How to install Cuda Toolkil 7.0 on Debian 8 (Jessie)? Ubuntu installers did not work

How to install Cuda Toolkit 7.0 on Debian 8?

I know that Debian 8 comes with the option to download and install Cuda Toolkit 6.0 using apt-get install nvidia-cuda-toolkit, but how do you do this for Cuda toolkit 7.0?

I tried installing Ubuntu installers using the below method:

sudo wget
dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_7.0-28_amd64.deb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y cuda

However it did not work and the following message was returned:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 cuda : Depends: cuda-7-0 (= 7.0-28) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

You can download one of the Ubuntu-runfiles (Personally I had the one for Ubuntu 12.04)

Then you do following (su-privileges required)

# sh

and follow the instructions…

I hope that was useful! :)

Hi @daveshillings, may I ask if you had any luck installing Cuda Toolkit 7.0 on Debian eventually? Did @B-Kacz’s answer help you?
