I tried to install cuda 5.0 on Linux Mint 13. I did the following:
Add the following lines to the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
Remove whatever nvidia drivers are present on your system.
sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*
Shut down the X-server in Linux Mint
sudo service mdm stop
And now run the install script,
The problem is:
The x-server doesn’t work after the installation and restart of the computer. The error message tells me that the nvidia kernel module version is 295.40 and the installed driver version is 304.54.
Indeed, a check reveals, that a nouveau module is still installed (I think that causes the problem):
sudo modprobe -l | grep nouveau
How can I update the kernel module to version 304.54 to run cuda 5.0?
