Kali linux - Raspberry Pi 4B having problems booting up help


hi there , i'm having issues booting up kali linux on my raspberry pi 4b, i was able to flash and boot up the rasbian OS without any problems, so its not my micro sd port or my raspberry pi that's the problem, i've went through 2 micro sd cards and am now flashing directly to a USB stick. so i'm thinking its the Kali Linux Arm. i've tried the 32 bit and 64 bit and both came up with the same result. i keep getting the

1.121520 platform_drv_probe=0x5c/0b0
1.122121 really_probe+0xe8/0x420
1.122730 driver_probe_device+0x60/0xf0

so on and so on then it ends with this,
1.1324491 note: swapper/0[1] exited with preempt_count1
---[ end kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b ]----
SMP: stopping secondary CPUs
Kernel Offset: disabled
CPU features: 0x0002,20006000
memore limit: none
---[ end kernel panic - not syncing: attemped to kill init!


if there's any other information needed please feel free to ask. i appreciate the help.

first of all: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ad-4175614092/
kali is not the easy case, it looks like you make more troubles for yourself. Use RPi OS, that works without problems.
From the other hand I guess you missed some steps during preparation/installation/configuration, but what you posted is not really enough to diagnose. Dropping in a few lines of error messages is just insufficient.

Did you verify the downloaded image file?

Yes, Pi OS should run the same apps.

Still useless
Did you verify the image? Did you follow the installation instructions?

Kali is nothing more than Debian with pen testing apps organized using menus. Do what I do and add the apps you need to whatever flavor of the week you are running and be done with it, or run Kali in a VM. Save yourself some trouble.

EDIT - I just realized VMs may not be possible with a Pi - I have zero familiarity with them so my comment is probably moot...

The issue could very well be drivers. The Pi uses a very specific chipset for video, network, and usb so that might be the thing to look at.

that is a specialized image for rpi, so I don't think there can be a driver issue.

Kali has a specialized image for the Pi?
Since it is designed for security testing I did not anticipate that and had not checked since I have yet to use kali. Thanks for the info.

Just install rpios and add the Kali repos, then you can install whatever tools you need and have a stable OS that just works.

No or yes. kali is based on debian and this version of kali is based on raspberry os, which is actually based on debian but a special distribution for rpi (containing everything required to use that hw).

There is nothing all that special. The vast majority of the programs are straight from the Debian sources. The only things really they have different are the kernel they provide and some scripts for managing the machine. Even then the Debian images of the Pi for download have everything needed to run on a Pi and are binary compatible with their Pi installs. To get the vcgencmd command for instance all that is required is copying it and the two libraries missing to your Debian install from the compatible Pi version and it just works. A bonus for using Debian is the 10C lower the temperature it runs at on the thing and seeing a load of under 1 like it always is over on a PiOS down to a puny next to nothing when the machine is doing nothing like it should be on Debian.
