BackTrack Base
 Therehave been manychangesintroducedinto BackTrack

the
structureofBackTrack.
BackTrack Kernel
We
nolonger
uselzma
enabled
squashfsas
our
live
filesystem
,
which
ononehand
results
in
largerISO size,but on the otherhand,freesus from havingto maintainour own
kernel
patches.This is especiallypainfulthesedays,as squashfs
isslowlymovingintothemainstreamkernel(atthetimeofthiswriting).
