How to install VNCcrack

I’ve tried to install VNCcrack a bunch of times.  Each time I’ve run into a nightmare of dependency issues.  No matter what dependency I cleared up, a new one popped up if not 5 more.  Finally, I tried it on Backtrack and discovered BT5 had most of the dependencies pre-installed (go figure).  So here is you will need to get VNCcrack working on your system:

Backtrack 5 r3
download VNCcrack (if you haven’t already)

# apt-get install libgmp3-dev
# apt-get install botan1.8
# apt-get install botan1.8-dev
# apt-get install botan1.8-dbg

This command will allow you to downgrade the libbz2 package to the older version, which is required.
# aptitude install libbz2-dev

Now go to the VNCcrack folder and install
# ./configure
# make
# make install

Happy cracking…
