Debian 9 trying to compile xmr-stak I need cuda 8 gtx 550 card

Depends: cuda-8-0 (>= 8.0.61) but it is not going to be installed

i am stuck I have tried the run file I spent way to much time with version 9 to find out my card is too old and that I need to use version 8 so i have been trying this.

i started with the version 9 run file I ran it and found the only way to install it was to accept yes and install drivers for video then no to everything
then run again and no to drivers then yes to everything . But I get failed
and the logs do not seem to give much info or I am looking in the wrong place.

apt-get install cuda=8.0.61-1

i attempted to install with the deb local

uname -r

I know this is not the place but for reference my error was when I got to the %70 mark and it stopped on this error. but this was with cuda v9 and after trying all sorts of tries I researched out and found I need to be run v8 due to my older card

note I also attempted to uninstall the run versions of everything I ran 9 and 8 and the upgrade patch
using the

./cuda_8.0.61_375.26_linux-run --uninstall -silent

./cuda_8.0.61.2_linux-run --uninstall -silent

./cuda_9.1.85_387.26_linux --uninstall -silent

but before I did this I did rm -r /usr/local/cuda-8.0 and the syboliclink of /usr/local/cuda and the v9 dir also

not sure if that messed anything up. I am reading the looks like I might have to install again and run these uninstall files.

when i ran 8 I did not del or remove 9 first. I might have files where they should not be. but when I tried to compile stak it was telling me the directory /usr/local/cuda-8.0 did not have a version.txt file.

If you started with a runfile install (any runfile) then you’re not going to be easily able to switch to .deb (package manager) install.

Read the linux install guide.
If possible, start over with a clean install of the OS, then install CUDA 8.

Otherwise follow the instructions in the linux install guide to “handle conflicting install methods” and do all the steps needed to clean out your old runfile install and your old package manager install.

You should never just switch from runfile install to package manager install or vice versa, without doing a full cleanup.

And BTW Debian 9 is not a supported configuration for CUDA.

I will reload and try again.

I am hoping I can get it to run in debian 9. i like everything to be netinstalled (bare minimum) easier to maintain something you know what ever package is.
