    Hi,

    Can you give us more details about your environment ? the architecture your are trying to build ? the steps you did before "lb build" ?

    Hi root-boy,

    In my case none of the amd64 isos would work, unless I have to disable the pentest tools, so I had to download the vm image and install it.
    Install went fine, and VM start just fine. (took a snapshot)
    Update the VM downloaed about 900mb of updates.. (weired). (took a snapshot)

    Prepare for the iso build:

    apt-get install git live-build cdebootstrap kali-archive-keyring
    then clone the git :
    git clone git://git.kali.org/live-build-config.git
    goto the build dir :
    cd live[TAB]
    make the changes in the --> config/package-lists/kali.list.chroot comment all the Gnome desktop lines, and add the one I wanted for instance mc.
    nano -w config/package-lists/kali.list.chroot
    and since the image is an x86_32 arch, I did this step after the kali.list.chroot edit in case it reads the changes done to the said file:
    dpkg --add-architecture amd64
    apt-get update
    and then set the lb config to an x86_64 arch, this way:
    ln -sf wheezy /usr/share/live/build/data/debian-cd/kali
    lb config --architecture amd64
    and then build the iso:
    lb build.

    Hello root-boy, I have a 32bit architecture desktop with kali 1.0 gnome version installed, but I wanted to build a KDE 64bit image for my laptop, and so I went like this:

    apt-get install git live-build cdebootstrap kali-archive-keyring
    git clone git://git.kali.org/live-build-config.git
    cd live-build-config
    the I edited properly(at leat I think I did) config/package-lists/kali.list.chroot
    dpkg --add-architecture amd64
    apt-get update
    lb config --architecture amd64
    lb build
    ---//-----

    and then I got that error :\

    OK, i think you are getting this error because you're trying to build a 64bit ISO on a 32bit architecture. try to do it on kali 64bit and give me the results.

    Hi Hollow Man,

    I had the same problem - so I did the following:

    > echo deb http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-bleeding-edge main >> /etc/apt-sources.list
    > apt-get update --fix-missing
    > apt-get upgrade
    > apt-get dist-upgrade
    > cd live-build-config
    > lb clean
    > lb config --architecture i386
    > lb build

    After that, this old little lady of a single-core i386 laptop built my LXDE build. Here's what I built it on:
    > uname -a
    Linux Onyx 3.7-trunk-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.7.2-0+kali8 i686 GNU/Linux

    I hope this helps. Cheers!
