    Well, what error do you get ? Sorry but may be I am not seeing something you are trying to explain. Why are you installing compat drivers for which card chipset/make/model ?

    If you give more detailed information it would be helpful.

    Cheers!

    Just a quick question, did you make sure your sources.list is complete and have you ran apt-get update, apt-get upgrade to see if that fixes the issue?

    In reference to the above poster:


    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free


    make sure the above is in /etc/apt/sources.list as indicated http://raghunath24.blogspot.com/2013...ositories.html.

    This helped me correct an issue I encountered during installation (during the network mirror configuration). It also helped with a number of other issues I was having (VMWare tools installation etc..)
