I have a Fedora 8, 2.6.23 x86_64 kernel (eventually need to use Xen 2.6.18 Fedora 8) running on an Intel Xeon quadcore and I have installed NVIDIA driver from the site using the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.09-pkg2.run (latest available from nvidia). The graphics card is e-GeForce 8800GTX. I had some previous installations but I manually erased the files I thought could be left over before installing the driver (the driver is supposed to take care of this though). X server started correctly. Then I installed the toolkit using NVIDIA_CUDA_Toolkit_1.1_Fedora7_x86_64.run (couldnt find Fedora 8) as root and NVIDIA_CUDA_SDK_1.1_Linux.run as normal user.
Now compilation of project samples stops in between due to missing -lcuda (which I could not find anywhere on my system). I had read in the earlier posts that the newer drivers were supposed to install it but that doesnt seem to have happened.
That being one problem, now ./deviceQuery returns the following:
[font=“Courier”]There is no device supporting CUDA.

I cannot run any of the examples that have compiled.
I have read the previous posts and tried changing grub menu etc. but nothing seems to help. I ultimately need to install and get this to work in Xen3.2.1 based kernel. So please help me out with a plain kernel so I can move to Xen.
