Testing kali linux on windows 10 with WSL

Second try :
Kali can be found directly on the windows store. This version is much more stable than the one i tried to patch from ubuntu with the git repo in my first try.

Some usefull tweeks can be found here : https://www.kali.org/news/kali-linux-in-the-windows-app-store/

Everything is working well for now.

Edit 1 )
To make nmap work, install it on windows and make an alias :

alias nmap='"/mnt/c/Program Files (x86)/Nmap/nmap.exe"'

M.

FIRST TRY :
This version is not stable.

WSL stand for windows subsystem for linux

its a kindof native port for linux inside windows. not like emulation, it share the ressources directly from windows to run linux binaries.

To repare fuckedup things at first do those :

To fix error of expired cert. when trying to use apt-get command just do this :

wget https://http.kali.org/kali/pool/main/k/kali-archive-keyring/kali-archive-keyring_2018.1_all.deb
apt install ./kali-archive-keyring_2018.1_all.deb
apt-get update

To fix error when you are not able to resolve address (aka dns is fuckedup)
just edit /etc/resolv.conf and add your favorite dns aka 1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8

after do an apt update && apt upgrade
