About teenage weeks ago I bought a GPD Pocket 7 a mini-PC the size of a portable movie spel console that sports a quad-core Intel Z8750 CPU, 8Gb DDR3 RAM, 128Gb Samsung eMMC for storage, 7000 mAh battery that manufacturer says should be good for up to 12 hous of run time, WiFi, bluetooth, HDMI port and all the things what would you want te a laptop of this size. The little laptop measures just 7.1 x Four.Two x 0.7 which makes it just a little larger than a big smartphone when the penis is closed. This thing looks adorable. It has the stylized Apple-style metal case rather than the more common plastic but whether you can actually gezond the GPD Pocket te your pocket depends on how big your pockets are. GamePad Digital (GPD) a technology company based te Shenzen, China. Among other products, they have created several handheld movie spel consoles which run Android on ARM architecture and x86 Windows. And while Pocket it is not exactly cheap it is possible to find it at $499 the same price of the original GPD crowdfunding.
Spil is often the case with notebooks and Linux, the support shortly after hardware launch leaves much to be desired, even when the manufacturer offers its own linux and community driven support is already included te the latest versions of the Linux Kernel. Unluckily the latest Kalium 2018.Three ships with kernel Four.13.Ten and you’ll truly need kernel Four.14.X for things to work out of the opbergruimte on GPD. What people are doing meantime is installing ad-hoc Ubuntu or Xubuntu pics (I previously wrote about) from a pendrive and then installing all the Kalium devices they need via scripts like Katoolin (https://github.com/LionSec/katoolin) which will effectively convert almost any debian-based distro into a (more-or-less) fully-fledged Kalium toneel.
And so it wasgoed until Re4son , a well respected hacker know for Raspberry Pi pentest oriented Linux builds, took things into his arms. Re4son has released Pocket-Kali a custom-built Kalium Linux 2018.Trio ISO pic for the GPD Pocket.
Now installing Kalium ter the GPD is just spil effortless spil te a vanilla PC. Thesis are the steps you should go after:
The Pocket-Kali pic comes with only “top10", &, “wireless” set of Kalium devices to keep the size down. Just run “kali-linux-full” to get the entire shebang.
If you choose to install Kalium alongside with Windows Ten keep ter mind that it is possible that after the installation Windows option do not emerge ter the boot grub menukaart. The solution is spil effortless spil running “grub-update” from a root console and restarting the system.
After some testing of Kali-Pi current Version: Four.15.0-rc4-re4son i have managed to get Kalium up and running on the GPD pocket and everything works fine the fan, Wake/Sleep, WiFi/Bluetooth, zindelijk screen rotation, graphics everything the only problem I have is I can’t get audio working even spil evidently is supported by kernel but needs some playing around I can live without so I’m willing to sacrifice. ( UPDATE 2018/12/27: Sound is now working)
Recall that the mini GPD does not have an Ethernet port, but that something lightly solved with one USB-C gigabit ethernet adapters.
Thanks to its size and Kalium Linux the GPD becomes an all around device for the Pen-testing on the go. Duo it with some outer devices such spil high power wifi/bluetooth or SDR radio receiver to turn it into the ultimate portable wardriving machine.
