    How to recover from out of disk space error?

    I installed kali in virtualbox. Not knowing how much space I needed, I created a disk size of 25GB. The automatic partitioning mechanism created 8GB of swap and 17GB for kali.

    I installed and updated kali. I added a few packages (the Nvidia and CUDA stuff) and followed the instructions for building a custom ISO.

    I ran

    Code:
    ./build.sh --distribution kali-rolling --verbose
    It finished with errors. Here is the section of the build.log that shows the errors:

    Code:

    It took hours for this whole process. If I increase the disk size in virtualbox (by how much?), is there a way to continue building the custom ISO from where it left off or do I have to start from scratch?

    I would recommend using the provided virtual machine images. However, if you insist on using your own, first delete that whole directory and then find out where the 17GB is mounted to then work there. 17Gb should be plenty to build an ISO.

    I started over and used kali-linux-2017.3-vbox-amd64 image.

    What follows is the error and resulting failure of the creation of the ISO.

    It looks like a file on the mirror is corrupted.

    How can I recover from this error?

    Can I get the file from a different mirror, put it in the correct location and continue the ISO creation process from where it stopped?
