Hello people, I am trying to install NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 driver for Kali Linux 2020.1 I followed instructions on this link; https://www.kali.org/docs/general-use/install-nvidia-drivers-on-kali-linux/
sudo apt install -y ocl-icd-libopencl1 nvidia-driver nvidia-cuda-toolkit
Finished install without error, rebooted… But when I enter command “nvidia-smi”, it says: “NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.”
When I type ; lsmod | grep -i nouveau, there is no result, so there is no conflict.
Output of dpkg -l | grep -i icd command is;
ii nvidia-egl-icd:amd64 430.64-5 amd64 NVIDIA EGL installable client driver (ICD)
ii nvidia-opencl-icd:amd64 430.64-5 amd64 NVIDIA OpenCL installable client driver (ICD)
ii nvidia-vulkan-icd:amd64 430.64-5 amd64 NVIDIA Vulkan installable client driver (ICD)
ii ocl-icd-libopencl1:amd64 2.2.12-2 amd64 Generic OpenCL ICD Loader
ii ocl-icd-opencl-dev:amd64 2.2.12-2 amd64 OpenCL development files
ii pocl-opencl-icd:amd64 1.3-10 amd64 pocl ICD
And output of this command; clinfo | grep -i “icd loader”
ICD loader properties
ICD loader Name OpenCL ICD Loader
ICD loader Vendor OCL Icd free software
ICD loader Version 2.2.12
ICD loader Profile OpenCL 2.2
Some people say they found a solution for this problem by disabling secure boot option from BIOS, BUT I have ASUS P5B Motherboard, so I don’t have secure boot option in my BIOS.
I also attached nvidia-bug-report.log.gz to my topic, I hope it helps to clarify the situation.
I’ve been trying to install it for days… I am really exhausted. Please help me :((
