What is Linux Blackweb ?
BlackWeb is a Linux distribution aimed at advanced penetration testing and security auditing. BlackWeb contains several hundred tools which are geared towards various information security tasks, such as penetration testing, security research, computer forensics and reverse engineering. Starting from an appropriately configured LXDE desktop manager it offers stability and speed. BlackWeb has been designed with the aim of achieving the maximum performance and minimum consumption of resources.
After exploring the LXDE interface for a while, I decided to try installing BlackWeb. I could not find a launcher for the system installer in the live session and rebooted to start the installer from the boot menu. I soon found the graphical installer option did not work, choosing it would simply return me to the boot menu. The plain install option launches Debian's text installer. The Debian installer is not particularly attractive and there are a lot of steps to go through.
