A recent wordpress update has broken my theme. I hope to fix it as soon as I get some time. Probably couple of days.     Apologize for the delay.

Well compared to Kali, installing Nvidia drivers here is a breeze. As this distro is based on ubuntu rather than debian we have a fairly simple way to install the driver. I could not find any backbox specific post anywhere hence this quick tutorial. Also, this applies to Ubuntu distro as well. Just follow these simple steps rather than long elaborative tutorials you find anywhere else. Installation

To select a different driver, or if the above doesn’t work:

  Verify the installation The last thing to do is verify that the nvidia drivers are loaded and working. Run the lspci command again and this time the kernel driver should show nvidia

Check the last line which says “kernel driver in use: nvidia”. This shows that nvidia drivers are now in action. Also check hardware acceleration with the glxinfo command

The OpenGL renderer string should be anything other than “MESA”. Then it indicates that the hardware drivers are being used for hardware acceleration. You can just also run the following command on the terminal to see if its working:

  I hope this works out for you too!  

I made the jump today to Windows 10 and like many other legacy (mobility) card users the support isn’t there (yet), besides the drivers which are automatically installed by Windows. Therefore, I thought I’d make a quick guide of how I got the legacy drivers installed on my laptop and have the Catalyst Control Center up and running. They are basically the same steps which I had to do with Windows 8/8.1 previously.   Drivers installed with this guide: Legacy Windows version: Windows 10 Pro x64 Laptop: Dell Studio 1555   I suppose the following steps should also work for graphics card considered legacy now for desktops. However, do note that I applied these steps for my laptop which has a re-branded ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 (HD 5650).     Here are the steps:   1: Download the legacy driver for your system (legacy drivers link provided above) and run the installer but close it after it unpacked all the installation files to C:\AMD. 2: Open Device Manager. 3: Under Display adapters right click on the adapter used in your system and click Update Driver Software. 4: Click on the second option Browse my computer for driver software. 5: Read more
