Bad checksum for Cuda 8.0 for Ubuntu 14.04

Seems the most methods of installing Cuda 8.0 for Ubuntu 14.04 are failing:

ubuntu@host:~$ md5sum cuda-repo-ubuntu1404-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64-deb
407b939b35a887044653337db99b1338 cuda-repo-ubuntu1404-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64-deb

compared to the published checksum:

a4b9657a8ee026e0c97270b2d4174a8a cuda-repo-ubuntu1404-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb

The Ubuntu 16.04 deb has the correct checksum however:

ubuntu@host:~$ md5sum cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64-deb
d735c7fed8be0e72fa853f65042d5438 cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64-deb

d735c7fed8be0e72fa853f65042d5438 cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb

Is it possible the 14.04 release of Cuda 8.0 has a bad build at the moment?

Same issue here. In addition to the deb, the .run file is not matching the published checksum either, e.g.:

downloaded file:
416979dd6df6fe601d99facd0cfe2874 cuda_8.0.61_375.26_linux.run

published:
33e1bd980e91af4e55f3ef835c103f9b cuda_8.0.61_375.26_linux.run

Oh thank god, I thought I was going mad. I’m getting exactly the same as MichaelVeth above, and have spent 6 hours repeatedly downloading it because I thought there must be an error.

The .run file appears to be the same for either 16.04 or 14.04. Both crash with:

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data–format violated
Extraction failed.
Ensure there is enough space in /tmp and that the installation package is not corrupt
Signal caught, cleaning up

Same issue here.

Getting the same checksum results from md5sum of the downloaded 14.04 .deb and .run files as you guys are. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Hi all.
Same problem for me 14hours ago!
I was becoming mad with that… Thanks for your posts!

Hopefully this will be fixed soon. -> +1

I downloaded the run file 5 times in total trying to troubleshoot every possible thing that could be wrong with my Ubuntu.

I get exactly the same hash as michaelveth. Glad to know this problem is from Nvidia side lol a slight relief!

seven ours later… the issue remains.

Does anyone know of an nVidia email address (or PM?) where we can draw their attention to this? Presumably it’s just a matter of reuploading the files, which shouldn’t be too much to ask, even on a weekend…

Same problem here with the checksums and it’s affecting all possible methods to get cuda for ubuntu 14.04, using the provided checksums by https://developer.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/8.0/Prod2/docs/sidebar/md5sum-txt i get the following:

The .run file

-From NVIDIA:
33e1bd980e91af4e55f3ef835c103f9b cuda_8.0.61_375.26_linux.run
-Downloaded file:
416979dd6df6fe601d99facd0cfe2874 cuda_8.0.61_375.26_linux.run

The .deb (local) package

-From NVIDIA:
a4b9657a8ee026e0c97270b2d4174a8a cuda-repo-ubuntu1404-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb

The .deb (network) method

-After adding the repo and executing:

# apt-get install cuda

-Throws:

I think it is worth mentioning that this problem is also afecting the embedded developer program, since we cannot install the JetPack software/utilities without cuda and the Jetpack installer’s method to get cuda is the last one from above.

Thanks for reporting this, and apologies for the inconvenience!

We’re investigating and will update this thread as soon as we have a resolution.

A couple of our key people are out right now, so we’re trying to track down folks who can help over the weekend.

Unfortunately, it occurs just now about cuda-visual-tools-8-0_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb
in http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1404/x86_64/.

After downloading it , I tried to install that, dpkg complains “unexpected end of file or stream”.

I hope it will be fixed soon…

I am observing the same error for the .run installer for cuda 8.0 on Ubuntu 16.04:

ubuntuHost:~/Downloads$ sudo sh ./cuda_8.0.61_375.26_linux.run

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data–format violated
Extraction failed.
Ensure there is enough space in /tmp and that the installation package is not corrupt
Signal caught, cleaning up

I hope the installer for 16.04 will also be fixed soon.

I’m also in trouble with the same problem with my ubuntu with 16.04 version.
Please fix it.

$ sudo sh cuda_8.0.61_375.26_linux.run

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data–format violated
Extraction failed.
Ensure there is enough space in /tmp and that the installation package is not corrupt
Signal caught, cleaning up

Uggggg Nvidia please fix the issue. Exact same problem

Note: the opensuse 13.2 version has the same problem.

Accepting packages with wrong checksums can lead to a corrupted system and in extreme cases even to a system compromise.

I also face the same problem, bad checksum. I have to download the cuda toolkit achieve to temporarily avoid the problem

Would you care to elaborate? What exactly did/do you download, and how did/does that solve the problem?

Thanks.

I think he might mean the CUDA Toolkit Archive:


which has a slightly older version available. I haven’t tried it because I want the version which matches my current drivers, but if it works for you…

I’ve tried it (7.5) and it didn’t work for me.

I just installed CUDA 7.5 from repo (package manager) and had no trouble with it on Ubuntu 14.04
