64 bit
Craigston:

Is your system a 64-bit system? Have you enabled 32-bit installs?
If you haven't, try running
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
.
Then update your sources using
sudo apt-get update
and retry the installation.

For the sake of doing crazy things! Can you imagine this? Running VirtualBox in a Virtual Machine. I could not take it further (by installing another VM in VBox running inside a VM) because of hardware constraints. smiley
Please bro, how can I install Kali Linux os on virtualbox? Tanx

You can do it just as you install any other Linux distro in VirtualBox. My version of Virtualbox doesn't have Kali Linux as an option so I choose Debian Linux as the distro option. It works.

Uh, have you downloaded the Kali Linux ISO file? Download it to a folder and also install virtualbox.
Start Virtualbox and add a new Virtual machine of type Linux and choose the Debian/GNU Linux distribution. Select 64-bit if your ISO file is a 64-bit ISO.
Customize the properties of the Virtual machine (memory, CPU, etc) and setup other options as you need.
Then start the virtual machine and point it to the downloaded ISO file.
The entire process is easy with the guided mode. Just follow the steps in virtualbox and accept default options where you are not sure. Youtube may be of help if you need some guidance.

Will it work in vmware? I have VMware Workstation Pro 12.5

Go to the download page (www.kali.org/downloads).
But why Kali? Kali is specifically designed for penetration testing so it's not recommended for regular use. Do you intend to use it as a regular distro?
Here's a link to the 64-bit full ISO image:
cdimage.kali.org/kali-2016.2/kali-linux-2016.2-amd64.iso

Then get the 32 bit version, or just go ubuntu or one of its variants (kubuntu or xubuntu or lubuntu). I would recommend getting linux mint (32-bit) instead. That way you have mp3 support out of the box
