Hi everyone,

these are my information

* Backtrack 5 32 bit
* Virtual Box (Version Ubuntu)
* Already Donwloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-270.41.06.run from www.NVIDIA.com.au

However when i try and install the driver, i first receive a message stating that
" You do not appear to have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the 270.40 NVIDIA Linux graphic driver installed in this system'

i then press Ok and recieve the term and conditions with 'Accept', ' Do not Accept'. I Press Accept and it starts building the Kernel. However when it reaches 100% i recieve another message stating
'unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. this happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel.........' and when i press ok i receive a message stating installation failed.

i have tried EVERYTHING to FIX this Problem but no success

try this boy
after having a net connection
type in console

prepare-kernel-sources

cd /usr/src/linux
cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/


chmod +x nvidiafilename (you got it from www.nvidia.com > driver download and select yours )

log out and run the following command (before you startx)

sh nvidiafilename

i tried it on hdd installation for bt5|64bit and it works well

chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-270.41.06.run
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-270.41.06.run


make sure you are in the right directory log out and do


sudo ls


run the above command is the file is in the current directory if not cd in the folder or move the file to root

Are you trying to install the drivers on a VM ?

If you have bt running in a virtual machine the nvidia driver will not be recognized but you will have an emulated display card.
