Install AMD Drivers and AMD-APP-SDK for Pyrit, CPyrit on Kali 1.0.5

  Kali, Linux, Pentesting

Follow this page to get the Current Drivers from non-free repo installed:

Download the script here:

Then, install the AMD-APP-SDK.

Download from here:

Must be version 2.7 , as it is the one compatible with the 12.6 non-free repo Radeon Driver


Then, these packages must be installed, to get cmake and cmake++

apt-get install libboost-python-dev zlib1g-dev libssl-dev cmake libboost1.49-all-dev

Before we can install cmake++ we need to set the ATI Stream paths:

export ATISTREAMSDKROOT" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc

Now we can proceed with the installation:

svn co calpp
cd calpp/trunk
cmake .
make install

Install additional package to be able to compile Pyrit

 apt-get install libpcap0.8-dev

In addition now we can install Pyrit with the OpenCL option.

svn checkout /tmp/pyrit
cd /tmp/pyrit/pyrit && python build && python install
cd /tmp/pyrit/cpyrit_opencl && python build && python install

Now we can test Pyrit.

pyrit list_cores
pyrit benchmark
