Does anyone know how to install fglrx-driver in Kali Linux?

I tried but everytime i do i get this:

root@kali:~/Downloads# apt-get install fglrx-driver 
Reading package lists... Done

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 fglrx-driver : Depends: xorg-video-abi-18 but it is not installable or
                         xorg-video-abi-15 but it is not installable or
                         xorg-video-abi-14 but it is not installable or
                         xorg-video-abi-13 but it is not installable or
                         xorg-video-abi-12 but it is not installable or

                         xorg-video-abi-6.0 but it is not installable

I tried googleing this and how to fix it but i found nothing.

All ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I tried them and they didn't work :

Heh. It recommends libgl1-fglrx-glx-i386 but I'm guessing you have something a wee bit newer than that. More like libgl1-fglrx-glx-x86_64 if such a thing exists.

I've had this problem when a few times trying to install packages. I usually look on debian.org for the packages. Sometimes there's a package that depends on a package that depends on another package and so on and so forth but eventually you find it or you rage quit. Or you have to install some deprecated library that breaks your system and creates security issues.

Have you tried this?

apt-get install kali-linux-gpu

Or maybe?

apt-get install amd-opencl-icd

Yes it's very frustrating, i have been searching the net for hours and triing different "solutions" but nothing has work so far thats why i made this post to see if any of you guys might be able to help. I tried those commands and they install with any problems so it seem to be that so far the only problem i am having is installing the fglrx-driver so i can get my graphics card to work.

I came across this post on the kali forums:

https://forums.kali.org/showthread.php?26902-AMD-Drivers-Issues-Kali-2-0-%28Radeon-HD-7400M%29&highlight=radeon

and wondered where and how i can download and install these unofficial drivers from, everytime i search i keep getting directed to AMD's offiicial site with their official drivers?

I think i have solved it, finally.

From the start all i wanted to do is use my graphics card in my desktop to work in the newly updated Kali Linux 2.0 since the old tutorials don't work anymore. Specifically i wanted my GPU to work with pyrit but my card wasn't being recognised even though it is fully supported.

Well after days and days of searching and asking you guys for help (all of which was very very appreciated and i thank you) i think i finally did it. My card is being picked up by pyrit and i can now use my GPU in Kali Linux 2.0.

Here's how i managed to do it:

1) Go to the website - https://wiki.freedesktop.org/xorg/radeonBuildHowTo/

2) Using the information from the site open up a terminal and enter:

git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati

3) Then when that is finished, in the same terminal i entered:

apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-video-ati

4) Then change into the newly installed xf86-video-ati directory and issue the following commands:

./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/xorg
     make
     sudo make install

5) Then apt-get install synaptic and install opencl packages - click on search and type opencl and you should see them.

6) Remove stock pyrit from kali linux

7) Install pyrit and cpyrit-opencl as normal (i chose cpyrit-opencl becasue my graphics card is an AMD Radeon R9 208)


That's it. So far it's working. Hope this can help someone else who is stuck.

Nice to see you worked it out. The problem you're facing now is that since it's not actually a package that the package manager knows about there's a real chance any future update you do to kali will overwrite the files you just installed.

My advice to you would be to make a script of these commands so that if an update breaks your video you have something to get things going again.

Nice! Going to tweet so others can find if they have the same issue. Now if only we can figure out the battery/power settings ;)

That's no problem, but i can only tell you what worked for me.

apt-get install synaptic if you haven't already.

Click on the search button and type "opencl" - without quotes.

In the results list you should install:

amd-libopencl1

amd-opencl-icd

gdb

gdbserver

libclc-dev

libclc-r600

mesa-opencl-icd

mesa-opencl-dbg

multiforcer

nvidia-opencl-dev

nvidia-opencl-common

nvidia-opencl-icd

opencl-headers

Some of these are probably not nessesary and have nothing to do with it but that is everything i have installed when synaptic shows me my search results and so far i have been able to use my amd gpu with pyrit.

There is one thing, even through i managed to get pyrit working i had a confusing error when i tried to use oclhashcat.

apt-get install oclhashcat - installed without issue but the error came when i tried to use it:

root@Kali:~# oclhashcat -m 2500 -a3 /root/Dropbox/cracking/test.hccap ?u?u?u?u?u?u?u?
oclHashcat v1.36 starting...

Generating bitmap tables with 16 bits...

ERROR: clGetDeviceIDs() -1

Does anyone know how to solve this one?

Pulling straws but they make mention of AMD info here about a segfault, although you didn't post that error, try running with "--gpu-temp-disable" and see what happens?

Thanks but that doesn't work. Think i need to install catalyst 14.9 but I'm a bit wary of doing this in case it breaks what took me ages to find out about my GPU

How would you run catalyst? Do they have a complete linux port, cause I don't think wine would help in a situation like this.

The easy way to do it.. I wrote a bash script for this because i keep breaking python with cal++ (which also happened in kali) every time it happens it seems the only solution is a fresh install.

Here goes...

By the looks of things you're packages are broken to bits maybe consider a fresh install and apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

mv /usr/lib64 /usr/.lib64
mv /usr/x86_64-linux-gnu /usr/.x86_64-linux-gnu
apt-get install gcc g++ make dkms fakeroot

# Download https://mega.co.nz/#!249nkZ6D!G_QanBu2lj5N3MnbHtC3kQLleV5QaSSE51iwfosnyn0

cp ~/Download/Catalyst_15.7.tar.gz ~/
tar zxvf Catalyst_15.7.tar.gz
cd Setup-Experimental
mkdir /lib/modules/4.0.0-kali1-amd64/build/include/linux
cp /usr/include/linux/version.h /lib/modules/4.0.0-kali1-amd64/build/include/linux/
sh ati-installer.sh 15.20 --install
! IMPORTANT DON'T REBOOT !
 aticonfig --initial
