Can't Run cuda programs

Hi All,
I have a Graphic Card GT218 [GeForce 210] in my pc with OS linux Mint 17.1.
I have installed nvidia-340 driver successfully and also installed cuda-toolkit-6-5.

I have execute the make command for the sample files provided in “cuda-samples/NVIDIA_CUDA-6.5_Samples”. But when i try to run them it fails for example i am uploading the output of the ./deviceQuery

amit@amit-mint:~/cuda-samples/NVIDIA_CUDA-6.5_Samples/bin/x86_64/linux/release$ ./deviceQuery
./deviceQuery Starting…

CUDA Device Query (Runtime API) version (CUDART static linking)

cudaGetDeviceCount returned 30
-> unknown error
Result = FAIL

Thanks in advance

Thank you all,

With ubuntu 14.04, use a driver installer (.run file) from (instead of the repo method you used) and be sure to follow the instructions in the linux getting started guide:

Be sure to remove the nouveau driver before installing CUDA.


I have a cuda code with “#include<cutil.h>” that I need to compile it in MEX file.

Knowing that with cuda6.5 and Visual Studio 2013 I run the

I hope that someone can help me.
