CUDA 5.5 driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version.

I am running Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS with a GeForce GT610 card.

I installed the cuda-repo-ubuntu12.04_5.5-0_i386.deb and also the recommended ( by Nvidia ) graphics driver …

and the installations went ok, all paths setip;
The example code compiled and linked with NSight eclipse edition.

BUT the error message: CUDA Driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version at line 53.

How do I cure this?
Both driver and installation were the latest NVIDA issues for my hardware and operating system.

CUDA 5.5 requires a 319.xx or newer driver. 304.88 is too old.

Install a newer driver. If you go to, the currently recommended driver for GT610 is not 304.88 but 346.47
