Cuda Installation and Verification on Fedora 13

Hello,

I am trying to install CUDA on a machine running Fedora 13. The machine currently has 4 individual Nvidia Tesla C1060 cards installed.

I have followed the steps from this website http://www.r-tutor.com/gpu-computing/cuda-installation/cuda3.2-fc13 (except I installed the updated 4.0 versions).

I used these files:

gpucomputingsdk_4.0.17_linux.run
devdriver_4.0_linux_64_270.41.19.run
cudatoolkit_4.0.17_linux_64_fedora13.run

To my knowledge I followed the guide correctly, however at the end when I run deviceQuery I get…

CUDA Device Query (Runtime API) version (CUDART static linking)

cudaGetDeviceCount returned 38
-> no CUDA-capable device is detected
[deviceQuery] test results…
FAILED

Press ENTER to exit…

I am not sure what I did wrong. I installed the devdriver as root user and turned off the x server (also I installed Fedora 13 with basic graphics). I then installed the cuda toolkit and sdk with no problems.

I have did some reading and noticed many people suggesting running nvidia-xconfig. However, when I do that I do not get a display.

Any tips will be appreciated. It is to be said that I am new to linux.

Thanks,

Truxal

Also, is Fedora 13 the best choice for CUDA?
