    Linux deploy fails to mount when mounting kali linux & other liux OS's (Galaxy tab S)

    At first I thought it was maybe because I didnt'nt have enough free space on my sd card so I made sure I had 3GB's free but I still got this when I clicked install:
    [13:04:26] Updating configuration file ... done
    [13:04:27] >>> begin: install
    [13:04:27] Checking mount points ... done
    [13:04:27] Checking installation path ... done
    [13:04:27] Making new disk image (512 MB) ... fail
    [13:04:27] <<< end: install

    And this when I try to reconfigure:
    [13:02:49] Updating configuration file ... done
    [13:02:50] >>> begin: configure
    [13:02:50] Mounting partitions:
    [13:02:50] / ... fail
    [13:02:50] <<< end: configure

    When I check my root stutus I get this message:

    The source of the problem probabily is SElinux.
    If you are on Samsung stock rom, please check your SE status on Settings > About Device.
    It will say "Enforcing". All you need to do is to change it to "Permissive".
    On the 4.4+ Samsung roms you are not able to change SE status,
    so you will need a custom kernel either with SE fully disabled or with
    the flag "EXTRA_CFLAGS += -DCONFIG_ALWAYS_ENFORCE" set to false
    so you can change it on the fly. On Samsung newer roms that flag is compiled as "true".

    On XDA (http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-tab-s) you can find
    a plethora of kernels with all flavors of customizations. Or you choose one
    among them or if you prefer a more stock one you can compile from source
    and change only the flag above.

    If you need help bulding your own Kernel please let me know, i might help you out.
