    Question [Solved]impossible to install video drivers nvidia and cuda in Kali pae i686 1.0.6

    Hello everyone,
    two days that I try to install the nvidia video driver but the installation fails, tells me that it is impossible to configure dkms I also tried with the cuda package and it says it can not find the kernel even if I try to define the directory manually can someone help me solve this problem??
    I state that the system has just been installed, I followed the standard procedure of installation I tried three different video driver getting the same error, I disabled nouveau, I installed the linux-headers-3.12-trunk-686-pae

    This worked for me. I don't remember where I found this or I would link it.

    aptitude install nvidia-xconfig
    nvidia-xconfig
    aptitude -r install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    aptitude install nvidia-kernel-dkms
    aptitude install nvidia-xconfig
    nvidia-xconfig

    Thanks! This worked for me.
    Though I don't understand why the install nvidia-xconfig was done twice.
