After I edited reTerminal.sh to instead have kalipi-kernel and kalipi-kernel-headers
I re-ran the script. Mostly went ok until the very end?

You can use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located.

Please try to compile with the option --compat-kernel

I don’t know what to do at this point. Plz help.

PLEASE keep in mind that I am a COMPLETE NOOB and getting past the first error was sheer luck (and perhaps the cause of the second error)

Bump

Any suggestions? Any luck installing Kali on the reTerminal?

We have not made a similar attempt. From the error message displayed, it appears that some packages are not found, this could be a network issue or it could be that the installation method you are following is out of date.

The installation method is directly from the getting started wiki

Thank you for your feedback, I will take the time to test it out today.

any news? I would really like to get Kali going!

It may not be so fast, it will take some time for this problem to be solved, please wait.
