Question Kali linux on a samsung chromebook 2?


Hello, I am new to the forums and i was just wondering if there was anyway of putting kali linux on a bootable usb to boot on my chromebook? I have saw other videos and it looks possible, but i have tried a bunch of ways. Yet they never work!! If anyone cn help me that will be great, thanks.

i take it you did not bother to READ the Kali install instructions on the web site!
install the LIVE image to a FULLY encrypted usb thumb drive and add PERSISTENCE

as it
FALLOW THE ALREADY POSTED INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS

http://www.kali.org/official-documentation/

PS
if you need help
then kali is NOT a operating system you want to use

it IS EXPECTED !!!! that the user has about a Masters degree in computer sciences and a minor in network security
-- and that is just to use most of the tools

a PHD or like( real world trainning from "Offensive Security") would be best

For that training you NEED to pass a test that really dose REQUIRE a masters degree
http://www.offensive-security.com/in...th-kali-linux/


a better choice for a "new to linux" user
is to start with the training wheels on
install mint 17



as to a notebookj install

the kali developers turned OFF the wireless networking -- security reasons
YOU have to be able to turn it back on
-- think of it a your FIRST test

Okay heres the deal:

I have followed the instruction on here and yet it STILL does not work!

The second thing is that i dont need any masters degree of any sort JUST to use an OS. I am not a beginner with linux operating systems, I have used linux for a while, and am not a newbie.

Now, i have done this before on my laptop. Its just my chromebook i have a problem with. I would try putting it on a usb and booting with usb persistence and when i try to go to the boot menu on my chromebook it will make an annoying beeping noise and wont do a thing. I will keep trying to get this to work, but if you can find any other way to make this work, please let me know. Thanks

That depends on the OS, does it not? Ubuntu, Slackware, Kali have different degrees of requisite knowledge.

I have no idea where on the learning curve you are, but length of time using a system has no relevance to knowledge level. Especially if the only system someone has used is a point-and-click system like Ubuntu or Windows. Some people know more after using Linux for a few months than others (like me) learn after a few years.

Kali is not designed to be an everyday OS. So the most important question is; Why do you want to use a system designed for security industry professionals for the purpose of testing security? As JohnVV pointed out, generally speaking, Kali is the kind of system where if one needs to ask for help, one is not ready to use it.

I am only asking for help because i have obtained my chromebook a week ago and i am just wanting to learn how to boot that OS off my USB. I dont know why it had to come to stuff like master degrees in whatever, but i just want to know HOW to boot it off a usb. If we can please focus on that, that will be great! Thanks.

Have you checked the Kali forum and IRC channel? I quickly found this post in a thread on their forum.
Quote:
The XE500C21 has an Intel Atom processor. I think, the image you're trying to use was made for an ARM processor. I'm not sure if there is a x86 image that will work with your Chromebook or not, but I'm sure the ARM version will not work. Sorry if this is no help, but at least you know why it doesn't work.
This suggests that Kali might not work on all Chromebooks.

there is a ARM chromebook image
https://www.offensive-security.com/k...mage-download/


but
networking is disabled by default by the developers
( a security measure)

you will have to re-enable it for use on a handheld tablet

install it as you would any other disk image

and a ARM "EL"( little endian ) and "HF"

BUT
the samsung2 has a intel celeron cpu
http://www.pcworld.com/article/28345...ss-design.html
BUT
it might also have something different
so you need to match the cpu with the version of kali


BUT
again ,almost all the "SPECIAL" software is nvidia CUDA ready
so to use kali you really do need a very high end dual slot nvidia card
Also and this is a BIG ISSUE !!!!!

there is ONLY ONE USER

ROOT !!!
there is NO normal user account
