    Question NVIDIA drivers on kernel version 5.5.0-kali2-amd64?

    Hi, I've had some trouble trying to install NVIDIA graphics driver, since it installs correctly but does not load. My system detects my card perfectly fine when I run neofetch or lspci (btw, it is an NVIDIA 940MX). I've tried reinstalling a lot of times, I tried patching xorg config and blacklisting nouveau. And yes, I tried reinstalling it after a complete wipe of the driver. Nothing. Also I tried installing it without any GUI (killing the entire DE, leaving me with just a terminal). Also nothing, the driver doesn't want to load. I really need this to work since I want to use hashcat, but I can't for now.

    Do you know what might be causing the problem? Thanks.

    i am also searching for a solution to switch to NVIDIA from Intel.. normally in other Linux distros there is a package called prime-select and we can easily switch to NVIDIA with that. i cant find this package in apt in kali. dose anyone know how to switch GPU?
