    (Guide) Installing Fglrx + OpenCL + Pryit for AMD Video cards

    Hi all,

    I've seen a few posts now with people having issues getting their AMD card to work on 1.0.9. I've made a short guide on how to install Fglrx and all the other good stuff to run pyrit and oclhashcat under OpenCL.

    Edit: I've also now written a post on how to use cal++ and the latest AMD (14.4.2) driver on Kali 1.0.9. Cal++ has shown itself to be much faster than OpenCL. It's harder to install but I've made some easy to follow step by steps. Use the guide for cal++ or alternatively continue with what's below if you want an easy performance boost with OpenCL. However, it's not as large as cal++.

    This is the non-free AMD Catalyst driver. The following cards / series are supported by the (at time of writing) latest 14.4.2 driver in the Kali repo.

    AMD Radeon R9 Series, AMD Radeon R7 Series, AMD Radeon HD 8000, AMD Radeon HD 7000, AMD Radeon HD 6000, and AMD Radeon HD 5000

    For reference, I've written this on an older i2600k running an AMD Radeon HD 6970 which has Kali 1.0.9 installed.

    1. Install and update Kali 1.0.9
    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade
    2. Install kali headers
    apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    3. Install the driver
    apt-get install fglrx-driver fglrx-atieventsd fglrx-control
    4. Build the xorg config file
    aticonfig --initial
    5. Reboot
    shutdown -r now
    6. fglrx will now be in the loaded modules
    7. Install a bunch of things we will need for later
     apt-get install libpcap-dev python-dev libssl-dev
    8. Download and start building pyrit
    cd ~
    svn checkout pyrit_svn
    cd pyrit_svn/pyrit/
    python build
    python install
    cd ../cpyrit_opencl
    9. Install the OpenCL stuff we need
    apt-get install amd-opencl-icd amd-opencl-dev
    10. Build the OpenCL stuff for pyrit
    python build
    python install
    11. Test pyrit and you should see your OpenCL device
    pyrit list_cores
    12. Benchmark it
    pyrit benchmark
    That's it. It's really that simple to use AMD cards with OpenCL.
