cuda 7.5 vs gcc 6.1

Just installed cuda 7.5 on my fedora 24 which comes only with gcc 6.1 (no gcc-4.9). What do I do now?
I mean, any idea when gcc 6.1 will be supported?


The supported environments for CUDA 7.5 are listed in the linux install guide for CUDA 7.5. It’s unlikely that it would ever be updated to officially support gcc 6. Newer versions of CUDA should support newer version of gcc, but I can’t say when gcc6 will be supported. Right now CUDA 8.0RC supports up to gcc 5.3.x

That’s unfortunate. Thanks for the quick answer!
