    Thank you staticn0de. Unfortunatelly before I read your message I tried to uninstall nvidia driver, everything looks ok at the first sight but unfortunatelly when i tried to install it again, i got an error like I have a nvidia driver installed and I don't know how to uninstall, here are some message which i got.
    lsmod | grep video

    And nvidia-installer.log content:
    License accepted.
    -> Installing NVIDIA driver version 340.65.
    -> The NVIDIA driver appears to have been installed previously using a different installer. To prevent potential conflicts, it is recommended either to update the existing installation using the same mechanism by which it was originally installed, or to uninstall the existing installation before installing this driver.
    Please review the message provided by the maintainer of this alternate installation method and decide how to proceed:
    Please use the Debian packages instead of the .run file.

    (Answer: Abort installation)
    ERROR: The installation was canceled due to the availability or presence of an alternate driver installation. Please see /var/log/nvidia-installer.log for more details.

    I used NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.65.run and when i tried to install i used the same method.

    To uninstall, just use the --uninstall flag on the installer you used.

    Make sure you clean up bumblebee and primus too. The command below should work but make sure you read about what you're doing first.

    apt-get purge bumblebee* primus* nvidia-*

    and start again
    chown -R us ./base

    Hi and many thanks for your help but I do again something wrong, this time looks like nvidia driver doesn't load. I uninstall everything and install and configure everything again till cuda. I took some messages after:

    nvidia.installer.log looks ok.
    No other chance than install again, or can I do something to get loaded nvidia ?

    Hi,

    New Kali Linux 1.1 is up. One of the festures is NVIDIA Optimus hardware support. Can You tell me if the installation proces is the same or some things changes with Kali 1.1 ?

    Dear all,
    New Kali 1.1 is up. One of the features is Nvidia Optimus hardware support. Please can You tell me if the installation is the same or it's different from instruction couple pages back ?

    Do You have any expirience in performance boost on Kali 1.1 ?

    Battery Consumption

    Hi,

    With your laptop on, and not plugged in, and not being used for 1 or 2 mins, can you perform the following?
    Code:
    upower -d
    Please post the results. I've been dealing with nvidia and optimus and cuda since 2011, and some of the steps you did seem a bit unnecessary.

    Thanks

    Hey guys! Exciting news about nvidia optimus in 1.1.

    Bad news is, I've just moved house and won't have internet for up to 20 days. I can't test it!

    If someone else can have a go, be sure to post back
    chown -R us ./base

    I'm using VMware® Workstation v7.0.1 build-227600, I've installed it on my Win8.1 x64
    I've installed Kali Linux 9.10 on VMware

    Whenever I've posted lspci | grep VGA in Linux Terminal the following info has showed :
    00:0f.0 VGA compatible controller: VMware SVGA II Adapter
    Is it possible to install Video Card Driver in Linux this situation ?
    i havet instal linux from vmware with tools bat a cannt see nvidia hardwer

    BTW, My video card is NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M

    I FOLOW INSTRUCTION BAT I CANT INSTAL GRAFIC DRIVER

    First of all, I would like to thank staticn0de for starting this thread. Optimus users should stick with this thread. Also thanks to Quest for his solutions that kept this thread up-to-date.

    Users, I see a lot of posts regarding failed installation and errors. Let me clarify few things
    1. Mix-matching NVIDIA repo driver and NVIDIA site driver will BREAK your GUI and in most cases you will end up reinstalling.
    2. I've added a new guide for Kali Linux 1.1.0 kernel 3.18. This guide also works fine on a new installation. Again do not mix match 2 sets of drivers.
    3. If GPU processing is what you're after, perhaps Debian/Kali is not the best distro (incoming flame! )
    4. Both guides will work flawlessly in new installation where users didn't muck around with Display drivers. Choose one and stick with it.


    Btw, staticn0de why VirtualGL?
    I thought it only helps to run OpenGL applications with full 3D hardware acceleration remotely! So if I am only after GPU processing, I don't need it. If I want to run an application with 3D acceleration movie at work (hmm, I shouldn't) over vnc from my home PC, then I go install it? Right?

    This whole installation is about 3Gb. So at 1,3Mb, If one will go trough the circus of installing the whole shlabang, then I think the answer is 'so that everything will work if ever called upon from an application'?

    Hi blackMORE and thanks for the updated guide over at http://www.blackmoreops.com

    Maybe you can give me an answer to my question?

    The new release runs a 3.18 kernel, patched for wireless injection attacks.
    Our ISO build systems are now running off live-build 4.x.
    Improved wireless driver support, due to both kernel and firmware upgrades.
    NVIDIA Optimus hardware support.
    Updated virtualbox-tool, openvm-tools and vmware-tools packages and instructions.
    A whole bunch of fixes and updates from our bug-tracker changelog.
    And most importantly, we changed grub screens and wallpapers!
    What does the above mean exactly? This installation worked with previous version of Kali, and now we still have to install everything, so what is different with 1.1.0?

    Cheers!

    Hi blackmore,

    I wrote it a while ago, but if I remember right (without Kali in front of me) I included it as it installed glxspheres64 for testing the driver.

    IMPORTANT

    must add some repos in, File System/etc/apt/sources.list (Thanks blackMORE).
    Code:
    ## Regular repositories
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    ## Source repositories
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    Then..
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade
    before Installing the Linux headers, or it won't work. Returns
    root@kali:~# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package linux-headers-3.18.0-kali1-amd64
    E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-headers-3.18.0-kali1-amd64'
    I'm installing now and will edit this post if something else comes up.


    EDIT: The following lines will have to be modified if using CUDA 6.5 from this howto..

    For the path, we will add a little more to what we defined for VirtualGL earlier. It should look like this in your bashrc file
    nano ~/.bashrc
    export PATH=$PATH:/opt/VirtualGL/bin:/usr/local/cuda-6.5/bin
    Run the following so we don't have to log out
    export PATH=$PATH:/opt/VirtualGL/bin:/usr/local/cuda-6.5/bin
    Edit the following file so the contents match those shown below
    nano /etc/ld.so.conf
    Contents:
    include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf
    add /usr/local/cuda-6.5/lib64
    Save and close
    Run
    ldconfig
    Build the nVidia samples
    cd /root/NVIDIA_CUDA-6.5_Samples
    make


    Everything worked well as before, with all the latest versions, CUDA 6.5.14, VirtualGL 2.4, nVidia 346.35, CudaHashcat 1.31.

    ..will post the links later. Thanks guys!!

    Hello everyone, I'm having trouble getting my nvidia drivers to work. I have a laptop with 2 gt 750m graphics card with SLI. In addition i'm running the latest kali linux 1.1.0 kernel 3.18. I have tried the post by blackMORE but ended with gdm3 not working after setting up the xorg.conf file. So I decided to follow this guide but I encountered an error. The error comes up while trying to install the official nvidia drivers. When I run the installer it gives me an error "unable to load kernel module" this is the full log.

    I tried to install with and without the lines that Quest suggested but the same thing shows up. Any ideas?

    Also when I run " lspci | egrep 'VGA|3D' " I don't think it detects my second graphics card as it only displays two. Here is what I get

    root@kali:~# lspci | egrep 'VGA|3D'

    07:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0fe4 (rev a1)

    I'm not sure what's wrong.

    Most of us don't have SLI, so that is a problem, but https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/board/98/linux/ that board might be useful.

    Let me just understand something with your first post..
    I have tried the post by blackMORE but ended with gdm3 not working after setting up the xorg.conf file. So I decided to follow this guide but I encountered an error. The error comes up while trying to install the official nvidia drivers. When I run the installer it gives me an error "unable to load kernel module"
    Are you saying that you could install your nVidia drivers with blackMORE tut? If so, did you do a fresh Kali install before following this guide? Just making sure here.

    I'm using VMware® Workstation v7.0.1 build-227600, I've installed it on my Win8.1 x64
    I've installed Kali Linux 9.10 on VMware

    Whenever I've posted lspci | grep VGA in Linux Terminal the following info has showed :
    00:0f.0 VGA compatible controller: VMware SVGA II Adapter
    Is it possible to install Video Card Driver in Linux this situation ?

    Once again thanks for the help Quest. Now regarding the SLI configuration, I don't think that's what's causing the problem as the second graphics card is removable and not soldered into the main board as the primary is. As to your question I did make a fresh installation of Kali before trying this guide. I have actually reinstalled Kali multiple times to try this method (and others) several times without luck. I usually end up with gdm3 not working or the driver not installing. In addition, I have also followed the tutorial using the two graphics cards listed - separately and together. I'm not sure as to what is causing the problem.

    Hey guys,

    This built in support for Nvidia + Optimus looks repo based.

    I've noticed that you do not need to add the debian wheezy repo anymore in order to install bumbelbee and primus. The latest versions are already within the kali repo.

    This guide and all graphics card related processing will not work under any circumstance with vmware, virtual box or any other virtualisation based set up.

    Install bare metal if you want it to work, try dual boot.

    Hey quest,

    Yeah mate, this thread is a mess. I'll start a rewrite tonight and try to get it done soon.

    Edit: people can't use gdm3? I didn't notice it was broken.

    That is a good idea, but the problem is that I can't install the NVIDIA drivers at all. The first error I get occurs after I run:

    ./NVIDIA*.run --dkms -z

    So the NVIDIA driver never gets properly installed. Maybe if I use blackMORE's tutorial and then the fix you provided, there might be a possibility, but the fix is specific for this tutorial. I guess I have to keep looking.

    Hey Guys, I have followed the tutorial but am still having a problem getting things to work with my GeForce GT 650M. After following the directions and rebooting after step 14 I lost my GUI. I still had access to the console via Alt+F1 so I continued to finish via console through step 21. I can't seem to restore my GUI and step 21 comes back with errors.

    It doesn't look like the logs are going to fit so I threw it in PastBin: http://pastebin.com/6g8Hiy8k

    Doesn't work anymore. Driver won't install. It was working earlier this week. I did a bunch of benchmark under 1.1.0. Weird.

    I guess will have to wait until nVidia makes another driver that supports kernel 3.18, or for Static to pull another rabbit out to save us all, again.

    For those who have it working don't do any updates.
    2015. Welcome to the Flintstones.



    @Static, found a typo in post #1 step 7 (not that it matters at this point).
    Code:
    root@kali:~# nano ~./bashrc
    root@kali:~# nano ~/.bashrc


    - Missing a step between 12 and 13?

    From the first version...
    Restart bumblebee with the following and ignore any ERROR/FAIL warnings
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/bumblebeed restart

    Hey Quest,

    Thanks for picking up those typos. I've gone and fixed them now.

    Edit: Also, I just saw that hashcat 1.33 is out now. I'll make a new deb today and upload it for anyone interested. It's a shame it has not been put in the repo yet. That, and the repo has 1.31 for oclhashcat (amd).

    I'm doing some experimenting to get the Intel 3D acceleration to work after this install, and no luck so far.

    The nVidia driver and the glx-alternative-mesa_0.5.1 cannot coexist. One wants to uninstall the other. Ah well

    Great!

    There's a bug in 1.33 http://hashcat.net/forum/thread-4085-page-2.html but it only affect PDF password cracking.

    Hey mate,

    No. That is not needed.

    I had no problems at all installing anything using the steps of the first page. I even installed the headers you had to leave out.

    I'm curious, the latest version of the driver prompts users to run NVIDIA-XCONFIG. Did you happen to run it? or others who had a black screen may have. That command kills bumblebee.

    Ahh. That's a pain. I've already packed it and started an upload.

    I'll start again lol. I'll build the fix into the deb.

    Cool thank you

    That 1.33 seems to be a great version. Alot of work was done.

    This version 1.33 is the finalized version of what v1.32 should have been.

    There's not much to see from the changelog but there was a ton of changes in the inner working which make this release is really a good one.
    http://hashcat.net/forum/thread-4085.html


    I'm curious, the latest version of the driver prompts users to run NVIDIA-XCONFIG. Did you happen to run it? or others who had a black screen may have. That command kills bumblebee.
    **** no, I did that only once by mistake and yup, black screen.

    I did try to install numerous time yesterday with the headers, it was not working, when it was working before. I tell ya this is weird.

    And had similar issues earlier this week where the header would not install. Had to add some repos for it to work. I will reinstall everything(for the 15th time) again with your new cudaHashcat .deb, and I will remove those repos just to see.

    Btw it was not the updates that was causing my problems(like I thought before) but only the header.

    I had a look at a couple of repos last night. Out of the 10 I looked at, only two were current (this is for the kali-security repo).

    That could cause some serious problems if your geo-location is connecting you to an out-of-date repo. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    yes that would explain some of my paranormal experience.

    ## Regular repositories
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    ## Source repositories
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    I didn't have a choice as the headers would not install without those. But now that's probly my problem. Go figure.

    and your .deb is superior to the source itself as it is contains the patch. I just find the whole thing quite bizarre. Not your service to the community, but the saga.

    Will install everything later, minus the added repos to see if it 1. accepts the headers and 2. if the nVidia driver install with the headers. I could not do both since 1.1.0 came out.

    I will also attempt to install everything off-line. If it works I will post all DL links.

    Cheers Static!

    Well,

    Thanks.... unique? Unless my math is a bit off

    I'll have a go when I finally get my pi 2 image to compile and see what I get.

    so needless to say that I reverted back to 1.31


    ... in other X-files news ...

    - I still have to populate my sources.list file with official repos, to install the headers, or I get this
    root@kali:~# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package linux-headers-3.18.0-kali1-amd64
    E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-headers-3.18.0-kali1-amd64'
    - but when installed, the NVIDIA driver stops halfway with the message "unable to load kernel modules".

    ... the good news...

    I will edit post#4 https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...ll=1#post35270 with a mini howtoo do a OFF-Line installation with all links to the packages.

    Good call on reverting. I still haven't tested it.

    I suffer huge losses in speed with the newer CUDA myself, not so much anything else.

    You must have an out of date repo. The headers install fine for me, without them it is no surprise that your modules won't build.

    Go over to the Kali Linux mirror list and manually point at one which had the headers in it. I went looking and found one (I have my own local repo I use) so I often search for the up to date ones to mirror.

    I installed Kali with no Internet connection, so that is why I have to populate the sources.list with official repos. So I don't know what's up with that. I will try some other stuff eventually. Now I'm just sick of reinstalling(though I don't need the guide anymore lolll).

    post #4 https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...ll=1#post35270 edited with download links. Still will have to test all of it whenever I get sorted out, as I could only test parts of it at a time.

    I'm having the "Unable to load kernel module" error when (trying numerous times) to install my Geforce GT 640M drivers on my laptop.

    Attempting to install the driver version 346.47 on kernel 3.18.0, Kali 1.1.0.

    I have followed every guide, to the word and freshly installed way to many times to retain 100% of my sanity. Should I wait for a new driver to be produced, or try something else?
