Pyrit doesnt recognize GPU at backtrack 5
  

Hello.
I have now basically tried everything.
I tried first doing what is on this site:
graphic card driver gets installed (had to force stop nouveau driver), and pyrit got installed too, but it doesn't recognize my GPU

My GPU is a nVidia Geforce GTX 560M 2GB 128-bit

Re: Pyrit doesnt recognize GPU at backtrack 5

Can you download pyrit from svn, then compiling "cpyrit" and "pyrit" and building both. Then download the nvidia cuda driver and toolkit. Both can be found here hxxp://xxx.nvidia.com/object/cuda_get.html just choose linux 32 bit and ubuntu 8.10 then download the driver and the toolkit and install it in your pc.

Re: Pyrit doesnt recognize GPU at backtrack 5

sry, but I wrote this thread in a hurry, so I forgot to link where I followed the first advice.
the link is here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/...A_On_BackTrack

about that cpyrit, how do I do that?
sry for being a noob, but with backtrack 4 everything was built in, and I had an old supported GPU.
but this one seems to be very new to backtrack 5?

So basically I do this in the following order?:
Deactivate nouveau driver by adding this "nouveau.modeset=0" to the grub.cfg file.
Then installing the latest VGA driver. One question here: I get a question in the middle of the driver installation that if I want to install the openGL 32x something, should I chose yes? (I have a backtrack 5 64bit gnome btw).
then downloading pyrit from svn. I can do this.
but then compile it??? how

Re: Pyrit doesnt recognize GPU at backtrack 5

Have you made sure that your GPU's are compatible? You could do a [i]"pyrit benchmark" to see the performance of each core but most importantly to see if it's pickin up your graphics cards. One of my friend once installed the latest nvidia drivers, forgetting that he needed the "cuda" enabled drivers. Maybe you did that by mistake as well.

Re: Pyrit doesnt recognize GPU at backtrack 5

I had to reinstall backtrack and use this video to get it working
How to Get Pyrit working on Backtrack 5 (FIRST BT5 tutorial on Youtube !) - YouTube
Thanks for the help

Now there is another thing I noticed that may improve the PMKs number:
I have a i7 2630QM 2.0GHz and with turbo boost it goes up to 2.9.
the problem is, where do I get the turbo boost program/method?
or do I need to make a new thread?

By turbo boost program, you mean to say that you want to overclock your i7 core processor? Is there any such tools to boost up processor in linux, well do you know any of them?

this question is for me...?
I found a program called i7z which monitors the cpu, and it turned out that linux already did the turbo boost but its hidden from the built in "CPU Frequency monitor".
