|Summary||0005981: Kali Live Build Won't Build A Proper ISO|
|Description||I am attempting to build a custom, Kali i3-gaps ISO with my dotfiles and settings. The files that are being used for the build can be viewed at:|
The main differences vs the Kali Gitlab account is that I am trying to set Hack Nerd Font as the default font while installing i3-gaps and polybar as well as some other programs and alike. Towards the end of the build, xorriso starts building the ISO, however, libisofs starts throwing various "Cannot add" errors. I've tried using Kali's own repo and building any ISO variant; headless, i3wm, minimal etc as well as using a VM to build both Kali Gitlab's ISOs and my custom ISO but they suffer from the same issue.
I initiate the build using `./build.sh --variant i3wm --verbose`. Do note that my repo was based on the Kali Docs; following the guide there.
I have attached my build log for the ISO I started building several hours ago at this report.
kali-linux-rolling-i3wm-amd64.log (1,165,771 bytes)
||Those messages are not errors, they are only a warning. Your image got built. Closing the ticket.|
Apologies, I forgot to attach 2 images that were vital to this report; depicting the issue. The ISO does indeed get build but it's unusable. I cannot initiate "Install" or Graphical" install.
Graphical Install: http://prnt.sc/qkglyh
This is the main issue. Once again, I apologize for forgetting to attach these images.
You need to downgrade your version of cpio to the version currently available in kali-rolling, aka 2.12+dfsg-9+b1.
The version that you have was shortly available in Kali but we downgraded it back to a former version because of this bug: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=946267
