Pi-hole installation process on Kali linux interrupted

Hello guys,
Thank you for such a great helping tool. once i discovered its benefits i took the step and began installing Kali linux system on vmware.

Right after finishing the installation i configured a static ip address for the system in: /etc/network/interface file

and executed the pi-hole installation command:
curl -L https://install.pi-hole.net | bash

but the installation process interrupted showing this error:
:::warning: Unable to locate configuration file to set static IPv4 address !

Can anybody points me to the right direction if i have to do further steps just before beginning the installation.

Thanks for your support guys :slight_smile:

Going to bump this.

I have the same issue, and searching everywhere gets nothing. Google searching the error actually only pulls this post and the GitHub listing of the code where this error resides.

Has anyone else seen this?

Since we don't officially support the Kali Linux distribution, you may find some better guidance with their support forum and finding out how they set their static IP addresses. We use dhcpcd5, which is what Raspbian ships with, they may not use that same package.

Thanks for the reply! I'm actually using Debian on phpVirtualBox. I've run this setup before and haven't had issues, but this time it's giving me a real headache.

Hey @zuke...

curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | sudo PIHOLE_SKIP_OS_CHECK=true bash

this command will work and make the install successful.
