cuda-gdb error

I have installed CUDA 4.1 on a RHEL 5.5 Linux workstation.

nvcc works fine, but cuda-gdb fails.

I see the following error:

$ cuda-gdb hello

'import site' failed; use -v for traceback

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "<string>", line 32, in ?

ImportError: No module named os.path

NVIDIA (R) CUDA Debugger

4.1 release

I have used

nvcc -g -G -pg -D_DEBUG hello_gpu.cu -o hello

to generate the executable.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

PS: cuda-gdb was working fine with the previous version (CUDA 4.0)

Any suggestions ??

There is not enough information posted to make a diagnosis. I checked with the debugger team and they would need at least the following additonal information / data:

(1) Host GCC version (gcc –v)
(2) System/kernel info (uname –a)
(3) The binary for the test program (files can be attached to forum posts)
(4) Does starting cuda-gdb without any arguments result in the same behavior?

The debugger team further notes:

The messages:

o ‘import site’ failed; use -v for traceback

o Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 32, in ?
ImportError: No module named os.path

are messages associated with Python.

In CUDA 4.1, cuda-gdb is based on gdb version 7.2, which now uses Python.

Could you check to see if python is installed on your system, and if so, which version is installed?

I see the same error with CUDA 4.2

Here’s what you asked for:

$ gcc -v

Any suggestions on how to fix this??

attaching the binary as per njuffa’s post

Hi,

i execute your hello sample on the CUDA SDK 5.0 cuda-gdb with following result

upps have you the sample compile with the right compile options ?,

or maybe send me your sample source to bernasek@lycos.com i test it under my environment

and inform you, ok ?
