WeakNet LINUX 8 CAFFEINE (x64)

Today I can finally release the latest WeakNet LINUX Debian release, Caffeine x64, confidently after spending a lot of time testing and retesting the ISO, my updater tools, and even my own installer and app launcher. Please make sure to run the ISO in a virtual environment (Download VMWare Player from my site) or from a USB drive (install using Rufus). I do have VMWare tools installed for changing the resolution, sharing clipboards, and mounting shared drives. I cannot stress this enough as I cannot commit time to hardware/UEFI/BIOS Debian/hardware issues for every kind of machine. The ISO is made using my own custom Debian ISO creation process which I use the hybrid ISO options for booting for UEFI and for USB using the ISO itself.

Also, there is already a new update for the ISO in place and ready. My update scripts are now located and versioned at GitHUB. The updater script will pull down the latest source before running each time and run from /usr/share/wnl. You will need to keep the terminal window open during the duration of the updates as some questions/ input will be asked by services such as postgresql for the Armitage installer.



To download a copy to give it a test-run, hit up my new WeakNet LINUX page here.

If you come across any impassable / functional issues, or if you require any special hardware's firmware added into the live ISO, please send me an email!

Thank you! ~Douglas

  1. Douglas. How I can install firmware hardware drivers. WeakNet Terminal, is Bash Debian, or Bash Ubuntu. :)

    1. I am not sure what you are asking. The terminal is using Bash but the emulator is gnome-terminal. To install firmware you will need the device type and to search Google or the package manager repository for it.

  2. When i try using the updater, it does finish the download, but then it gets stuck on the installation phase, and removes everything from the right-click menu except "Information security". Any idea what's going on?

    1. Hello, it sounds like you most likely ran out of space on your VM or your internet connection wasn't working. I don't have logging enabled in these updates because of how easy the scripts are - sequential lines of commands that pull stuff down and map it to your drive. I would recommend booting back into the VM and checking the dmesg output - maybe do "df -h" to see how much room you have on the / partition. If you are using the live environment, make sure that the aufs has at least 4GB (RAM) and if you are installing to a USB or VM disk make sure there is at least 30GB of storage space. some of these tools and packages are very large. I'll update the page with some system requirements and try to make a tutorial video on the installation and setup process as soon as I can. Thanks.

  3. That's probably why. I never set up the partition, because i can't figure out how in this new version. My VM storage is set to 40 GB, And my RAM is set to 4 GB, so there's no problem there. But a tutorial video for setting everything up would be very useful.

  4. Hello, as soon as the installation process finishes, I reboot but I get a "grub-rescue>" terminal with the error "file /boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod" not found. Any ideas?

    1. Are you following the installation tutorial as I have made it? Have you made your VM the correct size? Sounds like you are out of space.
