It would make me really happy to get CUDA working under andLinux . But so far I’m stuck on the first step: installing the CUDA driver.
I’m running a near-virgin andLinux install (which approximates Ubuntu 7.10), except that I did the not-root-by-default fix suggested in the andLinux wiki. It’s running on top of WinXP 32bit. Hardware includes an 8800GTS G80 640MB.
When I switch to root and run NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.67-pkg1.run , I get
[root@andLinux andLinux]# ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.67-pkg1.run
Verifying archive integrity… OK
Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 177.67……
Received signal SIGSEGV; aborting.
Between the last dot and the SIGSEGV, some other screen flashes briefly, perhaps with a grey strip near the bottom. I’m not sure.
Maybe in a few days I’ll try booting into my non-andLinux partition, which is very similar, and see how that goes. But I’d really like to get it working under andLinux, to lower my barrier to post-work coding.
