This thread is DISGUSTING. I specifically signed up for an account here to say you should all be absolutely ashamed of your selves.

The people saying you need a 6-year degree from a Univ. in CS ? You are kidding me right? In my 30 years working in this industry, the people with those degrees are exactly the people you do not hire. Also for pen testing? You clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

In fact nobody in this post has any idea, yet act like they are the infallible all-knowing sources of knowledge, when in fact your attacking someone simply asking for help to try and cover for the fact that your 15-year-old a** knows jack s***

The fact that there are people telling this person not to even attempt to give this a go because they dont understand this error, you must lead really sorry lives if you refuse to even try something or learn something new that you might not be familiar with.

What a TOXIC community and DISGUSTING bunch of 'people' you are, I put people in quotes because i think the actual term for some of the people in this thread is ANIMALS.

Disgusting excuses for human beings you all are.


To the original poster, Try Reddit or the Kali forums. This sort of anti-learning and anti-trying attitudes are not tolerated there and you'll actually learn something instead of the 'superiors' telling you not to even try.

Just ignore the above post, all. Reasons have been given, this is just flaming.

AusK, you bumped a six month old thread - and one which hasn't had a response for four months - just to say this. It's really not necessary and unproductive. You're only passing on your own negativity with such posts.

EDIT: you may have missed a pertinent point: Kali is looked on as the 'cool' distro to install by people who want to be 'hackers' [in the modern, trendy sense of the word]. A lot of users who try to run it shouldn't be running it and don't need to run it. In fact, threads about Kali are so common that the following topic had to be made, I suggest you take a look at it for context as to why this thread ended up as it did:

Kali here, Kali there! Why you should not expect detailed answers.

In fact, there is even a sticky:

Using Kali Linux? PLEASE READ!!

Quote:
Kali Linux has been designed for ICT security professionals and is not recommended for Linux newbies/beginners. This is because Kali Linux requires a good understanding of both networking and the administration of Linux based operating systems.

If you are not well-versed in administrating Linux based operating systems, you are strongly advised to choose a far more suitable Linux distribution, as Kali Linux will not be suitable for the newbie/beginner.

In addition, it can be highly frustrating for members of LQ to answer Kali Linux related questions such as (but not limited to) configuring an internet connection, creating user accounts, fixing graphical environment issues, etc. As a consequence, most LQ members may be unwilling to assist people seeking help with basic configuration issues.

This post is the first result for multiple google searches relating to a similar issue with Kali.

Don't get me wrong, I'm in complete agreeance, Kali should absolutely not be used for a desktop - Your post is by far the most reasonable in this thread, you've actually posted a few links to back up what you are saying.

Both links provide context and help from an understanding of why a direct answer to the OPs question is being given.

Posts like the following though:

Quote:
Kali assumes that the user has a Masters degree ( or equivalent ) in computer sciences and is a very*experienced*Linux and Networking user / Administrator*
Complete and utter crap- outright lies in an attempt to come across as intellectually intimidating or something

and

Quote:
It's easy. Kali is a tool for experienced professionals. It is not for you. Remove it.
So because this guy has an issue with a blank screen in Kali, just from that little bit of information, This genius knows that he's not an 'experienced' professional and that its. 'not for him'. Such insight.

They could have:
- Linked to something like the threads you did making sure they understood the level of knowledge that's required to use it
- Kept their mouths shut if they can't contribute anything that's on topic.
- Tried to help at a super basic level like a few later posts

But crap like the above comments is just internet dribble

It's no secret that for at least the last 10 months the official VMWare OVA's have been suffering from this exact same issue, It just looks really bad when someone comes to a forum, asks about a known issue with the software, and is immediately told the issue is because he is not worthy and that he should never use it. I've run into this exact same issue before about 6 months ago and struggled to solve it. I run a company that specializes in security consulting, I've been a systems administrator for 25 years and have specialized in security for the past 10 years. I've got so many industry certifications that I lost count years ago - Yet I still was hit by this issue. A quick google will show hundreds of others suffering the same issue, but instead of pointing that out, they go down the 'your dumb' route

The responses early in this thread = People who don't know the answer to the question but feel the need to be keyboard warriors

Your post I hold no beef with, You are reasonable and provide information to back up your assertions. The other people earlier on in this thread are the gutter trash the security industry has been trying to purge for years.

Sorry guys, The 'I criticize people in order to cover up the fact that I know nothing but love to pretend I do' movement died out in the early 2000's.

wow.
i particularly like the size 3 font.

"well we're sorry you feel like that, but we did want a block of flats - nice though the abattoire is!"

fwiw, i agree most with what was written in post #4.
