Kali Linux 3.4.75 Fortress for ODROID-XU (20140308)

Unread post by robroy » Sun Oct 06, 2013 10:03 pm

I created a Kali Linux image with Kernel 3.4.75, forked from the official Kali release, with a suite of applications for security penetration testing.

Download the image here:
http://oph.mdrjr.net/robroyhall/images/ ... 308.img.xz

European mirror by @traxo:
http://odroid.txmonitor.de/

Want to upgrade your existing Kali image?
Kernel updates: http://builder.mdrjr.net/tools/kernel-update.sh

Username: root
Password: toor

Applications: Kali Penetration Testing Suite, Iceweasel, Xine and Oracle JDK 8.

Customizations left for you upon burning the image to your card:
  • 1. Resize the "rootfs" partition to fit your SD card. This is best done on another Linux system using the GParted utility.
    2. Set your time zone using System Settings -> Time & Date.
    3. Set your language using System Settings -> Language Settings.
    4. Set your username and password using System Settings -> User Accounts.
Improvements and upgrades:
  • 1. To overclock to 1.92GHz, type "sudo gedit /etc/rc.local" in Terminal and remove the "#" from the beginning of the line that starts with "echo 1920000".
    2. Iceweasel has the IcedTea7 plugin installed for Java browser applets.
    3. All upgrades and updates have been run using aptitude, apt-get and synaptic.
    4. All orphaned and obsolete packages have been purged, including the original kernel.
Features in this release:
  • Official HK kernel 3.4.75 (commit 88727487c1ed7a73f9c8233484a00de1b1cf7adc)
    Oracle JDK8 September 2013
Notes:
  • Due to lack of official support for binwalk on the ARM platform, the "kali-linux-full" and "kali-linux" metapackages are not marked as installed. However, all of the Kali software that comprises the meta-packages, including binwalk, are present as stand-alone applications instead.

    When the image is booted without the wired LAN plugged in, the clock time may become out-of-sync, unless you are using a clock battery. In Kali, this time difference causes the root file system to be mounted as read-only. If this happens, type "fsck /" when logged in as root, then reboot with the LAN properly attached. This will unlock the file system and re-synchronize the clock with Internet time via NTP.

Thanks for your time on this. It's a blessing to have guys willing to put their effort into this. As well the other gentleman I noticed posted some info/build for Kali.

Thank you! Kali is an epic collection of powerful tools, and is one of my favorite operating systems for the Odroid.

Keep an eye on the forums for more -XU images once the 3.4.5 kernel and GPU matures.

In the meantime, you can always facilitate and support upcoming bleeding-edge Odroid software projects via the link in my signature :)

Morning Dr Hall. So I've tried this image 4 times now. :/. I first installed it on a 16gb cl10 card and now trying on 16gb UHS1 card. All of my installs on the emmc, cl10, uhs1 cards boot up fine but this image. Thus far I've only installed Android, xUbuntu and Ubuntu server, but I isolated out any of the cards being the issue. The cl10 definitely chokes a little on other installs so I figured I'd make sure this Kali goes on my UHS card. I'm using this windisk v11 that mdjr or odroid made that zeros out the disk and verifies. I had tried previous with v2 as well. It shows as being installed properly and boots up with the flashing lights on the boards, but no image on display. I've had luck with this HDMI cable I'm using now and often do not have to boot then plug after the first phase like previous tricks to get display. I still tried this plug trick after the first light goes out, as well leaving it plugged in before, and waiting a few minutes after also. Nothing I try seems to get this to display, but it does seem to be installed as it's flashing blue/red on my board. Do you have any ideas of what I might try? I don't currently have a UART cable to help out troubleshooting this. It's not the end of the world but I did want to run this eventually on a spare sd card so I've been compelled to keep trying with no luck. I understand there's not much you can do without having this or me using a UART to help with logs and such, but figured I'd ask if you can think of any tricks or solutions I may have avail. Thank you sir.

ps - I also tried swearing and that didn't seem to help either. Often I've found that profanity helps with troubleshooting and fixing computer issues but it has not produced results thus far.

Thank you for even working on this for folks. I'm assuming it's an issue on my end though. The only reason I asked is due to all my other cards and installs working fine. I'm actually going to install these other Linux version avail right now and test boot up, click around, then wipe it out and test the next. I just need to test linaro server and fedora build, the rest have worked fine. Like I said it's just for clicking and fooling with stuff. Don't waste too much effort. If it boots up for you on an sd card then I'll just keep trying different things and swear words until it displays :twisted:. If there is anything I can do to help you help me, I'm all for it.

I'll look into it, thank you for letting me know. I plan to polish up and create some new -XU images next month, and I will post back once a new image is uploaded.

If you happen to have the USB-UART adapter, please post the Xorg.0.log and boot log if possible. It's likely the the exynoshw5composer isn't starting.

I tried the image stored on the server, and it doesnt boot up properly due to some services not starting.

I will repost another version once I re-test my master copy.

Its on my list! I will have some time next week now that we have the February issue of Odroid Magazine published.

Dont worry, I got you covered, and will post back once its on the server. Kali is one of my favorite distros :)

I havent used Kali with a touchscreen but if you create a new thread, the HK devs may be able to assist you with the necessary OS modifications.

What chipset doss the alfa card use? If its working on other Linux images, it will probably also work on Kali.

I can confirm that the RTL drivers are working with Alfa cards... I used the current image that rob posted,
wrote it to an sd card,
plugged the sd card in,
plugged my U3 in,
plugged in my alfa card,
started kismet... everything worked without any errors... that was simple!

however it was wlan3 because rob has been playing around on his ported kali image with wifi cards as well, before uploading it :p

edited because i know i posted about the U3 in the XU forums, but the way rob is compiling these images, is maintaining the stock image's working config files and drivers... I've got 5 sd cards with his images on them, and all of them are working exactly as a normal operating system should work.

I'm still planning to patch this image so that it boots properly. My last attempt didn't get past starting gdm3, so I'm going to have to do it again from scratch.

In the meantime, while you wait for my updated version to be released, you can try converting the U2/U3 version of Kali to XU on your own, by following the steps that @mdrjr outlined here: http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 207#p16999.

I think its not that easy as wepsecured512 posted
I have installed the Image more than 10 times but I became a graphical output just 2 times.
But after resizing them with Gparted or update/upgrade them the Image boots but the graphic output is gone.
I have tested it with XU and XU-E and different HDMI cables.

I had a working Kali XU image when I first posted it, but now the kernel panics whenever I try to install the downloaded image due to file corruption. Kali XU is next on my list now that the March issue of Odroid magazine has been finalized.

Glad to know alfa is working. But if it was all so easy to get it going out of the box id have it going like all the other images i have from rob i think your doing some serious bum licking my friend and rubbing it in the faces of people like myself who DONT have a working image of kali on the U3

I wish you a happy bum licking journey through life :D

Kali Fortress for the U2/3 is working properly. I just downloaded it from the server and successfully booted it on my U3.

Also, this is the XU thread :)

now heres some other ip's its communicating with
149.157.192.5
193.1.31.66
54.229.222.210
54.194.18.100

is there anyway i can stop this without using a firewall and blocking connections
and why is it happening is this sending information about me so it can display ads
heres a description of NTP from wireshark website

Network Time Protocol (NTP)

NTP is used to synchronize the clock of a network client with a server.

The NTP server will (hopefully) have the precise time (probably directly from an atomic clock).

The NTP client asks the NTP server about the current time, and then will set it's internal clock to that value.

XXX - add some info about precision, network latency, "smoothly" setting the clock and alike.


so why do i need to synchronize with these big companys if my clock is already set??????
seems pretty suspicious to me seems like someones colecting info with there "ATOMIC CLOCK" ha

You can try uninstalling the ntpd service. I also recommend posting your questions on the Kali forums. The image is straight from their official repository.

Do you know what ntp is? It syncs your odroid date/time from the internet..

id just like to know why does the odroid image of kali need all of these extra things such as vino-serv
and is it important to keep the ntpd service on the odroid for some sort of reason

Vino is a VNC Server. Its running there in case that people doesn't have a screen connected. Don't like it? Remove it.

I have no idea what gnome-pan is or what its trying to do.. Google it.

NTP is because some users doesn't have a battery backup accessory on XU, so..... It has to keep clock syncronized from external factors.

All of that.. Is pure Google knowledge.

robroy,
First, I want to say thanks for the new image... I'm having a couple issues, one i was able to fix, the other I'm a little stuck.

1. When connecting via console hwcomposer is throwing out "dennis -- ???". I was able to fix that by modifying /etc/rc.local and adding "> /dev/null 2>&1" to the exec statement.

2. When connecting via console there's no terminal access when the boot sequence completes. Do you know what I can do to remedy this?

Thanks again for your hard-work.

In my next release, I'll update the version of hwcomposer being used. "Dennis" is a debug statement from an older version.

I noticed this too but was also unable to get a console prompt after boot. I ended up using SSH instead.

Ok, just got my XU and I'm having issues getting anything to boot on it.

UART output:
http://pastebin.com/G0GYpv4H

it gets stuck with that bit at the end and just keeps repeating that, the fan stops and I get a 'No Signal' on the TV.
I need to order a display port to minDP cable to be able to attach the Apple Thunderbolt monitor but I dont even know if it will support that resolution.

I'm using a fully 1080p LG TV.

The fan is supposed to stop after boot. The repeating "Dennis" means that an HDMI signal is being produced. Try removing your XU from the case, as it sometimes prevents the micro HDMI connector from making full contact.

Ok, I get invalid format.

exynos5_open,4264 -- using
xres = 1920 px
yres = 1080 px
width = 0 mm (2147483.647000 dpi)
height = 0 mm (2147483.647000 dpi)
refresh rate = 60 Hz

The width and height look a bit odd. other than that that is all right. I dont see the color depth in the uart log is it called something odd? I'm not sure what the color bit depth of my TV is, I'll have to look. I found a DP to DVI cable I can try tomorrow when I have a DVI monitor on hand, not sure if that should even work, I don't know what the DP to DVI conversion is, but I'll try it.

There are several alternative boot.scr files that you can experiment with in /media/boot. First try dropping the resolution to 720p and see if you get a signal.

Ok, I set the display params to 720p 60Hz (1280x720) in boot.ini with no success.

I even tried setting output to DP and DVI and using a DP to DVI cable.
I tried this with two Odroid-XU units with the same results so I'm pretty sure it's a configuration issue, just not sure what.

The display I am using here in the office is a Samsung T240HD ( http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/T240HD )

From the manual:

Synchronization
Horizontal 30 ~ 81 kHz
Vertical 56 ~ 75 Hz

Display Color
16.2M

Resolution
Optimum resolution 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz
Maximum resolution 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz


I dont have the specs on the TV I was using last night, but it is an LG 47GA6400.

Also, the image I am using is: Kali-3.4.75_Fortress-XU-HDMI.20140308.img just to be clear.
