I have installed the Nvidia Cuda Tool kit 5.5 and Samples codes in Ubuntu 13.1. I can compile .cu files and magmablas library for example.
I have an ASUS S550CB system with both an Nvidia GEForce 740MB graphic card and an Intel graphic card.
I would like to use the card to compute and not just compile Cuda code. Something that can be done in Windows even though we are forced to use Visual Studio which I find awkward and not flexible within this environment.
When I tried to install the deb package via apt-get command line in Ubuntu 13.1, it modified my settings. I was getting black screen and I was not able to log back in. My X server settings was corrupted and I was not able to turn the X-server back on. I had to re-install Ubuntu 13.1!
Is it possible to install the Nvidia Driver (and not just the CudaToolKit) without corrupting the X-server settings and getting black screen so that I can compile and run Cuda code?
