Summary0005620: firmware-b43legacy-installer is crashing when building kali-live

When building kali-live the build is crashing, when unpacking and installing the package "firmware-b43legacy-installer".
I can not see, what is really happening, only that the build is stopping due to a problem with this package.

A normal installation on an installed kali-linux is working fine, only at building a live-system it is crashing.

This issue appeared about 3 months ago and on both architectures: i386 and amd64.

Any hints are welcome, as I am completely stuck at the moment.

Best regards

Can you at least provide some logs of what you are seeing?

The daily builds are working fine and they are installing this package. This package is downloading files from the network so my suspicion is that you have some network problems in your build environment.

Hi Raphael,

please apologize for calling you with the wrong name in my last post. Got somehow the wrong name in my mind.

On the other hand, I do not see my last post here. So in short again:

I will test a new build at weekend, and as I am using apt-cacher-ng I will delete the named package from the repository (both , i386 and amd64)

If everything is working fine, you will be informed. If not, I will inform, too (of course), but will attach the build.log to it.

You will be stayed informed. :)

Best regards

Hi Raphael,

I did as I told today - and got into the same issue again. The build crashes when accessing the named package.
I saved the log and attached it. Additionally I will go on further examining.

Hope, it helps.

Best regards

Hi Raphael,

looks like this entry in the log shows the problem

--- snip ---
A chroot environment has been detected.
Remember this firmware needs kernel >= 2.6.25.

Resolving localhost (localhost)... ::1,,

I believe, the download entry should be "https://" instead of "http://". Can you check this and try a new package with https? I would like to test this.

I tried the link manually and it automatically switches (in the browser) to https. Just an idea....

Or is there the problem, because the package wants to download out of the chroot which of course has no network itself?

You have all the information that you need in your log:
> Proxy request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden file type or location
> 2019-08-16 17:26:51 ERROR 403: Forbidden file type or location.

You have configured an HTTP proxy and that proxy is denying you the right to download that file. Disable that proxy or reconfigure it, but it's not an issue in Kali.
