we are almost ready to release, let’s start this topic!

(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #2

upgrading the debian installer right now

(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #3

netinstall images for parrot 3.11 with linux 4.14.13

x86 64bit -

x86 32bit -

(Spanish Team Leader) #4

really? Great, dude!!

(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #5

please test these images and tell me if they work as expected, test at least the 64bit edition

(Spanish Team Leader) #6

of course. Creating my USB right now.
But, really 40MB?

(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #7

it is just the installer, everything else will be downloaded from the internet

(Spanish Team Leader) #8

ok, I was thinking in size compared with Debian Netinst. Now I’ll test

(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #9

the new iso files are being compiled right now :slight_smile:

Would it be possible to install the package “Aptitude” by default on that new release ? Aptitude is more efficient than “apt” for about everything.

(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #12

aptitude used to be better but slower than apt-get and the legacy apt interface, but now the new apt interface is pretty clever and provides a very reliable and sandboxed experience, while aptitude is still the old slow alternative to apt-get

(Palinuro (test account)) #13

hello, this is my test account and i’m writing this message from Parrot home 3.11 amd64



I did not know about that, thanks for the info. And nice to see 3.11 is working fine. Is Bluetooth finally disabled by default like on your screenshot ?

(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #15

yes i suppose


how long until the new 3.11 64bit iso is uploaded ?


The netboot installer 64 bits gives a failed installation near 70%
“Unable to install busybox”

if i try again i get "the debootstrap program exited with an error (return value 1).

(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #18

the busybox error strictly depends on the mirror you choose, try to select a http mirror instead of a https one

p.s. and will automatically redirect to near https mirrors if possible, so don’t use them

New Icons are looking fantastic.


You’re right, selected another mirror, it works perfectly, bluetooth applet disabled by default, new tools, sleep applet is working, great. Thanks Parrot Team
