I have the GeForce 9600 which I got to try out CUDA. I installed the nvidia driver and got it installed successfully ( I think) And then I downloaded the cudadriver_2.3_linux_32_190.18.run. When I do a
sudo sh cudadriver_2.3_linux_32_190.18.run ,
I get an error saying I am running an xwindow and that s why the installation failed. it says “please exit xwindows”…
Now I am wondering even if nvidia is enabled on the system. so then i run
nvidia-settings --query all and this is the output I get.
Xlib: extension “GLX” missing on display “:0.0”.
ERROR: Error while querying attribute ‘GLXServerVersion’ on Durga:0.0 (Missing Extension).
ERROR: Error while querying attribute ‘GLXClientVersion’ on Durga:0.0 (Missing Extension).
ERROR: Error while querying attribute ‘OpenGLVersion’ on Durga:0.0 (Missing Extension).
What am I doing wrong? Is Nvidia even installed here? I need some guidance here. I have tried to obtain information regarding this but came up unsuccessful or maybe I am looking the wrong places.
