    Missing Intel i915 drivers

    I installed Kali linux(based on Debian) but once I start up I get a command line interface and a message that I have missing drivers for i915. I already installed some of the drivers but I cant get the rest. I have a Intel G465 CPU.

    Have you been able to install this package?

    https://packages.debian.org/sid/firmware-misc-nonfree

    Your version may need to change based on what release of Kali you are using. I wouldn't know which you should use, but sid is the least stable of all of them.

    Don't use Kali Linux. Even the Kali devs say you shouldn't be using Kali.

    As the distribution’s developers, you might expect us to recommend that everyone should be using Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is, however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testers and security specialists, and given its unique nature, it is NOT a recommended distribution if you’re unfamiliar with Linux or are looking for a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution for development, web design, gaming, etc.

    If you are unfamiliar with Linux generally, if you do not have at least a basic level of competence in administering a system, if you are looking for a Linux distribution to use as a learning tool to get to know your way around Linux, or if you want a distro that you can use as a general purpose desktop installation, Kali Linux is probably not what you are looking for.
    Emphasis in original.
