I finally ironed out, but still...

For instance, if you decide you want to install Bauer-Puntu, that is fine. It will work, you just have to remember to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst after the install to get the splashy splash screen to work. What you need to do is edit your kernel line to add vga=791. For example, find the line that says something like:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic root=UUID=3dca6051-5877-438c-94c5-f5ff7803d851 ro quiet splash

and add vga=791 at the end of it so it reads:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-7-generic root=UUID=3dca6051-5877-438c-94c5-f5ff7803d851 ro quiet splash vga=791

After you are done, from the terminal run:

sudo update-grub

After the reboot, splashy will be working again. No big woop ;-)

Anyway, enough about that, here is the download link:

Download Bauer-Puntu

This version is just under 650MB, so you can stick it on a CD! Now it really is a Live CD!


I removed all of the games, as well as Evolution and OpenOffice. You will just have to add those back later.

In their place though I added some cool pentesting tools for some hacking goodness. Install Bauer-Puntu to a USB stick, or just carry it around on CD (It is a Live CD after all) and you have some mobile hackability!

The tools I installed are:

  • kismet
  • aircrack-ng
  • ettercap-ng
  • nmap
  • Wireshark
  • Metasploit Framework 3.1
