I never used Kali before (I have used its predecessor BackTrack in the past) but if the OP can't tell the difference between .iso and .iso.torrent I really think Kubuntu or Mint is a better idea.

Sorry. I thought the post in #17 was what the OP had done. I realized on review that they haven't actually shown us what they did, except to say "I clicked on the 1st and 3rd links," which, as has already been noted, work just fine for everyone else that's tried it, including me.

So, TokTok, no, we can't explain why you're only getting the torrent.iso file instead of the 2GB, would-have-taken-5mins-for-me-to-download .iso, but that's what's happening. You speculate that "it could be the browser" but we don't know as you've even not told us what browser you're using.

Even clicking on the link in #17 starts the download.

Are you paying attention to the fact that you REALLY shouldn't be using Kali for anything at this stage??
I have used it before a long time ago but did not like much but has a few things i would like to try and see no need to pay for it if i can download it free right from the source.

Well i figured it out myself just had to use a different browser so now i have the 2GB iso etc. / Odd several expert`s or experienced users cannot solve a simple problem but a newbie can...

Well, that is just false. You told only half of the story therefore there was no real way to catch it. Actually details were requested in post #4. [Obviously] this is the reason [why nobody could help you to solve it].

Aside from commercially supported distros, ALL versions of Linux are 'free right from the source'; no idea what you're talking about here with the reference to paying for Kali. And again, you provide ZERO DETAILS about the 'few things' you'd like to try....and again, ANY version of Linux can do exactly what Kali does, as you've been told several times.

Even more odd that despite being asked this 'newbie' can't answer a simple question like what browser you were using, etc. And since you're now saying you're a 'newbie', it's odd that you say you've used Kali before a 'long time ago'...if you've been using Linux for a long time, how are you a newbie???

And since you're now complaining about the answers you get here (despite several people trying to help you, and you NEVER answering questions), you may be better off at another forum, right?

Wrong,a few here need to learn to respect others more than they do so the rest of us are better off and the forum in general. I did provide enough to get the correct answer but nobody was able to, maybe a little bit to difficult to answer / diagnose . I only have limited amount of time so answering all posts is not a option nor a necessity especially when they are of no help or very rude and don`t know the correct answer to begin with. I used a few linux distros MANY Years ago and not since then as i never liked it very much due to lack of development and lack of ease of use- things it still suffers from but it is now much better. From what i see not all distros have the same features and don`t want to make a ant mound into mountain in other words get in over my head, make it more difficult than it need be. So you have never looked on ebay for a OS, all of them are there for sale linux or not.PS. Remember, This is a Newbie friendly forum but obviously much can`t be expected from SOME here how long they have been here is irrelevant, it`s the quality of what you know that actually count`s not how long you have been here.

Wrong, a actual expert or long time user would have picked up om it right away no need for complete specifics of system configuration. Simply a matter of basic trouble shooting.

No, you didn't...that is obvious by the number of times people **KEPT ASKING YOU** to provide more information. You STILL haven't; saying 'different browser' tells us nothing. You were asked repeatedly what you were doing, and never said, and multiple people here (including myself) tried it with different browsers, and wget from the command line, with zero problems.

If you can't be bothered to follow up, why should we be bothered to answer? And again...NO ONE but you had a problem downloading anything, using the exact 'method' you claimed to use. You never said what you were doing, with what browser, on what OS, etc., etc....just complained that it didn't work.

No, I don't look on eBay for Linux, since I can download any of them for free. And nothing you've said here makes any logical sense....'lack of development'??? It is on a faster development track than ANY other OS, ever. Updates are frequent, and most people here use nothing but Linux, and have for many years. And yes, all the distros have all the same 'features'...they may just be called something different. Yum for Red Hat based distros, zypper for SuSE, apt-get for Debian...but they all do the same things.

Right; and you're claiming that no one here could solve your 'newbie' problem, yet you won't tell us what you did to 'solve' this. A guess would be that you clicked the right button after numerous tries.

I am glad you figured out the problem. I posted the pertinent rules just as a reminder and that snarky comments as the above will start an instant flame war.
