Installing CUDA with Ubuntu 9.10/GTS 250/Integrade Video Out

I have a GTS 250 installed in a PCIe x16 slot. To maximize computation performance I am running my video out from the onboard video. I am very new to CUDA so I’m having trouble getting everything started. I am running Ubuntu 9.10 and I’ve downloaded the following install files:

I installed cuda… and gpu… without any trouble at all (though I haven’t accessing them in any way). I finally found a way to kill the X server so that I can install devdriver, but when I run it, I get the following message:

WARNING: You do not appear to have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the 195.36.15 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver installed on this system…

After I press okay it still offers me the license agreement, and I accept.

It then attempts “Building Kernel _______” (didn’t look up quick enough)

Then I get the error:

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module ‘nvidia.ko’. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics devices, or NVIDIA GPU installed in this system is not supported by this NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release."

I am also directed to see the log entires “Kernel module load error’ and “Kernel messages” at the end of /var/log/nvidia-installer.log”. I can post this log file if anyone feels it will help.

Can anyone help explain this download to me? For reference I am also not an experienced Ubuntu user, but am relatively familiar with the terminal from Mac OS X.

TL/DR: Can’t install necessary CUDA tools in Ubuntu 9.10. Have a GTS 250 and run video out of the onboard graphics. Anyone have a good walkthrough?

What motherboard is this?

An Asus P7H55-M Pro

I don’t believe you can use both the on-board GPU (should be on CPU in this case I guess) and a PCI-e GPU at the same time with that board (in fact with any board using Intel graphics). You will probably have to switch the built-in GPU off in the BIOS to use the GTS 250.

So even though I’m not looking to use the GTS250 for video processing and only for CUDA there isn’t any way? That’s going to be a real foul up on my part for my machine build.

You can ask the manufacturer of the board or the chipset, but I believe the answer is no. The chipset isn’t designed for both a VGA card in the PCI-e slot and the internal VGA to be active at the same time. Whether the VGA card is being used for a display or not, it is still a VGA card and there are hardware and BIOS limitations which exclude having both the internal device and an external device on the PCI-e bus at the same time.

Will do. Thanks for all the help.
