    Default pyrit with CUDA support not showing CUDA cores

    hey was just wondering if anyone could help im running a Dell XPS 420 with a Nvidia 9800 GT with BT4

    ive been attempting to get CUDA support for a while but i keep hitting walls everywhere i go... so far ive been using the guide provided by pureh@te (which is very good by the way) i issue the following commands in terminal without KDE running

    apt-get update
    apt-get install nvidia-driver
    apt-get install pyrit cpyrit-cuda

    pyrit list_cores

    while all the updates and package downloads work fine (KDE also runs without errors and the xorg.conf recognises the Nvidia card) pyrit on the other hand will only list the CPU cores and not the GPU...

    i also read on one of the posts that "aptitude install backtrack-nvidia" is supposed so solve the problem...however it reported that the package was broken

    any advice would be great

    i tried installing the sdk package but backtrack reported it as a broken...this the same thing was reported when i tried "aptitude install backtrack-nvidia"... was i doing something wrong ? If not, is there an alternate source to download the cuda-sdk package that will work with BT4 final release ?

    These problems are due to the new kernel. The will be fixed with in a few days. all of the nvidia/cuda stuff is kernel dependant so make sure you are running the 2.6.34 kernel otherwise they will not work. Also the new cda SDK package is 1.4 gigs so we have removed it from our repo. You can get it from the nvidia download site if you need it.

    Thats what I am saying, the new kernel went in effect with out having the new nvidia packages compiled against it so essentially all the nvidia stuff is built for the old kernel. We are not perfect so there was a small lapse in package management.

    yeah thats totally fine..i already think the bt team does more than enough to get this off the ground as well as provide support... thanks for the help/ guide on getting pyrit to work with CUDA support (if purehate and pureh@te are the same person)

    Hi,
    I am having the exact same problem with Pyrit not seeing my Geforce 260m. Has a fix or workaround been released?
