I tried, a couple of weeks ago, to install the latest nvidia driver (185) in ubuntu 9.04 64bit. It said it couldn’t find an appropriate kernel and would attempt to compile one. After the restart, X wouldn’t start. So i tried a lower version. Eventually the highest version of the driver to work was 180.44. CUDA apps seems to compile and run beautifully, but when I try to do any apps involving CUFFT, there are problems. I looked around and apparently its coz my SDK 2.2 requires a newer driver.
Has anyone managed to install the later drivers on a system like mine? Did you experience the same problems installing as me, or am I doing it wrong?
