This writeup goes over details on how to build and install a Kali Linux image for an Overo Gumstix board. The build notes and images in this post are for a stock Kali Linux OS configured for a Gumstix Overo device. The Kali image is configured for easy SSH network access over wired, wireless or USB when the Gumstix device is powered.
In order to create as Kali Linux device that resembled a USB dongle, I chose to use a Gumstix Overo Firestorm-P com with a Thumbo daughter board. The device is WiFi enabled and runs most pentest tools relatively well. As Gumstix devices are low resource ARM devices, there are obviously some CPU limitations, but considering the hardware, it runs great.!doctype>
