    Exclamation Kali Linux 2016.1 - Power Management daemon hanging system

    Hi All,

    I did a clean install yesterday (8-June-16) of Kali Linux 2016.1 64-bits using latest available ISO.

    System details
    • Asus P67 Saberthooth, I7-2600, 8Gb RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950, 4 SSD (Samsung 2 x 850 PRO, 840 PRO, 850 EVO)

    Installation details
    • Installed on a dedicated SSD (/dev/sdd)
    • Dual-boot with already installed Windows 7 64-bits on separated SSD (/dev/sda)
    • GRUB configured and working

    After installation actions (as "root")
    • Apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, apt-get dist-upgrade. REBOOT
    • Installation of latest proprietary NVIDIA driver (361.45.11 Linux 64-bits). REBOOT

    Once all above steps successfully completed, when logging-in as "root", after a random period of time, all of a sudden, screen gets black with only 2 line:
    • Message looking like a check disk status for /dev/sdd (clean...
    • [OK] Power Management daemon

    From that moment, only option is to press CTRL-ALT-DEL to reboot the machine.
    Just before rebooting, some status messages are appearing very fast.

    • Even time to black screen is random, it seems to occur when machine is not "processing" (during web browsing, during typing in a Terminal)
    • Kali Linux 2016.1 64-bits was already installed 2 weeks ago without this issue until I did a apt-get dist-upgrade. Then issue appears and decided to do re-installation from scratch.

    Any advice more than welcome. Thanks in advance.
    Fully available to provide more details.

    Fresh install Kali Linux rolling!

    Not update by "update package", this destroy your systeme!

    When Kali finish installed add this code in terminal and update your systeme
    (update by "update package" destroy your systeme!):

    apt-get clean && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y


    Remove nouveau and install nvidia Driver in Kali Rolling 64bit, Nvidia gtx970 graphic card

    no. 1-12 are comands !

    - go in computer-folder etc/X11 and create a new file xorg.conf
    - give them rights read and write for root and administrator

    #open a terminal and type:

    1. sudo apt-get remove nvidia*
    2. sudo apt-get autoremove

    #update and download a few tools that we will need:
    3. sudo apt-get update
    4. sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)

    #Now its time to blacklist the nouveau driver.

    5. sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf

    #and add the following lines:
    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist lbm-nouveau
    options nouveau modeset=0
    alias nouveau off
    alias lbm-nouveau off

    #Disable the Kernel nouveau by typing the following commands:

    6. echo options nouveau modeset=0 | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau-kms.conf
    7. sudo update-initramfs -u

    #Now go to and download the driver for your graphic card.
    (if you have already downloaded this driver, delete it and download again.
    Let them in Download folder.)
    I have install this driver:

    #Reboot your computer and when start option appears, boot in other (Recovery or so named) modus !
    #Login with your root password and follow comands

    8. cd ~/Downloads/ or cd Downloads
    9. chmod +x

    #Stop the X-server:
    10. /etc/init.d/gdm3 stop

    #execute the installation:
    11. ./

    #Follow the instructions on the screen:

    At that point you might get a warning that " The distribution-provided pre-install script failed! are you sure
    that you want to continue?" You can select continue on this one.

    Next it will ask you to register the kernel module source with DKMS. Select "yes"

    If you dont have 32 bit compatibility the you will get a warning. Just select ok.

    You might get a few more steps depends on the hardware and driver version but just before the installation
    finish it will ask you if you want to let the installation to run the nvidia-xconfig for you. Please let this one
    run unless you want and you know how to do that manually.

    Once you finish reboot your computer:

    12. reboot

    Attention, not add this comand nvidia-xconfig , who you can read on others websit, Nvidia driver make it self. !!

    Sorry for my bas swiss english :-)
