I’m hoping someone can help me out with this… My goal is to get the CUDA environment running on my GTX275 in OpenSuse Linux 64-bit 11.2. Now, my understanding is that the CUDA card required to do CUDA development cannot be also used as the display card–correct? My motherboard has GeForce 9300 built-in, so I could use that for the X server GUI display, and the GTX 275 as the CUDA number cruncher if necessary.
How would I go about getting this set up correctly?
I downloaded the 64-bit Linux driver (version 190.53, I believe it is), but after running the .run file, my X server is gone–in other words, the login prompt comes up in text mode now. I tried to start the X server with xstart, but I get a ‘no screens detected’ error message. Does the driver work okay with OpenSuse 11.1, as opposed to 11.2? How can I get the GUI set up properly and also do CUDA development?
Thanks for any help with this.
