|0006196||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2020-03-17 11:44||2020-03-17 14:26|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0006196: Kali 2020.1 ARM for Pinebook Pro image is corrupted and still on root:toor credentials|
|Description||1. Multiple folders in the Kali ARM-Image 2020.1 for Pinebook Pro are corrupted and can therefore not be accessed/overwritten by apt. These folders include:|
This leads to problems running apt-get upgrade and causes dependency issues when not deleted before running upgrade.
2. In 202.1 there should be a non-root user with kali:kali credentials, however, the ARM 2020.1 image for Pinebook pro still ships with root:toor and no kali:kali.
|Steps To Reproduce||Download Kali ARM 2020.1 via direct download or torrent (tested both) and burn the image to a sd-card via Linux Mints Disk Image Writer. |
Plug the SD-card into the corresponding slot in a Pinebook Pro and boot.
Log in with root:toor and run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade in a terminal after getting an internet connection.
Apt should now throw errors indicating corrupt file paths as described in the Description.
|Additional Information||Deleting the described folders before running apt-get upgrade fixes most of the resulting the issues, if not dependency issues due to wrong versions or non-existence of packets ensue.|
Non-native speaker btw, so please excuse grammar, spelling and wording.
Thanks for the report! I will look into the filesystem corruption issue.
The root:toor is noted in the release blog, arm images do not currently use kali:kali but root:toor and in 2020.2's release, they will be root:toor for the first boot, and then you as an end user will set your own username and password as well as changing the root password.
