Is CUDA 5.5 supposed to refuse to install when using GCC 4.7.3 (linux 64bit)?
The installer reports the following:
Unsupported compiler: 4.7.3
= Summary =
Driver: Not Selected
Toolkit: Installation Failed. Using unsupported Compiler.
Samples: Not Selected
When i extract the individual installers with ./cuda_5.5.22_linux_64.run --extract=~/cuda/
and then install the toolkit with ~/cuda/cuda-linux64-rel-5.5.22-16488124.run -prefix=/opt/cuda it seems to install correctly.
Looking at the installed /opt/cuda/include/host_config.h i think it should support GCC 4.7.3:
#if GNUC > 4 || (GNUC == 4 && GNUC_MINOR > 8)
#error – unsupported GNU version! gcc 4.9 and up are not supported!
#endif /* GNUC> 4 || (GNUC == 4 && GNUC_MINOR > 8) */
#endif /* GNUC */
So is this an error in the linux installer?
