    Post [GUIDE]Loading the intel drivers in the 3.2.6 kernel and 2.6.38 kernel

    This is the simplest way to do it without any type of confusion. This took me long hrs to figure this out. So if it works for any of you Please give a feedback. This was performed on a fresh installation of backtrack 5 R2. So if you have already modified your grub or any other files or installed any other driver packages i would suggest you go back to your default files and remove other driver packages that dint work of you.

    This is for kernel 3.2.6 which is by default after Backtrack 5 R2 installation
    Run the following Commands:

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
    apt-get autoremove xserver-xorg-video-intel
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    nano /etc/default/grub
    add to:GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i915.modeset=1"
    update-grub
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    reboot
    --------OR If you would like to Install 2.6.38 Kernel---------
    Install Kernel 2.6.38

    apt-get install linux-image-generic-lts-backport-natty linux-headers-generic-lts-backport-natty
    add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/intel-driver
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
    apt-get autoremove xserver-xorg-video-intel
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    nano /etc/default/grub
    add to:GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i915.modeset=1"
    update-grub
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    reboot
