#! Kali

A little project I'm working on...

I use Kali at work for pen-testing so I thought I'd create a hybrid with my favourite lightweight distro #!.
The result is basically CrunchBang built on Kali as a base instead of Debian along with a custom Openbox menu for all of the Kali tools.

The installed version is working fine, I'm just wrestling with the Kali build scripts at the minute to try and produce a live version.

Re: #! Kali

Excellent I'd like to hear your findings on the build scripts as I'm wrestling with the debian build scripts too. I've looked at kali and livarp. I'm leaning towards livarp at the moment as a simpler process.

Re: #! Kali

Building a vanilla Kali with the Debian live build scripts is easy enough, instructions are on the web site...
http://docs.kali.org/live-build/live-bu … m-kali-iso

I've edited the default Kali scripts to add the #! repos and the cb-metapackage to the build and to remove the default Gnome DE, there's just a package conflict that I'm working on and the Live image should be ready to roll.

Does anyone know if the #! build scripts are available to look at, or does Corenominal keep them under his hat?

Re: #! Kali

cheesemill any news on this project of yours?

I'm really interested in what you are trying to do as I would like to do the same once I've figured out how to get a non-pae kernel.

Re: #! Kali

Hey nice  smile

There is also a little project of mine going on to port the complete Kali Tools menu including icons to openbox, which might assist you on the build as well.
https://github.com/pantu/kali-openbox-menu

All menu/submenu entries are finished already, but I still have to do the applications itself.
Currently I decided to use urxvt as a default launcher. If you know a reason I should change it to something else, please let me know.

Re: #! Kali

Personally, I just installed #!, added the official Kali repos (2, kali main and kali security), the kali-archive keyring, and then jacked Pantu's code to generate the Kali Tools menu (https://github.com/redneckwes387/kali-o … -Icon-less).

PS- Thanks for that pantu/sluxx...so much code I didn't need to write.

Re: #! Kali

I use external raid for data, so no worries. As far as the thread, why? Because they're using diffrent repos? Because he's teying and failing to utilize sources.list correctly? Eh, seems a newbie, even worse than the script kiddie I am alot of the time, decided to treat #! like ubuntu....lol.
