I have troubles to understand and install the installation process for a specific cuda version that is needed as a dependency for a program that I want to run.
The program demands cuda 8.0 GA 1 (cuda 8.0.44). I try to install it on a ubuntu 16.04.
What I tried so far:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt autoremove -y
- Get the specific .deb file for my system and cuda version and install it with the package manager:
wget http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1604/x86_64/cuda-repo-ubuntu1604_8.0.44-1_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1604_8.0.44-1_amd64.deb
- Now here is where I struggle. On the official download page it tells me to run:
`sudo apt-get update` `sudo apt-get install cuda`
But that installs cuda 9.1.
When I run
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y cuda-8-0
it installs cuda 8.0.61 which is the GA 2 version. But the version I need is cuda 8.0.44.
When I run
sudo apt-get install -y cuda-8-0=8.0.44-1
it still installs cuda 8.0.61.
How can I install the cuda version from the .deb package instead of any other one?
