View Full Version : Help with installing Kali on chromebook

2021-10-06, 21:10
I have chromebook flip c100p and would like to install Kali on 64 gb micro USB since the chromeOS is EOL.

I have gone through this page and related pages - https://www.kali.org/docs/arm/asus-chromebook-flip/ .

I have Kali running off USB on my desktop, trying to use the Kali ARM build script for this chromebook to create img file but I cant figure it out.

The example in the readme is:
cd ~/
git clone https://gitlab.com/kalilinux/build-scripts/kali-arm
cd ~/kali-arm/
sudo ./common.d/build_deps.sh
sudo ./rpi.sh

The build script for this chromebook is "chromebook-veyron.sh"

So how do I adjust the example to make it work for this chromebook. I tried replaceing build_dps.sh with chromebook-veyron.sh with no luck and some other permutations.

I think you should replace "rpi.sh" with "chromebook-veyron.sh" since the example in kali's git lab is about Raspberry Pi device but you're trying to build it for Asus Chromebook c100p device.

Hi! I'm building my own image for Acer CB5-311 (arm, n-tegra cpu);

After long running

sudo ./chromebook-nyan.sh kali

I got an error:
