Hi,

nxi -MSNGAmPrdC: Parrot_5_Beta__nxi -MSNGAmPrdC - Pastebin.com

1- When Using the shortcut: MOD4 + T → Open 2 terminals.
Using the shortcut: ALT + T → Open 1 terminal.

2- Try to install security but:

External command finished with errors.
Command /usr/sbin/bootloader-config finished with exit code 100.
Output:
Running bootloader-config…

I try run apt update and install and the same error

The same with home

How about beta ARM version? And what kind of devices can be installed?
Live mode: no anonsurf? Root password?

Same wrong message here. App: VMWare Fusion.

try to create the image first:

Hi, arm 5.0 beta images will be out as soon as possible, for now it is working for raspberry but we plan more devices in the future :slightly_smiling_face:

@kyb3rcipher is it based on Armbian?

dm ?? talk less? @sigma7


@snikers

We are currently relying on our repositories.

The new version of AnonSurf is not included for the moment. Root’s password is toor.

@danterolle That already classic password didn’t work.

Login with sudo su, change it via passwd.

I’m confused. I installed Parrot OS, when it was on 4.11.3 I think. Now when I use cat /etc/os-release I get the information that I use version 5.0 (LTS). How can it be that there is a beta test for version 5.0?

Beside that: Is there a changelog for the beta version? It would be interesting to see what has changed.

Sadly, I don’t have time now and until next month. But, I hope I can test the beta soon or the next round.
