CUDA compatibility packages ?

The “CUDA 10 Features Revealed” dev blog at https://devblogs.nvidia.com/cuda-10-features-revealed/ mentions that

and

The CUDA 10 cluster installation does include a “compat” package, cuda-compat-10-0-410.48-1.el7.x86_64.rpm, which in turns provides the aforementioned compatibility libraries:

/usr/local/cuda-10.0
/usr/local/cuda-10.0/compat
/usr/local/cuda-10.0/compat/libcuda.so
/usr/local/cuda-10.0/compat/libcuda.so.1
/usr/local/cuda-10.0/compat/libcuda.so.410.48
/usr/local/cuda-10.0/compat/libnvidia-fatbinaryloader.so.410.48
/usr/local/cuda-10.0/compat/libnvidia-ptxjitcompiler.so.1
/usr/local/cuda-10.0/compat/libnvidia-ptxjitcompiler.so.410.48

However, I have not been able to get them to work.
Is there a specific version of the driver that they support ?
Is there any documentation on how to use them ?

Yes, they will only work with an underlying R384 driver install. They will not (currently, as of this CUDA 10.0 release) work with an underlying R387, R390, or other driver that you might be using with CUDA 9.x

The documentation is here:

https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-c-best-practices-guide/index.html#flexible-upgrade-path

and it is also briefly mentioned in the release notes.

Hi Robert,
thank you very much, indeed I missed the “R384” in the fine print :-)

Thank you,
.Andrea

Hi Pramod,
thank you for the link.
