This guide explains how to install proprietary NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver or NVIDIA driver on Kali Linux 1.1.0 kernel 3.18 system. By default Kali Linux installs open source NVIDIA driver nouveau which works great if you just want a display. Open source drivers can be confirmed by using lsmod | grep nouveau command. But like I said in my previous guides, it doesn’t give you 3D acceleration features or GPU acceleration based applications (such as CUDA and GPU pass through). That means you MUST install proprietary NVIDIA driver.
