im not able ton install the nvidia driver for my 9800 Gtx !

what i did is :

download the .run

/etc/init.d/gdm3 stop

sh nvidia ....

then it say that i dont have the linux headers for the install ...

i did install the linux headers ...

still the same !

any solution ?

what version of the driver are you trying to install?

I had the same issue with my GeForce 660M
I just used
apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
this corrected the problem.

For me this worked:


apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-glx-ia32 nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig
nvidia-xconfig
reboot

Where nvidia-glx-ia32 is 32bit libraries

Hi, I've been able to install the nvidia and cuda drivers on Backtack 5R3 but cannot get them to install in Kali Linux. can anyone point me in the right direction. Thanks

I used this guide to install the nvidia 310.40 drivers using nvidia .run

thank you that is gret news !

One of the user on the bt-fr just installed in dual boot an report that the resolution is perfect !!

Again ... thank's Kali Linux team for a so great Os !

PS : Proud user since Back | Track 4 !
by the way ... oclhashcat+ is now ok !

Thanks mate. It works like a charm simple by following the steps described here, http://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers.

Nvidia Control panel shows up nice and easy by typing nvidia-settings. Despite the fact that I can't find it under menu I'm fine with accessing it from the console though.

Nvidia-settings option just ain't included into any application categories. Maybe is a bug or something but as I said as far it works from cli then it doesn't matter for me so much. :rolleyes:

hello, i try to install nvidia drivers but it fails. i did apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` then i tried to install driver from nvidia bin. any help please? here is the nvidia install log.

Hi All,

I can't be more happy than I'm now! And I thanks God and you guys for this.
I have a Dell XPS 15 L502X with a embedded nVidia GT 540M and I was struggling to get it to work. With Backtrack 5, I was done! Impossible. But now with Kali, I could make it to work thanks to you guys tips. This is what I've done:

OS: Kali Linux 64

1 - Used this (http://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers) steps to install nVidia driver with DKMS as I couldn't make it to work as the message "No headers found" was appearing and even installing the headers, it wasn't working. And to install the :i386 headers, it would uninstall MANY stuff so I proceeded with the DKMS part.
2 - Skipped the part to configure nVidia with XORG as it just won't work as the primary driver is the Intel and since I didn't want GNOME to start with nVidia (which would be impossible), I've skipped the XORG part to let Intel deals with that so I wouldn't have problems starting the graphic interface. In noob terms: I haven't touch the XORG config files.
3 - Then I used this (http://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee) steps to install the Bumblebee from the Suwako repository to make things WAAY easier, after reboot, my "optirun glxgears -info" worked like a charm and showed my nVidia card working!

Again, thank you all. Kali Linux rocks!

PS: after rebooting the machine , the screen goes into very low pixels, everything will show large ! just type : nvidia-xconfig .
Then type : nano /etc/grub.d/00_header
scroll down till you see : gfxmode=${GRUB_GFXMODE}
Add this code underneath it : set gfxpayload=keep
Ctrl+o & Ctrl+x to confirm and save.
In terminal type : update-grub

That's it , everything worked wonders for me this way . Hope it does for you.

hi :)
for oclhashcat-plus no need to reinstall!!! && if you want to use CudaHashcat-plus
worked on directory:
/usr/share/oclhashcat-plus: ./CudaHashcat-plus.bin -m 2500 ...........ecc (for example)

best guess without more input

apt-get install nvidia-libopencl1

check ldd see whats required by oclHashcat-plus.bin and whats missing

ldd /usr/share/oclhashcat-plus/oclHashcat-plus.bin

Hey guys!

I just wanted to confirm that I managed to install the non-free Nvidia binary driver using the DKMS method with the addition of installing the nvidia-xconfig util as well which wrote a new xorg.conf. So far I've experienced no problem, on the contrary! The Nouveau driver did more harm than good. It was very very unstable (3-4 crashes a day) which is unacceptable on a professional pentest system used on a daily basis. Lots of logs, hours of scans and such lost. The Nouveau driver also caused some other odd problems. I could'nt start graphical Java based tools like Burp Suite Pro, NeXpose GUI installed etc. Basically anything using AWT/Swing. This was due to that Java was not able to find the default display. All resolved using the non-free Nvidia driver.

Thanks for a great new distro. Its way more snappy than BT and rocks on the Raspberry Pi, which is also used on a daily basis as my personal pentest assistant ;)

Cheers!

Hi Guys!

I don't get things to work here. Actually I'm afraid to screw up if something goes wrong. But lets put that on the shelf for now.

I first of all want to know if it's safe to install drivers straight from Nvidia?

I searched for my graphics card: Geforce GT 630M Linux drivers, on Nvidia.com (http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-amd64-295.33-driver)
It found a driver that supports my card (295.33 Certified) but in the information they clearly stated that certain dislltros may already have better suited drivers.

The installationwas as follows:

"Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.33.run

One of the last installation steps will offer to update your X configuration file. Either accept that offer, edit your X configuration file manually so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used, or run nvidia-xconfig"

So my question is could this work? Because many of you have come accross different results doing bacially the same installations?

Thanks
Jake

Noob here with a GTX 680. I finally figured out how to install the nvidia driver without it complaining about nouveau, kernel-headers, nvidia config files, or getting that nasty black screen of death upon reboot.

Here is how I did it:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms
apt-get install nvidia-xconfig
nvidia-xconfig
reboot

Please note: I did this from a fresh install of Kali 1.01 (if you are having apt-get errors of it not finding repositories, reinstall with network mirroring enabled).

I really hope this helped someone, because I wish I had this information available when I first started. Good luck and enjoy those dual monitors (& pyrit/cuda ;) )

Problem: Black screen after installation of nvidia drivers while invoking gdm3.
System: Samsung NP-QX410 (Intel / Nvidia)
OS: kali-linux-1.0.2-amd64 and kali-linux-1.0.2-i386

Methods tried:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.17.run (Install went well, but screen failed to load. So i cleaned up) AND also tried apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms
Neither worked out for me.

~# uname -v


#1 SMP Debian 3.7.2-0+kali6



Followed these steps. No luck:

Followed this guide. No luck. :

DONE i follow step by step from here
http://double-dragon.blogspot.com/2013/04/install-nvidia-driver-for-kali-linux.html

UPDATE. 1
Switched to X86. Gave it a shot. Still No luck. Same errors. No screen found.

I'm stuck in fallback. :(
Re-installing a clean kali (kali-linux-1.0.2-amd64)

UPDATE 2
This worked for me:
A little different than I expected but this will do. :

Please note: I did this from a fresh install of Kali 1.01 (if you are having apt-get errors of it not finding repositories, reinstall with network mirroring enabled).


you can also avoid a reinstall by enabling network mirroring manually. just add these two lines to /etc/apt/sources.list


deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib

then run apt-get update again.

Noob here with a GTX 680. I finally figured out how to install the nvidia driver without it complaining about nouveau, kernel-headers, nvidia config files, or getting that nasty black screen of death upon reboot.

Here is how I did it:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms
apt-get install nvidia-xconfig
nvidia-xconfig
reboot

Please note: I did this from a fresh install of Kali 1.01 (if you are having apt-get errors of it not finding repositories, reinstall with network mirroring enabled).

I really hope this helped someone, because I wish I had this information available when I first started. Good luck and enjoy those dual monitors (& pyrit/cuda ;) )

a fresh install of Kali 1.03 , accroding the doc , install nvidia go black and no respon, you work step is awesome!
