I'm looking for a pen-testing toolkit for Linux. I tried using Kali, Parrot, Backbox and Blackarch and all failed to work.

Kali and Parrot wouldn't install due to the outdated installer looking for cdroms despite me installing from a USB. Backbox was an unpolished buggy mess and blackarch wouldn't even connect to the Internet.

I figure it'd be a better idea to install my favorite Linux distro and install some kind of pen-testing toolkit. I'm using it to test my websites for vulnerabilities so I prefer something with tools based around that, or at least has the capability for it.

    For Kali you use win32diskimager and the iso/img. You don't need an installer

    @SteffTek Yeah but my USB drive is like 8GB and when I create a new user account on Kali, it breaks the entire system.

    @EclipseMain that doesn't make any sense

    Ehmm, if you install kali with pesistent it will work fine

    Blackarch didnt connect to internet because YOU didnt enable internet. sudo systemctl start dhcpcd.

    Depends on what you're testing.

    Also you can always make one yourself

    Lol "blackarch didn't connect to the internet" .

    That's so funny.
    If you don't know how to use Linux, don't start with pentesting via Linux.
    Oh and btw arch has a good wiki. If you just googled your problem...

    So jokes on you

    I have used Kali for 2 years, 2014, 15. It works really well, installed from USB. I'm not sure why you can't install tho

    I smell something like a noob that trying to blame hacker tools for his own ignorance.
