GTX 1060 3GB Kali Linux (Omen)

Good afternoon,
I thank you please help me with a problem that I have with my Kali Linux virtual machine, although I install the necessary packages for the operation and recognition of the video card tells me that it does not find it, I appreciate your help.


root@xxx:~# apt install -y ocl-icd-libopencl1 nvidia-driver nvidia-cuda-toolkit

root@xxx:~# nvidia-smi
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

  1. Which hypervisor?
  2. Did you pass it through, i.e. is it visible in lspci on the guest?
  3. Did you hide the hypervisor?

Thanks for responding, the Hosted Hypervisor is “VMware: Workstation”, when I run an lspci, nothing on the card appears. And excuse me but I don’t understand the third point.

VmWare Workstation doesn’t support this.

Do you know which Hypervisor can I use, that really goes and recognize the card?

VMware ESXi
Windows Server HyperV
Support PCI passthrough.

Thank you very much I will try, one more concern, my laptop has Windows 10 and VMWare installed and in the VMWare there is Linux, so I look for any of the ones you suggest for Windows and virtualize the correct Linux?

I explain myself, I have in my Windows 10 the VMWare Workstation Pro 15 and in this virtualize the Debian Kali

Won’t work, Windows 10 client versions don’t support this. No dice.

I understand, thank you very much for your help and for your time.

Excuse me, I currently have Windows 10 Home, if I upload it to Windows 10 Pro, what does Hyper V have if it works?

No client version will work. Only Windows Server 2016 and up. An in case you don’t know, You need two graphics cards for this to work at all, one for the host and one to pass through to the guest.

Ok, I ask you another question, and if I install Linux on another partition, to start with Windows or Linux, as a double boot

That of course works.

Oh really?!!! I’m going to do it. I really appreciate your help and your time, you are very kind and gentle. Thank you!!!
