Dell Latitude D830 with NVS140M

CUDA don’t work on a Dell Latitude D830 with NVS 140M graphics card.

The system is Fedora 8 with Nvidia driver 169.04 from Livna

$ PATH=$PATH:/opt/cuda/bin LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/cuda/lib ./deviceQuery 

There is no device supporting CUDA.

NVS 140M is normally supported by CUDA 1.1, then, what should I do to have my graphics card able to work with CUDA?

Please note that Fedora 8 is not qualified for use with CUDA.

Does this problem reproduce with the official NVIDIA driver package, rather than Livna’s?

Also, please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.


I would guess that the package failed to install the libcuda library and header files. I got the same behavior on my system until I modified the gentoo package I had version bumped to install the libraries.

I have a feeling that this is going to come up again and again with as all the various package managers do a “version bump” and fail to notice the cuda libraries. Perhaps it would make a good FAQ entry?

With the official NVIDIA driver package, that works :) thanks

Please report this bug to Livna.
