Hello everybody, I’m a new member and wishing CUDA user, I’m trying to install CUDA 2.3 on MAC OSX Snow Leopard.
I downloaded and installed, in this order:
CUDA Driver: CUDA Driver 2.3.1 for use with Quadro FX 4800 or GeForce GTX 285 on MacOS X 10.5.2 or later (pre-SnowLeopard), and any NVIDIA GPU on SnowLeopard --> I have SnowLeopard so thought this was the best choice
CUDA Toolkit: CUDA Toolkit 2.3 for Mac OS
CUDA SDK: CUDA SDK 2.3 code samples for Mac OS
Visual Profiler: CUDA Visual Profiler v1.3 for Mac OS
But when installing Visual Profiler a message appears: “Unable to load the ‘/usr/local/cuda/lib/libcuda.dylib’ library. CUDA Visual Profiler device features will be disabled.”, where i can get it? Or what i have do to to make ev’thing running?
I also tried installation o Windows Xp running via VMware, but Visual profiler asked me for “nvcuda.dll”, i downloaded and put it in system32 and now appears “Cannot initialize CUDA”. What should I do know?
Hmm, i dont know whats going wrong. I dont have that problem.
Maybe its on order of install the parts (driver, SDK, Tools) problem ?
At least for the 3.0x Version:
[b]1) Install CUDA toolkit
Install CUDA driver
Install CUDA SDK[/b]
The reason for this is that, while in step 1, the following file is installed: “/usr/local/cuda/lib/libcuda.dylib”, step 2’s installer package simply overwrites any existing /usr/local/cuda/lib/ folder with its own, which doesn’t include libcuda.dylib.
You can also try to use the new 3.0beta driver/tools/sdk, which should be better for running in SL (64 Bit).
The 2.3 stable cant use Snow Leopard in 64 Bit Kernelmode.
Im pretty sure it is. I was able to successfully install/verify the installation by running the sample programs provided in the SDK with 3.0 on my 13" MBP (mid 2010) w/ GeForce 320M. I am trying to downgrade to 2.3(since the emulator mode ain’t working so hot for me in 3.0) and am getting a wrong architecture error when trying to make the SDK files.
