Hey,

 

i would like to create a persistent file for Kali Linux like in the folowing link http://www.easy2boot...es/persistence/

 

Under Sample MNU files are only files for Kali Linux 1.0.7 and not 2.0 or 2016.1. So i have uses the 1.0.7 mnu file and followed all instructions in the guide. Kali boots well but i have no persistent drive mounted after start ot the os. So i think i need a mnu file for the actual Kali Version.

 

Does someone have a MNU-File for newer Kali Linux versions?

 

Thanks!

 

JimboV

Did you follow the instructions in the .mnu file and make a  ext2 file?

 Yep followed all steps. I think i need just a new mnu file. For kali Linux 1.0.6, 1.0.5 .... there are also seperate mnu files in the Sample MNU folder...

I tried the 1.0.7 mnu file and changed it to use 2016

 

set ISO=$HOME$/kali-linux-light-2016.1-i386.iso
set PERS=/kali2016-rw

 

 

  1. I created an ext2  file (name=kali2016-rw  volume name=persistence)  300MB
  2. I booted to first menu option for KALI and mounted the  sdx3 partition and created the persistence.conf file as detailed here.
  3. I then rebooted and chose the Kali+persistence option in the Kali boot menu
  4. I can now change the Desktop wallpaper and save files and folders to the Desktop, when I reboot, they are still there.

So AFAIK, the mnu file works.

You really probably shouldn't be using persistence with Kali, especially if you plan to use it for anything potentially illegal (or maybe you don't want to see your activities discovered). It would be like Tails with persistence. Best to just use these "live" or in a VM.

Hehe that's not true bro, persistence with Kali doesn't mean someone is doing something illegal. For your information Kali updates the OS via rolling-Release. I don't wanna update every use of Kali 1 hour my OS new so I need persistence. Also pentesting isnt an illegal thing. :) maybe you think all Security guys evil, but that's not true bro.

Edit: Persistence works now...

P.S. If you are going to use Kali+Persistence a lot, I recommend that you reformat the  persistence volume as ext3. In my experience, ext2 can get easily corrupted when running from a USB drive. A corrupted persistence file can stop it from booting too.

So before you make the persistence.conf file, reformat the mounted volume as ext3 (don't forget to label the volume as 'persistence').
