    Problems installing Nvidia display driver

    Hi everybody,

    I am new to linux, and I am starting to learn it. I installed yesterday Kali distribution on my Dell Precision 7510 with "NVIDIA Corporation GM107GLM [Quadro M2000M] (rev a2)" display adapter and "Intel Corporation HD Graphics 530 (rev 06)". This laptop has 4K display and I was having troubles using it (font is too small during installation).

    Now I want to install Nvidia display driver to be able to use my HDMI screen (because it is not detected in the Display Settings). I downloaded '' file for the installation and followed this tutorial to install it :
    I run through a lot of problems with that tutorial but I solved them by searching, but now I am stuck with this problem when running the driver installation :

     ERROR: An error occurred while performing the step: "Building kernel modules". See /var/log/nvidia-installer.log for details.
      ERROR: The nvidia kernel module was not created.
      ERROR: Installation has failed.  Please see the file
             '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.  You may find suggestions   
             on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux     
             driver download page at
    I searched but nothing

    Here is the log file :

    Thank you very much!
