You may need to install NVidia's drivers and CUDA on your Debian system -
or, yes, you may use Yellow Dog Linux for CUDA instead.  Or, of course,
you may opt not to use the GPU, in which case your Debian is fine as-is.
Frankly, the GPU support patches for JtR are quite limited (supporting
only a handful of hash types) and inefficient right now... although for
some hash types we may in fact use them (SHA-crypt, phpass).
