Difficulty installing CUDA on MacBook Pro, 8600M GT 256MB

Hi, I’d like to enable CUDA on my MacBook Pro. I’ve installed both .PKG files as well as creating and modifying a .bash_profile file in my home folder. Executing the ‘make’ command in ~/Developer/CUDA works fine and exhibits no error. However, when I execute ‘deviceQuery’ located in /Developer/CUDA/bin/darwin/release, I receive this:

CUDA Device Query (Runtime API) version (CUDART static linking)

There is no device supporting CUDA.

Device 0: "Device Emulation (CPU)"

  CUDA Capability Major revision number:		 9999

I’d like to find out why I get the ‘no device supporting CUDA’ error. The test passes fine, though–I feel like I’m pretty close to CUDA working correctly on my computer! Could anyone please help? Thank you!

Reinstall, when you can click customize during the installation do so, and make sure CUDA.kext is selected.

Oh… That was simple. Thanks for the response.

This seems like such a common problem. I’m curious why this option isn’t enabled from the start.

“CUDAKext – Allows CUDA to run on your system.” Sounds pretty important to me!
