|0003417||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2016-07-15 19:20||2020-12-01 10:48|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003417: netboot fails when retrieving libc6-udev|
|Description||When trying to boot off the most recent netboot install, the install fails giving a "Loading libc6-udeb failed for unknown reasons. Aborting" message. The debug console shows retrieving libc6-udev 2.23-1 and then segfaults.|
After this point, all available menu steps fail on themselves, and the debug menu reports a segmentation fault. Using a seperate ptty to get a dump fails as it won't open a new terminal (just repeats "Please Press Enter to activate this console" and reports a segfault in debug.
|Steps To Reproduce||Start install from netboot image.|
||It does take additional steps between starting netboot and failure. Original error was reported with a preseed.cfg that would automatically set settings. Failure is at Partition Disks, and has been tried across several different systems with similar results.|
I just scheduled a rebuild of the debian-installer images to fix this. It's due to to the new libc6 switch (2.22 -> 2.23).
Please try again with the new ISO once http://http.kali.org/dists/kali-dev/main/installer-amd64/ contains version 20160516+kali1+b1.
This appears to be fixed, after downloading the new netboot install, the process is successfully passing that step.
