    Default Backtrack4-pre final CUDA all in one guide

    I have created a .pdf due to all of the problems there have been regarding CUDA installs. Please report any bugs or issues with any of the gpu related packages to me.

    I will probably find a better place to host this but for now you can down load the .pdf here

    backtrack-cuda.pdf - 1.3 Mb

    Thanks very much for this! Going to give it a go later today if I get the chance now (=
    Im intrigue to see how much of a difference it makes!

    btw, hosting Ive found that mediafire is the best (no typing in stuff - multidownloads at once). Already uploaded it for you:

    ~ Have you, g0tmi1k? ~
    :rolleyes: <(^^,)> :p d[-_^]b (= =D-->--< :eek:

    Default CUDA Guide Clarification

    Hello, I know this thread is a little old but this seemed like the best place to post this. I ran into one issue with your CUDA guide. In the section quoted below.

    such as Pyrit however if you want to build any CUDA applications you will need this environment.
    After installing the nvidia-driver package pyrit list_cores still just showed my CPU. Just for kicks and in case I was reading the article wrong I installed the toolkit and now pyrit shows my GPU.

    I am not sure if this was something funky with my install or me just misreading due to lack of sleep but I figured it would be helpful to point out in case others have issues.

    Red face trying to follow the guide but no luck

    Hi there Pureh@te

    I have the guide and have downloaded it for BT4 PF,

    when I
    Code:
    cd to /opt/cuda/NVIDIA_CUDA_SDK/
    Code:
    ls
    I get

    Code:
    root@bt:/opt/cuda/NVIDIA_CUDA_SDK# ls
    bin  C  CforCUDA_SDK_license.txt  cudpp_license.txt  lib  shared
    it's no like the directory in the guide at all.

    and if I run make i get

    Code:
    root@bt:/opt/cuda/NVIDIA_CUDA_SDK# make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.


    I have checked that pyrit is installed, and it is, but when I run

    Code:
    pyrit list_cores
    I get

    Code:
    The ESSID-blobspace seems to be empty; you should create an ESSID...
    
    The following cores seem available...
    #1:  'CPU-Core (x86)'
    root@bt:/opt/cuda/NVIDIA_CUDA_SDK#
    I followed the guide when it says to
    Code:
    apt-get install nvidia-driver
    I have a geforce 9500gt which says on the wiki it is supported......


    so i'm begging please for a little help........and much appreciate the effort that has already been put into BT4 and the guide.


    thanks

    The nvidia-driver package is currently broken due to kernel upgrades. Either wait for it to be fixed or install all of the packages from source.

    Wink cheers Pureh@te

    I'll wait for the nvidia packages, just a question though, does this mean just the driver or everything?

    cause I did download the newest cuda driver and still got nothing so i'm guessing you mean all the cuda tools/packages etc.......


    I will wait


    again thanks

    cd /tmp

    Code:
    wget http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/185.18.36/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run
    chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run
    ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run
    then

    Code:
    nvidia-xconfig
    see if that installs the drivers the way you want them...
