I am a newbie. I want to learn more about White Hat activities, and have been going about it the hard way. Unfortunately, I am stuck.
After I updated the sources.list to the correct repositories, I finally got the proper headers and kernel.
I was missing the deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib. After the apt-get update I entered:
apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r)
apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms
I also disabled nouveau.
Unfortunately, after my successful driver upadte, Kali will not boot.
The screen it hangs on says: OK Update UTMP about system runlevel changes.
I can ctrl+alt+del to restart but I cannot boot in.
System Specs: 16 GB Ram
256GB SSD (Kali and Windows)
2 TB HDD
I7 4790 3.60 Ghz
Has anyone had a similar problem or experience? How do I fix it?
I have limited Linux knowledge, I am just starting my education. Please speak slowly with small words so I can keep up.
