Nvidia Drivers - Kali 1.0.9 (3.18 Kernel)


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm having some issues trying to get nvidia drivers installed in Kali Linux 1.0.9. The kernel has just been updated today to 3.18 and I've tried following guides here:


and here:


But everytime I reboot Kali, it wont run the gnome display manager and I can't start the desktop?

I'm using a 4770K CPU and a GTX980 GPU. Has anyone managed to get this working?

Many thanks!

For something specific like this if ita possibly a bug it should probably be asked on the kali foruma or check their bug tracker if it is an issue they may have a fix for or work around. If its kernel specific and worked with the old drivers before updating I'd think the kali team would like to know so they can test it out and come up with a fix

After a bit of research I discovered that the GTX9xx series requires its own specific CUDA libs. So what I've done is installed unbuntu 14.04 on my workstation and installed the CUDA .run file from here. Then compiled pyrit and cpyrit from source.

I'm going to use Kali on my ultrabook for actual grabbing of the 4-way handshake and then transfer it to my workstation for cracking. Just building a wordlist now that is 1750GB in size :-D

This may help so you can continue to just use Kali:

Tried this as well at the time. I think that the best thing to do with Kali is install everything from Source an wait for the Kali Devs to give proper support from the Repo's.
