No nvidia device | installation problem


I am trying to install the nvidia driver in my hp laptop (ubuntu 8.04). When I run the driver after shutting down X windows. I get the following message in the nvidia log file

The thing is I don’t have an nvidia graphics device on my laptop. I just want to run cuda programs in emulation mode. Is it possible to actually install the driver if there is no nvidia cuda capable graphics device? If so how can i circumvent this problem.


The only reason to install the driver is if you have NVIDIA hardware. HOSTEMU doesn’t use the driver.

Thank you. I was able to run the samples without the driver.
