    Kali Roling 2016 Freeze after login as root

    Hi !

    I have one problem that i have not found the solution yet.. I have dell 7559 with Win10 on it and nVidia GTX960M. I have make roling kali bootable with usb, create non alocate space on my ssd. Instalaltion passed ok (instead of warning that wifi firmware is missing) and installed.

    I logged in and that was it. Kali Linux froze with a grey screen after I signed in with root and nothing happens and it doesn't work. Pointer was freezed, nothing worked.


    I have used Kali 2.0 Sana before without problems and worked great. With Rolling distribution only issues.. Also i tryed to use Live Version of Roling, and works without issuesm but when install on disk, start problems listed before. I can login to Kali only if ising Gnome on Wayland UI. All other freeze me laptop.

    My laptop specs:

    Cpu : Core i7 6700HQ Skylake
    Gpu: nVidia GTX960M4GB DDR5
    Ram: 16 Gb 1600 mhz
    Wifi : Some intel dual band AC card.

    Hi!
    I don't know if you still need a solution, I have succeeded in making my GUI work.
    It's not the best solutin, what's more I think everyone is going to say it is bad, but it worked for me, and I had the same problem as You.
    I logged in as root not in graphical mode but in console
    ctrl + alt + f1
    root
    your root password
    and type apt-get install nvidia-*
    it will download every nvidia package (2 GBs as I remember). After it is done restart and it will work.
    ( didn't try but befor this I created a non root user in the sudoers group and i logged in as this user)
    If you have a better solution, please share it.
    I hope it's helpful.

    Same problem here, and my only workaround was to boot with acpi off. I posted a thread about my issue, because with acpi off my touch pad does not work.
