    Headless Kali on RPi4...

    Hi Guys.

    I am trying to setup headless Kali Linux on Raspberry Pi 4.

    I was following the tutorial here:

    https://www.raspberrypi.org/document...ss/headless.md

    to connect RPi to my WiFi by creating and putting wpa_supplicant.conf on boot partition. However RPi does not connect.

    Is there any other way on Kali to setup fully headless RPi?

    Thanks for any help.

    I'm currently pulling my hair out with the exact same issue. Did you ever find a solution??

    Unfortunately with Kali this will not work, you will need to either connect it via ethernet and use "nmtui" to connect it to a wifi network, or connect it to an actual monitor and connect it to a wifi network. It's something that I would like to get working in the future, but we use networkmanager, and raspbian does not, which is why it works for them. If someone wanted to work on doing the conversion of the raspbian stuff into what kali uses, and submit it as a pull request, that would be great, but for now, the 2 mentioned workarounds are required. Sorry.

    Thanks steev for giving that bit of information. Now things makes sense. I got my wifi to work fine with networkmanager and able to ensure it connects on boot. But the built-in wifi on the RPi doesn't detect the 5.8Ghz. It only sees the 2.4GHz. Is that a limitation also of the current version of the Kali Linux distro?
