usr/bin/opencl directory missing abort
#1
hashcat aborts with a core dump and at the top in red is usr/bin/opencl directory not found

however if i try to trick hashcat by going to the usr/bin and make new folder named opencl then i get some like mem too small.


if it is that i need the opencl drivers where can i get them?

or  is the geforce 8500 gt 512 meg too legacy and i need something like tesla?

what is the usr/bin/opencl is that a folder or a binary?

can i simply copy the binary from another install like The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali) and set the permissions to execute?

The GeForce 8500 is indeed quite outdated. Also, don't take anything from The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali) - its OpenCL is ... questionable.

Get a new card (I'd recommend a used GTX 1080 Founders Edition from eBay if you can swing it), Linux, and the latest drivers from NVIDIA, and follow a simple baseline like:
