Kali Linux Rolling NVIDIA Problem
Hello Need Help! Urgent! its KILLING ME :-(
First of all I am a bit new to Linux systems.
I got an old laptop a 32bit system. and had the idea of installing Kali Linux Rolling to it.
I got it installed properly without any problems
Then the VGA quality was a bit slow ect compared to windows I had earlier
So I I wanted to install NVIDIA drivers for it.
I tried going through almost all types of forums ect ended up getting failed results which ended up keeping on installing and updating the system all over and over again please help me with this.
The main procedure I followed
I ended up getting Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system can’t recover please log out and try again. Tried rebooting again many times but didn’t help. It is displayed in the pictures I have attached.
and the Final Error is
I also tried to download the exact driver from Geforce.com
and followed there instruction. Also I had my nouveau driver blacklisted. Then after booting at login screen it started to flicker continuously.
Trust me I’ve tried all the methods available in forums but ended up with same result.
I have also tried this as well
also I have reported in kali-linux bug tracker. But still no response at all
One thing I noticed was after installing nvidia drivers and get the white screen error. The graphics were pretty smoother and responsive than before.
My specs are mentioned bellow.
PLEASE HELP ME! SUFFERING!
Intel® Core™ Duo Processor T2500 2.00GHz
2 GB DDR2 533 MHz
Intel® PRO/Wireless 802.11 a/b/g integrated WLAN
15.4" colour WXGA+ BrightView 1280 x 800
Altec Lansing® speakers
667 MHz Bus speed
NVIDIA GeForce® Go 7400 512MB
Having this issue with a similar card.
I have the same problem with the graphics. Similar card on a dell xps m1210. Any luck on getting it to work or any answers found anywhere?

With that said, to get the graphics to work I booted into recovery mode, then init 3'd to a CLI with networking, I updated everything with apt-get and the apt-get purged nvidia*. Once I did that I mounted a USB drive with the correct driver from nvidia and everything worked flawlessly. Perhaps give that a try. It appears the specific driver you need is:
Release Date: 2015.11.16
Operating System: Linux 64-bit
Language: English (US)

Hi, you see the oops because there is no xorg.conf file. The drivers as of late do not create one. Running nvidia-xconfig after the driver install will create one *but* this is not the end of your woes. If you're lucky you can get by. However, the latest kali rolling has major issues with the latest mobos and GeForce cards especially. The implementation of some bios'es has a bug, but not really their fault as the Intel spec is vague for implementers. Some linux distros like Ubuntu have resolved it, but minor ones like kali are lagging behind by about a year on this one. There are issues with the GPU Memory mapping and also the PCIe kernel code has bugs in it too.
So follow the guide as you did, and run nvidia-xconfig afterwards. If you reboot and get a flashing cursor with no gnome nor the ability to tty1-3 then you've hit the kernel issue. There is no fix for this as of yet, other than patching the kernel manually. I must admit I tried it and got working for all but 5 minutes, after that I consigned kali rolling to the bin. I needed to get up and running quickly so instead installed ubuntu and ran kali in a virtualbox. The virtualbox approach will not give you access to cuda, so push your password cracking to a desktop somewhere else...you'll want to do that anyway as it sucks battery and will top you out from full to empty in about an hour. Your specs suggest a laptop, so no doubt it is the same issue.
same problem heare.... .....
Installing nvidia drivers on Kali seems to be a forever bugging problem
from other post. i read this ..
I had a similar problem with Kali rolling 2016.2 with Nvidia GTX 1070. I could not boot into in using recovery options or regular boot. I got it to boot by using the Kali live failsafe mode on the DVD.
I then set up a chroot environment in a terminal sudo mount /dev/sdaX /mnt, sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev, sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc, sudo mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys, sudo chroot /mnt In the chroot environment, I ran apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) and ran NVIDIA-Linux-X86_64-367.35.run that I had previous placed in the root directory with chmod +x to change permissions. I agreed to the EULA, and the other questions. It installed the NVIDIA drivers. I exited out of chroot and quit the live DVD.
I was able to boot into Kali from the hard drive.
somebody has tried?

Reason: salto un dato
I am subscribing to this thread to follow the progress of this issue. I have tried all of the above methods to no avail. I am hoping that this issue will get solved soon and that a detailed response will be posted in this thread. If I figure anything out on my end I will post it here as well.
What specific graphics card do you have? As I stated previously you should be able to get the system to work if you install the correct driver with nvidia installer after removing the nvidia debian packages. That's how I got it to work as a temporary fix. Only problem is I was unable to get CUDA to work due to removing the debian package.
