2. Install and boot.
3. Run the following commands:

4. Observe Failure
Burpsuite starts and accepts connections
Burpsuite's splash screen appears and shows indefinitely, with one CPU core constantly maxed out and no command line output.
Thanks for your message.
We’ve just updated Kali and ran Burp Suite using this command:
- java -jar /usr/bin/burpsuite
Burp Suite started and ran as expected. Have you tried launching Burp without adding -Xmx1024m?
We’ve tested the latest versions of Kali and Burp Suite and had no issues.
We haven’t tested Burp Suite on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, however, if the machine has the appropriate computational power then there shouldn’t be an issue.
Which version of Java are you using?
