This is the second time I am installing CUDA in Ubuntu. First time went fine but this time after a fresh Ubuntu install.
CUDA installed fine. But I am getting errors while making the CUDA samples, After installing some library, the make finshed although with some warning.
Now when I try to run a file, I get the following error: cutilCheckMsg() CUTIL CUDA error: cudaMalloc failed in file <fluidsGL_kernels.cu>, line 49 : invalid argument.
another one: ./histogram64
…allocating CPU memory.
…generating input data
…allocating GPU memory and copying input data
Running GPU histogram (1 iterations)…
cutilCheckMsg() CUTIL CUDA error: histogram64Kernel() execution failed
in file <histogram64_kernel.cuh>, line 235 : invalid device function .
Actually it was a driver problem. I tried installing 180.xx driver but my Ubuntu wouldnt like it for strange reason. And seems I have installed the 2.1 CUDA packages which are not supported by 177.xx driver.
I downgraded to 2.0x and now seems fine. Thank you a lot.
