    Live Build a Custom Kali ISO 01/02/2015 ))6 failed attempts((

    Kali 1.09a x86 guest installed (40gb)
    Windows 8 x64 host
    VMware workstation 10 /VMware player 6

    1st try was by the numbers following the instructions here..
    Code:
    http://docs.kali.org/downloading/live-build-a-custom-kali-iso
    5 failed attempts there after following various threads here and elsewhere.

    This is how I proceeded this last attempt;

    Edited kali source lst:

    Code:
    deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://http.kali.org/kali kali main/debian-installer
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    
    deb [arch=i386,amd64,armel,armhf] http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    (editing kali source lst finally allowed me past step one of the instructions)
    I would get this:
    root@kali:~# apt-get install git live-build cdebootstrap
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package live-build is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'live-build' has no installation candidate
    E: Unable to locate package cdebootstrap

    The began following the Live Build a Custom Kali ISO instructions

    apt-get update
    apt-get install git live-build cdebootstrap kali-archive-keyring
    git clone git://git.kali.org/live-build-config.git
    cd live-build-config
    lb config

    Edited config/package-lists/kali.list.chroot as so...

    # kali meta-package depends on everything we want
    kali-linux-full
    kali-root-login
    kali-defaults
    kali-menu
    kali-debtags
    kali-archive-keyring
    debian-installer-launcher
    alsa-tools
    cryptsetup

    # provide l10n for everybody

    #endif

    # Graphical desktops depending on the architecture
    #
    # You can replace all the remaining lines with a list of the
    # packages required to install your preferred graphical desktop
    # or you can just comment everything except the package of your
    # preferred desktop.

    # *** KDE DESKTOP ***
    kali-defaults
    kali-root-login
    desktop-base
    kde-plasma-desktop
    kde-full
    kdm
    wicd-kde

    lb config --architecture i386

    lb build

    here is the end of the terminal output;
