    Solving linux-headers-3.7-trunk-amd64 not found

    I had a lot of trouble installing the kernel-headers for 3.7 in Kali. Turns out that the repositories no longer contain the packages for these headers.

    I solved it using the debian archive:

    Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list :

    deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/d...30201T032911Z/ experimental main contrib non-free


    Then give this command ( to ignore timestamping in the old archive):

    apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false update

    Now you're set to install the headers with this command:

    apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)


    When done it's probably wise to remove the extra line from sources.list

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    i had the same issue... don't copy and past the link as it wont give you the entire link. click on the link, let it open in browser and copy that link into your /etc/apt/sources.list
