As every one knows Alex and I do lots of work with Nvidia Graphics cards and CUDA password cracking. I recently encountered the following error when trying to boot Backtrack 4 Linux on our CUDA server. Below I explain the error and why it happens and how to fix it.
I recently started using the Vim editor again. It used to be my favorite because of all the great plugins.
