I am trying to install NVIDIA DIGITS on my old desktop PC running a GeForce GTX 260 graphics card. In order for me to run DIGITS, I need CUDA Toolkit. I have been having many issues when trying to install toolkit though. Because my GPU is so old, I attempted installing CUDA 6.5 as my NVIDIA driver version is 340.104. I tried the .deb file, but got stuck in a login loop. so I rebooted and tried to install the .run file, but I get an error like this:
“The driver installation is unable to locate the kernel source. Please make sure that the kernel source packages are installed and set up correctly”
I used [uname -r] and that spits out “4.4.8-101-generic”
I also tried installing the .run file without installing the drivers in the CUDA package and get an error like this:
“Installation failed. Using unsupported compiler.”
I used [gcc --version] and it spits out 4.8.4.
I am not sure what is wrong. Am I able to use digits with such an old version of CUDA toolkit? Please help me install CUDA on my desktop.
