0004376Kali Linux[All Projects] General Bugpublic2017-12-01 08:30
Assigned Torhertzog 
Product Version2017.2 
Target VersionFixed in Version2018.1 
Summary0004376: netboot fails when retrieving libc6-udev
DescriptionWhen 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 ReproduceStart install from netboot image.

I am curious...
Where did you find a 'netboot' of Kali?


Spyro (reporter)

This problem seems to be prevalent in the kali daily rolling located at : https://archive.kali.org/kali-daily-images/

I think it's the Kali light one I'm not sure though

@tyowell1 Can you point us to the netboot image that you used? Where and when did you download it? Do you have a version for it?

It's very unlikely that the debug console shows a message about libc6-udeb 2.23-1 since the current version is 2.25-1...

@rhertzog I am using the most recent Kali live build pulled down from git.

I will upload screenshot of failure, it is the same error Spyro uploaded a screenshot of.

Once that error appears it does not allow you to get to any options on the menu, including to get the debug logs.

Also having this issue - Followed instructions on https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux/kali-rolling-iso-of-doom/.

While using the resulting ISO to install, I get the error. I've attached a screenshot of the console.

We built new installer images yesterday (version 20171009+b1). It should be fixed now.
