It seems you don’t have the openssl development library.

Try sudo apt-get update && sudo apt get install libssl-dev

You may then need to try installing Linux headers sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Thanks :slight_smile: and by the way when i tried to install the headers i got Couldn’t find any package by glob and regex "linus-headers-4.3.0-kali1-686-pae also when i try to install the libssl-dev i got Unable to locate package libssl-dev !

watched many tutorials still nothing ! also before that i learned some basic things before to start with kali and to be honest i’m really motivated to learn it :slight_smile:

Double check you’ve spelt linux-headers right.

Try sudo apt-get install openssl-dev

I do that sir! Reading package lists …Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information … Done
E: Unable to locate package openssl-dev

Ugh thats strange. Join us at our IRC channel.

Either ##0x00sec or try this link




32 or 64 bit OS?
Will try and get you fixed over here to help future masses.

32 Sir ! tried many other things but still nothing ( i got error while trying to install 64 thats why i changed to 32)




Have you tried:

  • Synaptic Package Manager?


  • sudo apt-get install libssl-dev?

For 64 bit OS and 32 bit packages in the future this may help.:

  • dpkg --add-architecture i386
    apt-get update
    apt-get install libssl-dev:i386

You can always do a build-dep but is no undoing it in one command afterwards
