    remove nouveau

    I can't for the love of god remove nouveau video drivers to install nvidia to take advantage of my gpu. I have a laptop with geforce mx150 with latest kali live boot with persistent encryption.

    Things ive tried.

    First it tried recommendations of this site on how install nvidia drivers.
    Also i removed all nvidia installs..

    After that i tried https://github.com/europa502/install...-on-Kali-Linux.

    lspci | grep -E "VGA|3D"


    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 620 (rev 07)
    01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP108M [GeForce MX150] (rev a1)

    Disable nouveau
    echo -e "blacklist nouveau\noptions nouveau modeset=0\nalias nouveau off" > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
    update-initramfs -u && reboot

    This ends up returning a error because it can't update initramfs because its locked.

    Had to use the full location to get to generate.
    /user/sbin/update-initramfs.orig.initramfs-toos -u

    cryptsetup error: couldn't resole device overlay
    cryptsetup: warning: couldn't determine root device
    live-boot: core filesystems devices utils udev blockdev ftpfs dns

    Still no luck on reboot.
    lsmod still shows it

    I tried adding it to the boot options and no luck also.

    Any ideas would be fantastic.
    Thanks

    You would probably need to generate a custom iso installing the Nvidia drivers. Following https://docs.kali.org/development/li...ustom-kali-iso

    You definitely want to read through that, and the linked live build manual documentation to get what you want accomplished. As far as I know, the initramfs can't be modified on a live boot system, even with persistence.
