FYI: CUDA 2.3 can be built on Fedora 11

  • install compat-gcc-34*** packages

Be careful of one thing, make clean does not libparamgl.a and librendercheckgl.a

because they may be built ready in gcc 4.4, and not removed in make clean, later it will bring confusion to building on gcc34

any problems, i may support.


Hello highman,

I’m installing cuda 2.3 on Fedora 11, with a geforce 8800gtx card. I was having prior issues with gcc 4.4, so I installed compat-gcc-34*** packages. I ran make clean, then make and here are the last few lines of my new output. I am fairly new to linux, so any help/advice is greatly appreciated.


[codebox]make -C src/fluidsGL/

make[1]: Entering directory `/root/NVIDIA_GPU_Computing_SDK/C/src/fluidsGL’

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXi

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/NVIDIA_GPU_Computing_SDK/C/src/fluidsGL’

make: *** [src/fluidsGL/Makefile.ph_build] Error 2


Ok I figured it out ^_^ I just needed to install the libxi (dev) and libxmu (dev) libraries.
