|0005881||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2019-12-06 17:30||2020-12-01 10:41|
|Target Version||2020.1||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0005881: PFSense router advertisements for DHCPv6 cause issues during installation|
When a PFSense setup has router advertisements enabled for DHCPv6 during installation network setup will fail. Disabling this will fix it and installation will work properly.
|Steps To Reproduce||Set up PFSense and ensure router advertisements are enabled for DHCPv6|
Download 2019.4 Kali and go through install
During network set up it will fail
Disable router advertisements for DHCPv6 but leave the DHCPv6 server running
Go through install again, this time the network setup will work properly
|Additional Information||Thanks Iggy and Covert Error for the reports and fix|
I don't have a FreeBSD router at home, so it won't be easy for me to reproduce this and fix it.
And I find it weird that this issue would be Kali specific. We are forking the "netcfg" component of the installer (http://pkg.kali.org/pkg/netcfg) but it's only to set the default hostname to "kali" because it was not preseedable.
Can we also have the full logs of the failed installation run? See https://www.kali.org/docs/troubleshooting/troubleshooting-a-kali-linux-install/ for instruction to get the logs.
Is this reproducible with the mini.iso as well as with the official 2019.4 ISO?
Can we have some details for the network configuration used in VMWare ?
Is this also reproducible with virtualbox in a network with a PFSense router ?
We should review changes made by Ubuntu because there might some bug fixes there that never got merged back to Debian:
See the Ubuntu box on https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/netcfg:
||Another notable change that we are doing in Kali compared to Debian is that we put "net.ifnames=0" on the kernel command line which means that we have "eth0" when Debian nowadays has other names. I'm not sure if it can explain the difference, but it might be worth trying to remove that parameter on the kernel command line in the live ISO (TAB in syslinux, CTRL+e in grub IIRC).|
