I'm in the process of converting a stock Debian installation into a Kali by adding the relevant apt repos and installing the relevant packages. While that goes, I figured I'd open up a general discussion of Kali Linux (and its predecessor, BackTrack). Post your favorite packages, tools, tips/tricks etc.
Keep it kosher please, I don't want to hear about what you did behind 7 proxies back in the day.

Why are you not installing kali, sandeep?
pls don't keep it kosher
i wanna know the power of Kali
Because it's a bitch to take an existing machine and reinstall the OS, and doubly unnecessary when ~80% of the packages are the same?
It's not my daily machine, it's a VM I've used for security work for quite a while. I'm just now making it a proper Kali.
>just reinstall the OS
>just recompile the kernel
You know, it's shit like this that makes neckbeards insufferable at times.
Just so you know, kali uses a custom kernel with tweaks to make ends everything run just right and play well together. So you will need to recompile the kernel to get the same thing as kali
I generally consider it a bad idea to shit where I eat. On the road is a different story. It's especially fun to sniff packets from open wi-fi networks and freak out the owners with it.
I think a lot of those changes have to do with firmware, and since the VM doesn't have direct access to the hardware anyway, that should be a non-issue.
