    Error installing NVIDIA graphics card drivers on a Kali Linux

    My laptop with the following specifications:

    CPU: I7
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA GEFORCE 740M
    RAM: 6 GB

    I installed the latest version of Kali. (kali-linux-1.0.6-amd64.ISO)For handshake cracking want to use Hashcat.
    So for using GPU handle need to Install NVIDIA Drivers on Kali before ruining the Hashcat. I used this document that explains how to make use of NVIDIA video hardware and install the drivers on a Kali Linux.

    I followed documents step by step:

    1-sudo apt-get update

    root@kali:~# sudo apt-get update
    Get:1 kali/updates Release.gpg [836 B]
    Get:2 kali/updates Release [11.0 kB]
    Hit kali/updates/main amd64 Packages
    Get:3 kali/updates/contrib amd64 Packages [20 B]
    Get:4 kali/updates/non-free amd64 Packages [20 B]
    Ign kali/updates/contrib Translation-en_US
    Ign kali/updates/contrib Translation-en
    Ign kali/updates/main Translation-en_US

    My problem is here second part does not working.
