|0004239||Kali Linux||Kali Package Bug||public||2017-09-11 10:39||2023-10-10 12:26|
|Fixed in Version||2017.2|
|Summary||0004239: kali-live: LXDE - many problems with X, language environment, boot|
I am regulary building kali-linux live for LXDE. The build is done in an actual
Note, that I build or German environment. It should not be dangerous, to add a list of additional packages.
Also, I use apt-cacher-ng, which also should not be a problem.
So, latest build is no more usable again, and I believe, there is a big bug in some of packages.
The command, I am building kali live is the followinng:
./build.sh --arch i386 --distribution kali-rolling --variant lxde --verbose -- --apt-http-proxy http://localhost:3142/ --bootappend-live "boot=live noconfig=sudo username=root hostname=kali ignore_uuid locales=de_DE.UTF-8 keyboard-layouts=de keyboard-variants=nodeadkeys"
This always worked very well.
The strange thing is: using the same command for buildding with XFCE., X starts fine (axcept of the keyboard misconfiguration). However, I prefer LXDE mostly, as it is much faster and more comfortable on my EEEPC.
Please note, that I wanted to try a prebuild lkali-ive from your website, but I could only find your build on 64-bit, not on 32-bit.
Hope it helps, please ask for miore information.
Thank you very much.
You have already filed 0004118. Is this something different really?
Yes we are only building amd64 images for alternate desktops.
Please stop reporting multiple issues in a single ticket. Go read https://kali.training/chapter-6/filing-a-good-bug-report/ please.
yes, it looks liker 0004118, and maybe it is the same cause. But the described problems in this bug are new (i.e. no keyboard input). IMO there may be different bugs (however, I can not prove it). When I could have been able, zto find the cause for the bug, I qwould not have opened a new one. However, I guess, the new bug withe the "wronbg language keyboard environment" and the "missing ability of keyboard input at all", mihght be another cause than the one described at bug0004118.
P.S. I sent the packages list as you requested on 0008114.
Hi, I just built a new livefile (as usual) and most things are working now.
So, as this bugreport is also related to bug 0004118, I recommended that one as closed.
However, there is still the problem with the wrong keyboard layout in X (should be German but is still US). In console (tty1-6) the German keyboard environment/layout is working, but still not oin X.
So please let this bugreport open.
Just a hint: This problem appeared already some months ago (bug ßßß3849), filed by me and fixed by rhertzog. Maybe the same cause appeared again?
Thanks for your help.
So, some more information. IMHO it looks like some relation to live-build.
I checked all related configurations in the livefile and they look ok.
Then I did the following command (as told in the xorg documentation), without changing anything:
udevadm trigger --subsystem-match=input --action=change
started lightdm again and - voila, keyboard input is in German.
So I think, that something is not configured correctly during the build in live-build.
Sorry that I am not enough experienced with live-build, and I have no clue, where to oo at. Are these this "hooks", which are configuring this? Do not now, and the dokumentation of ive-buid does it not make clear enough for me.
Maybe this report helps, and maybe this thing can easily be fixed.
Please drop me a note, if you think, you fixed this issue, I will then build a new one for testing.
Thank you, this is useful information. Please test the attached live-config_5.20170830_all.deb by putting it in kali-config/common/config/packages.chroot/
(it must be in config/packages.chroot at the time of the build)
live-config_5.20170830_all.deb (33,202 bytes)
Maybe you can answer me some questions with closing this bugreport?
Thank you for any answers, and again thank you for fixing this bug.
As I said above, this bugreport can be safely closed.
I was too fast and forgot:
Best regards and happy hacking
