Alt to Kali?

I upgraded to Kali 2.0. What a friggin trainwreck!!

aircrack suite is all mucked up and unreliable.

VNC needs to be a different then default windowmanager

etc, etc.

Kali has always been funky but at least usable for the most part.

With PTF, (PenTester's Framework) I'm pondering just doing a more mainstream linux install and using PTF to keep the goodies going.

(I do installs, not live CDs or USB sticks.)

I see very little in that which would specifically benefit from being run under Kali. I'm thinking you should start with Arch Linux. If anything, their documentation seems top notch.

I'm a fan of debian linux mint...

the software portal has everything you need. (Important in my opinion)

apt-cache search ipod

apt-get install ANY_app-you.need

I run kali on a raspberry for my home router... always nice to log into ssh and launch some attacks...

Really I only use Kali for Wireless and has all the kernel drivers and what not. Most of the other tools run where ever. It is a matter of knowing the tools and their best platform and picking that when you have the problem at hand.

Kali can help a lot of the tools are just there out of the box but they might be a little out of date.

I'd never run kali as a router, it's not what it's made for. It's not secured properly for a router. Any router os will be better, even stock d-stink, I mean d-link.

I don't see any risk... the configuration is identical to the pineapple...

You guys took openwrt and installed a few tools that exist on kali...

I took kali and turned it into a fully loaded pineapple.

I wouldn't run the pineapple as a router either. Also not what it's made for.

There are a few tools like veil that are only officially supported on Kali. So you would have to do some monkeying to make them work. Regular tools like aircrack, reaver, nmap, metasploit, john, will run on most Linuxes (Did I spell that right? What the plural or Linux? Should it be pronounced like Linuces, like the plural of matrix is matrices) without issue.

I also agree with what was said with the new aircrack suite on kali 2.0. There are usually a bunch of processes to kill. Not a big deal but when you are trying to automate and not look at error messages in the terminal. It's not bad. It's just more things to consider when you're already busy.

Easy enough to write a script. Just use dpkg --get-selections from kali and create an apt and wget script. Or you could create an ISO with something like aptoncd and and use a script to install from that. It might be a worthwhile group project to write some scripts to install kali tools and tools included on other distros like Bugtraq on almost any Linux. Well at leaast the main Linuxes. Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE, sorry if I missed any there. There are so many.
