    Do not use UNetBootIn to write ISO files to flashdrives. UNetBootIn modifies the bootloader configuration, which is bad. You can use this instead (where /dev/sdX is your flashdrive and file.iso is a BlackArch ISO):

    # Example Image writing

    $ sudo dd bs=512M if=file.iso of=/dev/sdX

    Default Login
    The default login for all ISOs is: root:blackarch

Installing on top of ArchLinux
  • BlackArch Linux is compatible with existing/normal Arch installations. It acts as an unofficial user repository. Below you will find instructions on how to install BlackArch in this manner.

    # Run https://blackarch.org/strap.sh as root and follow the instructions.

    $ curl -O https://blackarch.org/strap.sh# The SHA1 sum should match: 34b1a3698a4c971807fb1fe41463b9d25e1a4a09

    $ sha1sum strap.sh# Set execute bit

    $ chmod +x strap.sh# Run strap.sh

    $ sudo ./strap.sh

    You may now install tools from the blackarch repository.

    # To list all of the available tools, run

    $ sudo pacman -Sgg | grep blackarch | cut -d’ ‘ -f2 | sort -u# To install all of the tools, run

    $ sudo pacman -S blackarch# To install a category of tools, run

    $ sudo pacman -S blackarch-<category># To see the blackarch categories, run

    $ sudo pacman -Sg | grep blackarch

    As part of an alternative method of installation, you can build the blackarch packages from source. You can find the PKGBUILDs on github. To build the entire repo, you can use the blackman tool.

    # First, you must install blackman. If the BlackArch package repository is setup on your machine,
    # you can install blackman like:

    $ sudo pacman -S blackman# Download, compile and install package:

    $ sudo blackman -i <package># Download, compile and install whole category

    $ sudo blackman -g <group># Download, compile and install all BlackArch tools

    $ sudo blackman -a# To list blackarch categories

    $ blackman -l# To list category tools

    $ blackman -p <category>

    The complete tool list of the BlackArch Linux repository can be found here.
