I just transitioned from Fedora 16 to Linux Mint since Fedora 16 seems essentially unsupported at this point. However, I’m a newcomer to Mint, having just installed it yesterday.
I understand that Linux Mint is binary compatible with Ubuntu, so I expect that one of the CUDA 5.5 downloads targeting the Ubuntu distribution should work, but I would like to know which of the eleven choices to pick?
I see that several people on this forum are asking more advanced questions about using Mint with CUDA, so there must be people that have already moved past this point and can offer some basic installation advice on how to proceed. I would appreciate some guidance, since I found installing the packages on Fedora was challenging previously.
