I’m a newby.
Installed Ubuntu 8.04 64bit in an C2D box with a Quadro NVS290
Installed the CUDA stuff: driver, toolkit + examples
After a lot of removing and installing packages, the “NVidia X server settings” app in Gnome reports a GeForce7300SE/7200GS. All graphic apps seem ok.
CUDA examples don’t work. They compile ok (now) but don’t recognize the GPU and the majority crashes or fails internal checks in emulation mode.
Will a 64bit Ubuntu 7.10 work properly with CUDA and Quadro?
Definitely, if the Quadro is from the chip series corresponding to the Geforce 8000 series. Check Wikipedia if you’re in doubt - if the Quadro is OK, all the other variables you ask about are OK.
A Quadro NVS290 is not the same as a GeForce 7x00. It sounds like you’re encountering a much more fundamental problem here than just getting CUDA support.
You are completly right. I disassembled the machine just to find that inside there is a GF7200GS and NOT a NVS290. There is something I need to sort out with the vendor…
Thank you guys, for the fast and accurate help.
Hehe, that’s unfortunate but - no disrespect intended - pretty funny. Good luck.
