    Question Nvidia cpyrit-cuda

    So I just installed bt4 final and I'm loving it. Everything seems to work great. Except...

    I'm trying to get cpyrit working on here and following the .pdf guide

    hxxp://forums.remote-exploit.org/backtrack-4-howto/23811-backtrack4-pre-final-cuda-all-one-guide.html

    , which was originally written for bt4 prefinal, does not work for me. I installed nvidia-driver, pyrit, and cpyrit-cuda and then typed

    Code:
    #pyrit list_cores
    which just output my two cpu cores with no mention of my gpu. I've searched around the new forum a bit, but I havent seen any thread regarding this.

    Could somone help me get pyrit to recognize my gpu? FYI, my gpu is an Nvidia GeForce 8400M.


    Solved: I took a look at that .pdf document you posted and noticed that you said I could check to see if the driver was properly installed by greping the xorg.conf file. So I did just that and found that there was no mention of nvidia as the driver. Reading on down the document, I used nvidia-xconfig to generate a new xorg.conf file. After reinstalling pyrit and cpyrit-cuda, pyrit now recognizes my gpu core . Thanks again for that .pdf

    I wrote a new version for bt 4 final. Its hard to help you with out more information but it sounds like you are not actually using the nvidia-driver

    I'll check out that pdf, thanks

    Is there a way to see what driver is currently being used for a particular device?

    Code:
    aptitude install backtrack-nvidia
    will do, without putting in every single package individually

    thanks for that update; Im replaying to you because over there you mention about a "The WPA Wordlist"
    apt-get -y install -d wpa-wordlist
    my question is there another way to download that wpa wordlist because I'm still using bt4pf.

    Should download fine as long as you have the correct repositories
