Kali Linux for Pinebook Pro - stuck on the login screen
#1
Hi everyone,

I want to be able to run kali off of the pinebook pro as needed via the SD card. I followed the Pinebook Pro installation instructions here: https://www.kali.org/docs/arm/pinebook/

* Download and validate the kali linux image
* flash the kali-linux-2023.2-pinebook-pro-arm64.img file to the SD card (note, no errors or issues took place on flashing the SD card)
* insert the SD card to the pinebook pro
* start the machine

From here, I'll see what appears to be the boot process loading which is a wall of text. Note that I saw several "FAILED" "Failed to start ssh.service - OpenBSD SecureShell error, etc.

kali-pinebook-pro login: 
password:

After the booting process stops, I am dropped into a CLI login screen. I attempt to use the kali login defaults e.g. username: kali and password kali which shows as invalid. Does anyone have the default login and password or can we determine if I did something horribly wrong?



Thank you!
