Just got a new 285GTX MAC edition today. I have a June 2008 MAC Pro, running 10.5.7 and
boussinesq:~ johnston$ gcc -ver i686-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.0.1: no input files
The CUDA SDK examples do not see the card!
This is what I did
installed the driver from the cd and powered off the machine
removed original 8800GT card and installed the 285GTX in the same slot, along with the
two power cables. Closed her up and rebooted.
Under “About this Mac”, the 285gtx info correctly appears under “Graphics/Displays”
NOTE - CUDA worked on the 8800GT!
Downloaded and installed version 2.2 of SDK and Toolkit
Went to /Developer/CUDA and typed “make”, which failed on imageDenoising example - reported
duplicate entries in a library (I did not save the exact message)
Found a post on this forum about this and then - reinstalled XCODE from Disc 2 that shipped with the
MAC. Reinstalled the CUDA SDK and Toolkit.
went to /Developer/CUDA and type “make” - SUCCESS this time (although numerous warnings appear!)
- when I try to run deviceQuery I get
boussinesq:release johnston$ ./deviceQuery
CUDA Device Query (Runtime API) version (CUDART static linking)
There is no device supporting CUDA.

Other programs - scan, eigenvalues - when run report
cudaSafeCall() Runtime API error in file <scan.cu>, line 118 : no CUDA-capable device is available. (scan)
cudaSafeCall() Runtime API error in file <main.cu>, line 124 : no CUDA-capable device is available. (eigenvalue)
Went to Nvidia site and noted a NEW DRIVER dated 6/12/09 which had to be a different version than on the
disc that came with the card. Installed new driver, BUT STILL have the same problems - device not found.
To be safe, I copied /Developer/CUDA to my Desktop, remade the SDK and again, same problem. I just
wanted to be sure it was not a permissions thing with the codes being in /Developer/CUDA
Any ideas? I assume that the monitor can be connected to the card; I never had a problem with the 8800GT
with a monitor attached - which BTW is attached to DVI port #1 on the 285gtx.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
