|0003029||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Kali Package Bug||public||2016-01-30 18:02||2016-02-09 07:54|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2016.1|
|Summary||0003029: Kali does not run properly on Skylake CPUs|
|Description||Reproducible in Live environments, VM installs, graphical installs, nongraphical installs, networked live, safe mode live, VM copied folders.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Install it or try to run it on a Skylake CPU. I've gotten remarkably close to a working system but gradually, more and more mysteriously fails. Anything from 'apt-get upgrade' to just logging in at all, it's all hacked together with Skylake and kernel panics are normal.|
Multiple users finding out the common denominator is Skylake. Not sure if the instructions must be that different or of it's a virtualization issue or what.
Why are you emulating a Skylake CPU? Try to emulate a different CPU if this one does not work for you.
Can you retry with Kali Rolling 2016.1? With its newest kernel and libc6, it might work better on that CPU.
I did not say I am emulating a CPU. I'm saying the newest Kali will not work on my Skylake CPU using either a VM or boot environment.
I will try the newest release that being said and get back to you.

||Did you test Kali 2016.1 ?|
Yes! It worked perfectly, just needed that Kernel update.
Thanks a lot! Kali devs are awesome.
||Thanks, closing the bug then.|
