i would register on the kali forums and see about help on this unknown laptop hardware
i know from post 1 that the xorg log mentions a "touch pad"

knowing that this is a LAPTOP would have helped greatly
i am guessing that you have a hibred CPU/GPU
or some odd hardware

I have a netbook. Use IntelŪ Atom™ Processor N2600 Series and IntelŪ Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 Series (Integrated).
I was searching the driver and I found this in the intel faq webpage (https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloa...-linux-1.4.0):
Quote:
QUESTION: I AM LOOKING FOR LINUX* DRIVER SUPPORT FOR MY COMPUTER THAT USES THE "INTELŪ GRAPHICS MEDIA ACCELERATOR 3600 SERIES."

ANSWER:

Due to the complex package dependencies of the binary graphics drivers for the IntelŪ Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 Series used in the IntelŪ Atom™ Processor N2600 Series and IntelŪ Atom™ Processor N2800 Series, supported drivers are only available through your device manufacturer or through Linux distributions providing support for the IntelŪ GMA 3600.
Itīs look like I have a driver problem, and I don't know where to find it.
Sorry for my english again. Thanks

Again, from the log posted in post #1

As you stated above, you have an Intel GMA3600 (device ID 8086:0be1), for which Intel have announced the end of interactive support as of May 27 2016. http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/...000005733.html

Coincidentally, there is a recent thread in the hardware forum about the GMA3600. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...te-4175591026/
As you can read there, that device has not been supported since the 3.2 kernel (or in later versions of Xorg server), so the kernel version (4.6) of your Kali install does not support your graphics device.

Thank you allend! So there is no way I can use kali in my netbook? Maybe an old version of kali, or backtrack?
It's strange, because if I try with live version all works fine.

Sorry, but I really can not help you further with this. I have no experience with Kali or the GMA3600. If it works in the live version, perhaps compare the Xorg.0.log there with that from your install. There may be some magic in this line.

Here is the log of the live version: http://pastebin.com/11gfZ2Lm
I found this:
Quote:
[ 40.299] Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/live/vmlinuz boot=live username=root hostname=kali initrd=/live/initrd.img
and this:
Quote:

Probably there is more interesting info in the pastebin, I just don't know what I am looking for.
Thank you allend!
