I am not using OphCrack for any illegal activity.
I am using it to recover a forgotten password on a friend's computer only.
I have already loaded OphCrack onto an USB using Pendrivelinux Universal USB installer. I make the computer boot from the USB and after it loads I do get a rudimentary interface that asks me to run OphCrack:
Low Ram GUI
with each attempt to use the GUI types it only will use the text version and it is VERY hard to use as it is full screen and since I can't seem to fix the resolution a lot of the text is hidden. This is especially true at the end of it's searching (approx 55 mins!!) and the results are at the bottom of the screen and I can't see the text other than some preamble. The actual results are hidden below the bottom of the monitor.
Some questions. Why is the GUI not booting up. This problem is apparently quite common as I have read this very question on other forums, but no one is addressing the issue.
Is Linux supposed to load either full on or in some kind of shell to run OphCrack? If so am I missing something here? Should I have, say Ubuntu loaded and run from the USB as well? I assumed that by loading OphCrack from Pendrivelinux's list it would have this capability.
Can ANYONE lend me a hand here?
Thanks in advance!
