For current openSUSE 11.4 and 12.1 users it is necessary to have the following repositories configured:
  
* [http://fingerprint.nist.gov/ NIST Image Group] - Many reports, including the [[NIST]] report on [[AFIS]] [[fingerprint]] testing.

*security
 +
*devel:languages:perl
 +

 +
 
 +
This is most easily done from the command line via (assumes openSUSE 12.1):

 +
sudo zypper ar -f <nowiki>http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/security/openSUSE_12.1</nowiki> security

Revision as of 19:28, 24 February 2012

There are a number of linux distributions.

In general they have primary repositories which are setup for every installation of the operating system and they have special purpose repositories which require specific setup.

Repository Setup

openSUSE

For current openSUSE 11.4 and 12.1 users it is necessary to have the following repositories configured:

  • security
  • devel:languages:perl
  • devel:languages:python

This is most easily done from the command line via (assumes openSUSE 12.1):

sudo zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/security/openSUSE_12.1 security
sudo zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/perl/openSUSE_12.1 perl
sudo zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/languages:/python/openSUSE_12.1 python

zypper lr               # used to verify you have the repos installed

fedora

debian

ubuntu

Computer Forensic Tools

Below is a list of computer forensic tools. For each tool the repository it can be found in and the version in the repository is shown.

As an example, aimage is in the openSUSE security repository and it is version 3.2.5
