What exactly do you see on your screen? What video card do you have?

If you are using an NVidia card, see 0003872 for a possible work-around.

Hello rhertzog,

i am really sure, that "tyuiop" get the screen like in "nopossiblelogin.jpg" which I got several times too :P

Just over a usual system install. Then I have only

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade

And in addition on the second try: I have read the Kali Linux Documentation for Nvidia drivers like here: http://docs.kali.org/general-use/install-nvidia-drivers-on-kali-linux

The actual dist-upgrade, installs the linux-headers directly and the third instruction is in this case senseless:

"apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r)"

because $(uname -r) is after the complete dist-upgrade (in that moment) "4.6.0-kali1-amd64" when the user attempts to enter it...

But there is another interesting thing too, that I could not understand till now.

I updated grub etc. and then rebooted..

And I see at the extended boot option menu (I don't know the exact conception of that at the moment *shame*

Two different linux-kernel versions? The 4.6 and the 4.9? But why?
