hashcat needs XNVCTRL library: libXNVCtrl.so: but wont work anf other things
Once typed in apt-get install libxnvctrl-dev, hashcat stops working, cant remember the error code.
so use psensor to keep an eye on temps.

Even tried un-installing that but nothing, when I un-install the library hashcat works again.

Also sometimes im not getting a good hash speeds, it seems to drop to 4000 and wont rise, till reboot.
Then I get 175K/h which eventual frps to 167.9
Here is my terminal out put

root@MrRobot:~# hashcat --restore

You need to fix your Xsetup

See the Xsetup section here: https://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=lin...nvironment

Sorry man but it's not hashcats fault. Please ask on The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali) forums
ok thanks dude, I do like hashcat and its a pretty cool program.
You and your team did really well, I guess the problem is because I bought a new laptop and I guess its that new some stuff wont work. it was only until a few weeks ago the updates allowed my internal wifi to work, but I still use an external decent card with a big ass antenna, wish my gf would let me climb the roof and put it up there.

But hey I guess she doesn't want me to slip and die.
