    Angry Need assistance installing Kali Linux on the seeed reTerminal

    Here's a link to the "getting started" bit of this pain in the *** device.

    https://wiki.seeedstudio.com/reTermi...os-or-other-os

    In order to use the built-in DSI display, "drivers" need to be installed.

    Additionally, using the Raspberry Pi imager and ensuring all the settings for WiFi are correct and ensuring that the settings for SSH are enabled with the imager, the device fails to connect to WiFi and thus, fails SSH in order to install the required drivers.

    I am successful at connecting via SSH with RetroPie and the basic Raspberry Pi OS (that also, once the default OS is overwritten requires the "drivers" to be installed).

    Again, Additionally, I tried connecting an external HDMI display, and although I DID see a login screen, using a wired keyboard would not type, and my mouse (Logitech M570) would not move the mouse cursor.

    I am STUCK.

    IS there a way (using windows (preferred) or Raspbian) to create a custom ISO that includes the required drivers? (and friggin keyboard support?)

    Installing the drivers requires running a script?

    I would like to continue to use this device as is has a TON of potential BUT:

    ***I am a COMPLETE Linux novice***

    WHY Kali? Because.

    I found a solution to the USB input issue and thus was able to login to Kali with HDMI external display attached.

    add this to your /boot/config.txt

    dtoverlay=dwc2,dr_mode=host

    HOWEVER I am still unable to to get the DSI display to work.

    There are instructions to install the display drivers:

    Code:
    • Step 1. Clone the following repo
    • git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/seeed-linux-dtoverlays
    • Step 2. Enter the repo
    • cd seeed-linux-dtoverlays
    • Step 3. Type the following to install the drivers
    • sudo ./scripts/reTerminal.sh

    The script ultimately fails with this at the end:

    Code:
    ┌──(kali㉿kali-raspberry-pi)-[~/seeed-linux-dtoverlays]
    └─$ sudo ./scripts/reTerminal.sh
