    As anyone figured out howto install NVIDIA drivers?

    The official documentation and my search on the subject did not yield results.

    I have a laptop with dual video cards, Intel HD4000 and GT 630M

    I am not entirely sure but my guide on Kali Linux 1.0.7 kernel 3.14 – Install proprietary NVIDIA driver – NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver seems to be working for most people. Some had issues where they update, upgrade and dist-upgrade and the driver didn't work. They ended up reinstalling Kali 1.0.7 and it all worked from that point.

    Another reader of my blog was also able to fix “ERROR: could not insert ‘nvidia_uvm’: Invalid argument” with Pyrit/CUDA/Cpyrit. BTW, I haven't found or seen anyone reliably use Intel/NVIDIA or Intel/AMD. At any point only one card works and in your case, NVIDIA will work and Intel will lay dormant.

    Let me know how it went or if you had any issues. Cheers,

    Bumblebee is working with 1.07 + nvidia 331 + cuda 5.5.

    The issue with nvidia-uvm is with the module building. You can manually build it and install it. After a modprobe it's good to go.

    If you can't get it to install I was going to type up a bit of a guide
