    Default backtrack-nvidia error

    I'm unsure if its the same kernel problem as pureh@te is aware of in the ATI bug thread, but I receive these errors when installing the backtrack-nvidia package from synaptic. I'll delve a bit deeper if not.

    Code:
    E: nvidia-driver: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    E: cpyrit-cuda: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    E: cuda-toolkit: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    E: cuda-gdb: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    E: cuda-multiforcer: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    E: cuda-sdk: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    E: backtrack-nvidia: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

    Anyway, I've got to say I'm very impressed with everything else though! Great work guys.

    Show me the command you are running and what model card you have. I just recheck every thing and it all works fine here. To be fair I have never tried with synaptic. I only test with apt-get although seems like it would be the same.

    edit: You have to stop X before you install the nvidia-driver. I havent found a fix for that yet. Stop X and then apt-get nvidia-driver

    edit: I am almost done with a complete CUDA & Backtrack .pdf. I must apologize for not having it done before the release but its because I am a lazy slacker

    Right, well it all seemed to download and install using no X and apt-get properly, unlike synaptic which didn't seem to download the packages fully, but when trying to list_cores it crashes backtrack completely. I'm going to reinstall backtrack onto my drive as I don't like my partition setup and try again. I'll also try on my machine with the 280 in it.

    how so? did you install the rest of the stuff it needs? Would you please read the .pdf I created. pyrit does not have the CUDA module. you have to apt-get that as well.
