Pentoo 2014.0 RC3.5 Release

Wednesday 24 September 2014 by Zero_Chaos

The Pentoo Team is pleasantly surprised to announce the thirdish Release Candidate of Pentoo 2014.0

After ignoring our public facing website for over a year we have fixed so many bugs that we finally have time to actually update the website. We have a revamped mostly functional installer that is 1000x faster than the previous version as well as a host of improvements and other features. Check the blog for more detailed information (look right), if we ever have time to write to it.

Other distros may update their webpage more often, but our commit logs speak for themselves. Use a distro from hackers, not web developers.

Pentoo 2012.0 Defcon Release

Monday 30 July 2012 by Zero_Chaos

The Pentoo Team is pleased to announce public beta of Pentoo 2012

Yesterday at Defcon I was able to finally complete building of our brand new beta. I now present to you, the best pen-testing distro I was able to whip out in 3 days of heavy drinking and partying while walking around with my laptop all of defcon constantly looking for a source of power to keep compile going. This iso has had nearly no QA at all, but I can promise it will rock your socks. Please check the blog (look right) for further details. (still 64 bit only for now, sorry)

Pentoo is still here and kicking

Wednesday 25 July 2012 by Zero_Chaos

Welcome to 2012

Here at Pentoo we have been striving through our other obligations to get you a pentesting distribution that looks forward to the future instead of tracking back into what is safe and simple. Sadly, that means a lot of work for us, and honestly we don't have the time to rock you AND keep the main page of this website up to date. For the present time, please let your eyes fall to the right where you can clearly see the blog posts. I will be keeping the blog up to date when new and exciting things happen, for now, read and stay tuned, you won't be disappointed.

Pentoo 2009.0 final is there

Friday 4 December 2009 by Grimmlin, Zero Chaos

And we could eventually make it before 2010...

So, nights after nights, we polished this version, and it looks really nice so far. We did so many things that it’s hard to do a Changelog, but you can get the list here

The most notable changes:

  • New kernel 2.6.31.6 with aufs and squashfs-lzma
  • New wifi stack 2.6.32_rc7 with injection and fragmentation patches
  • Qemu with virt-manager so you can play some VMs in there.
  • Lots of tools update (msf, exploit-db, kismet, sqlmap, firefox & plugins)
  • Some tools additions (airpwn, wapiti, pppd) and some graphics fixes (nvidia, intel)

You can find it in the download section

We also want to thanks aricon, jensp and Da_FBi for all their contributions.

Pentoo 2009 beta aka "The longest build"

Monday 17 August 2009 by Grimmlin, Zero Chaos

I know we’ve been sooooooo long to throw this out, but we finaly managed to get something working and here it is, twice, as we’re releasing both a 32 and 64 bit version.

I really would like to thank Zero Chaos for kicking my butt and keeping us going for the past years, otherwise I would have dropped a long time ago if i’ve been alone. That guy did an impressive work.

Kudos also goes out to :

  • Melissa Holmes for the awesome graphics.
  • Portswigger for letting us include burpsuite in the build
  • Chris and Joe from LSO for helping us improve pentoo.
  • All the beta testers. Thank you guys, your job means a lot to us!
  • Gentoo and all their developers, for making such a great distro

Now, you can head over to the download section, and start feeling a genuine pentesting pleasure.
