Compiling CUDA 9.0 Samples on Ubuntu 16.04 has error

I am on Ubuntu 16.04. When I attempt to compile the CUDA samples here is the error message

cd NVIDIA_CUDA-9.0_Samples

make[1]: Entering directory '/home/jasjuang/NVIDIA_CUDA-9.0_Samples/3_Imaging/EGLStream_CUDA_CrossGPU'

make: *** [3_Imaging/EGLStream_CUDA_CrossGPU/Makefile.ph_build] Error 2

and then I googled the keyword EGL_SUPPORT_REUSE_NV
and realize this keyword is part of eglext.h as indicated in In my machine, there is a eglext.h at /usr/include/EGL/eglext.h, however when I inspect it, it appears to be an older version of eglext.h that does not have the keyword EGL_SUPPORT_REUSE_NV. In line 8 it shows Copyright (c) 2013-2016 The Khronos Group Inc, whereas in the line 8 of it shows Copyright (c) 2013-2017 The Khronos Group Inc.

I further research and discovered that eglext.h is part of the libegl1-mesa-dev package in Ubuntu 16.04. However, there isn’t a way for me to upgrade it. How can I compile the CUDA 9.0 samples on Ubuntu 16.04?

Too add more information. My NVIDIA driver is 384.90, and my GPU is GeForce GTX TITAN X. I can also successfully execute deviceQuery

Hey Jason,

I just installed CUDA Toolkit and I exactly got the same error. However deviceQuery is not working as well. My driver is 375.66 and my GPU is GeForce GTX 960M. Sorry I am an amateur here, I do not know how to proceed as well.

Edit: deviceQuery is working and some other test programs like histogram and stuff are also working

You can’t use 375.66 with CUDA 9. Use the driver that comes with the CUDA 9 toolkit installer.

@txbob my driver is 384.90. Do you have any ideas on how to compile the samples?

@txbob - Thank you so much. My main purpose was using Caffe so I downgraded it to use with CUDA 8. That particular driver 375.66 will work with CUDA 8 right ?

Secondly, if the driver is not supposed to work with CUDA 9, why where most of sample programs running ?Just like deviceQuery ?

Thanks in advance

Replace the EGL files under /usr/include/EGL from the below link

It seems to work for me.

@fayez37 That’s bizarre. I would imagine using the up to date headers along with out of date libraries will have some issues. Is there a way to update the entire EGL all together?

Hey, a question, I have a driver 384.90, can I use CUDA 9 ? (NVIDIA Corporation GF106GL [Quadro 2000])
Other little thing, when i run the sample nbody it give me this:

CUDA error at bodysystemcuda_impl.h:281 code=13(cudaErrorInvalidSymbol) “setSofteningSquared(softeningSq)”

What could be? Thanks

Your GF106GL gpu is a Fermi cc2.x GPU that is not supported by CUDA 9. CUDA 8 is the last CUDA version that supported Fermi GPUs.

@JasonJuang I had the same error and the solution was replace the EGL files under /usr/include/EGL as @fayez37 said. if you do that nothing wrong is going to happen because this is the right way to install EGL. You can find this information on
