You can download it straight onto your pi and install it like this:
wget -O re4son-kernel_current.tar.xz https://re4son-kernel.com/download/re4son-kernel-current/ tar -xJf re4son-kernel_current.tar.xz cd re4son-kernel_4* ./install.sh
That’ll set it up properlySeptember 28, 2018 at 9:02 am in reply to: Alfa AWUS036ACH not working on Kali-Raspberry Pi 3 #13479
The image you are using should already include everything your need.
All 2018.3 images on the kali website and the images on my download site:
contain the re4son-kernel with the latest drivers for the AWUS036ACH.
Which archive did you unpack to find those files?September 27, 2018 at 8:59 am in reply to: Alfa AWUS036ACH not working on Kali-Raspberry Pi 3 #13477
There shouldn’t be any need to compile the drivers, the latest kernel includes them already. Have you tried these steps?
Not sure why – I don’t have any issues with touch running the latest kernel on an up to date Kali. I’m running KDE though. Are you on Gnome?
I’ve released a new mainline kernel that fixes it:
Install the mainline version and then you can remove the hold and upgrade the package safely.
The latest update of the “firmware-brcm80211” package is the culprit.
Just remove the new package and re-install the old one for now:
1. Remove the old package:
apt remove firmware-brcm80211
2. use an ethernet connection of download on another computer and transfer via USB stick:
3. Install the package:
apt install ./firmware-brcm80211_20170823-1_all.deb
I am working on a permanent solution.
Let me look into that.
you can use the new “kalipi-tft-config”, which has replaced the pi-tft-setup tool and comes with all new images. I configured a Keidei last week with it and it worked like a charm.
The Pi can only output to either tft or hdmi and switches to tft midway through the booting process. That’s when you see the hdmi output freeze.
Hope that helps,
tigervnc does only permit vnc sessions from localhost by default.
You have to either tunnel vnc through ssh or change the default configuration.
Here’s a howto for establishing ssh tunnels:
Hope that helps,
Did you establish an ssh tunnel first? Remember that the vnc server only accepts connections from localhost by default.
Hmmm, strange. I’ve just used a fresh Sticky Fingers image, started vnc and connected without any problems. Did an apt full-upgrade, rebooted and still worked like a charm.
Which image did you use?
Odd, let me investigate
Sorry for these problems and thanks for the hints. I’ve started working on that a while ago in the dev branch and will hopefully finish it on the weekend with your input.
Not quite, my 32 GB image gets compressed to 14 GB.
I use dd to create periodic backups of all my raspberry pi sd cards.
I’ve included my backup and restore scripts in the kernel packages under :./src-tools”:
Does that help?
I did a bit of digging through their github repo and they seem to be using a bastardized closed source version of the standard ili9488 driver.
I’ll see if I can get one of those babies in Australia and I’ll have a bit of a play.
what screen do you have?
just configure “/home/pi/Kali-Pi/menu” for the Pi70, e.g:
export KPSCREENSIZE=5.0 export KPLAYOUT=9 export KPPIN=0 #export KPTIMEOUT=2 export KISMETVER=1 export TFT=4
That should do the trick
The existing one.
Which type did you use when you ran re4son-pi-tft-setup?
I’ve uploaded the new images. Should work now.
Sorry for that.
the Raspberry Pi screen should work out of the box with the Sticky Fingers image. Just run
cd /usr/local/src/re4son-kernel_4* ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -t pi70 -d /root
That should do the trick.
Please let us know how you go,
could you post the content of your “/boot/config.txt” please?
I might have to create a separate type for this screen if the generic doesn’t work. Shouldn’t be a problem though.
Sorry for that and thanks for letting me know. I have to refresh the images with a new kernel to make it work on a 3B+. Will do it tonight. I’ll let you know when they are available for download.
I’ll look into the lost mirror entry in the sources list.
Dolphin doesn’t work for root. Was a design decision by the developers.:
You can use Konquerer instead.
I’m powering mine with a couple of Mi 16000:
David tweeted his setup with a bunch of Anker power banks that go the distance:
Hope that helps,
