    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Compatible with Kali 2019

    Hi all,

    I was using kali since from 2008/9 ( backtrack), but form last year i am using debian.

    But actually i like to come back again to kali linux.

    My problem was always with nvidia drivers, now i have new laptop with this GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 907m , before i install again kali linux like system OS, not vm, i need to know if it support this GPU (have driver for them), hav any problem , etc

    I need this driver for the best resolution and for steam ( CS:GO)

    if you need any more information about my laptop it's MSI GE62 6QF Apache Pro

    I Hope answer me any one who has experience on this, or have the same GPU

    Kali isn't really meant to be a daily distribution and much less of one to play games on (it's based on Debian testing, which brings updates very often). I'd recommend choosing another distro and use Kali as a VM.

    you can start here

    cuda support was dropped in favor for open cl. so atm im not sure where it stands. i am currently loading up a new vm to see if i cant replicate a process i documented earlier. available here

    cut and paste -

    So as you all should know, cuda support was depreciated over preference of opencl. So Anyone trying to get the latest in Kali update to work with your Nvidia driver you should have had some issues installing the cuda toolkit as there is no longer a repository for it.

    But there is a way, and I got it working today and thought I would share the steps to get hashcat running with cuda support using the latest kali distro. Hope this is in the right location. I am a beginner, so if I make a few mistakes, please be gentle. Cheers


    Kali 2018.3 Nvidia Driver Installation:

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade


    apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)


    apt-get install nvidia-driver nvidia-xconfig

    (now open the text edior to edit the conf file)

    nano /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-blacklists-nouveau.conf

    (delete everything and poste the following):

    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist lbm-nouveau
    options nouveau modset=0
    alias nouveau off
    alias lbm-nouveau off

    (save and exit nano)

    update-initramfs -u


    apt-get install hashcat-nvidia


    This should get you up and running and with no black screen on your final reboot.
    I had managed to get the nvidia drivers to install and work on reboot ONLY when removing nouvea driver FIRST then rebooting BEFORE installing the nvidia driver, but there still was no cuda-toolkit...

    edit: this did in fact dl and install the 390.87 driver btw...

    i got it to work after doing some homework and trying different things but it was on a different computer, same series gpu... which will work but you will have to use older version drivers or image of kali. and I hope ur not gaming on it.
