Cuda cross compilation installation

I have already setup cuda on my arm device ( Tegra K1 ). I am trying to install cuda cross compile on my host machine running ubuntu 14.04. I have added the foreign architecture and downloaded .deb file as well. Now when I try to install cross compile i get following message

ubuntu@ubuntu:/usr$ sudo apt-get install cuda-cross-armhf-6-5

I am new to both ubuntu and cuda. Please guide me with the installation.

Maybe try in the “Embedded Systems” sub-forum next door, that is where the Tegra crowd seems to be hanging out.

Just succeeded at this (after failing a few times, including hitting this issue).

BEFORE you run the .deb file make sure to remove the existing installation of cuda 6.5.
To check for existing installation:
dpkg -l | grep cud To remove the installation sudo apt-get --purge remove cuda-*
sudo apt-get autoremove Then follow the installation instructions. sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_7.5-18_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cuda
This will complain about unmet dependencies. You can resolve those with:
$ sudo apt-get -f install
