Kali Linux on rock family

Community Updates

Kali Linux is a Debian-derived Linux distribution designed for digital forensics and penetration testing. Kali Linux is preinstalled with numerous penetration-testing programs, including nmap (a port scanner), Wireshark (a packet analyzer), John the Ripper (a password cracker), and Aircrack-ng (a software suite for penetration-testing wireless LANs). Kali Linux recently supports ARM devices. manu7irl has made a script of building kali Linux for radxa rock and freq has improved it and made the image for rock pro.


Below is the instructions of building Kali Linux images for rock pro.

1.) get the radxa workspace

   git clone

2.) get the tools


3.) build the image

   ./radxa/rock_pro/scripts/ <VersionNumber>

The image is so modified that it auto-login as root and startx (due to the problems I encountered with the used ubuntu-boot-Image described in my last post).

The first thing you may want to do after the image is running, is to resize the Rootfs to use the whole nand: resize2fs /dev/block/mtd/by-name/linuxroot

After that you can optionally clone my workspace on the rock pro and modify the script radxa/rock_pro/scripts/ Uncomment the things you want to install (like conky, chromium browser, java, arduino), and run the script.
