    No tools for the Raspberry pi armel image ?

    Im used to linux to begin with. I know how kali works - At least I thought.
    Got the latest kali armel image for RPI. Extracted it and use win32 imager to put that sucker on on a 16 gig SD card.
    It boots just fine. I ssh into it. Change password and reconfigure the SSH keys. I do the apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.
    It updates but i get no tools such as wash.
    Ok.. No problem. apt-get install kali-linux should do it right ?
    No dice. Still no wash nor any reaver.
    Airodump-ng is there though.

    I cant even apt-get install wash as there are no package by that name.. dafug ? the sources.list does have the kali repo but.. No tools ??
    What am I doing wrong ? Im only interessed in using it headless so i use it by SSH to it. I got it wired to my network and a TP-Link with external antenna to use.

    What am I doing wrong since i cant even install the tools i need ? It cant seem to find any packages by the name wash.
    And how do i get it to keep working when i disconnect from putty ? I need it to keep going even while im logged off.

    The ARM images are 'lighter' than the standard desktop ISO images out of the box.
    If you wish to have the same tools, you can install 'kali-linux-full' (which isn't the same as 'kali-linux' - which is what you are doing)
    apt-get install kali-linux-full


    The kali-linux metapackage is a completely bare-bones installation of Kali Linux and includes various network services such as Apache and SSH, the Kali kernel, and a number of version control applications like git, svn, etc. All of the other metapackages listed below also contain kali-linux.
    Installation Size: 1.5 GB


    When you download a Kali Linux ISO, you are essentially downloading an installation that has the kali-linux-full metapackage installed. This package includes all of the tools you are familiar with in Kali.
    Installation Size: 9.0 GB
    Please note, not every tool has a ARM release...

    For more information:

    'wash' isn't its own program. Its part of another one, 'reaver' (wash is a addon/utility/extension).
    root@kali ~$ apt-cache search wash
    fonts-senamirmir-washra - collection of unicode fonts for the Ethiopic script
    ruby-whitewash - Whitelist-based HTML filter for Ruby
    squirrelmail-viewashtml - SquirrelMail plugin: View mails as HTML
    root@kali ~$ # You can see wash is missing
    root@kali ~$ apt-cache search reaver
    bully - Bully is a new implementation of the WPS brute force attack, written in C.
    reaver - brute force attack tool against Wifi Protected Setup PIN number
    root@kali ~$ # reaver is the package you want =).
    root@kali ~$ #...apt-get install reaver
    For more information:

    ...and on a personal note, I would recommend bully (its more up-to-date than reaver/wash).
