prescanArray compile time error error: `prescan__entry' was not declared in this scope

[font=“Arial”]As mentioned in the topic, I am getting a compile-time error by nvcc on the scanLargeArray project of the NVIDIA SDK 2.3

which I have been unable to track down. I am using the NVIDIA Toolkit 2.3 on Fedora 11, properly setup to use gcc34/g++34

wherever necessary . scanLargeArray is the only project which fails to build, and the error doesn’t help me to find the fault :

CUDA_DEPS and #include in the Makefile and *.cu files of the project appear to be in proper order. I should also note that

this irrespective of 32/64bit architectures, as I tried in both platforms (Fedora11, properly configured).

I believe the error lies in the way the templated function “precan” ( template <bool storeSum, bool isNP2>global void prescan )

in the scanLargeArray_kernel.cu file is handled by the compiler. I hope the compiler errors below will be familiar to someone

who will help me find the bug/misconfiguration :

Further questions :

Are nvcc templates full-blown C++ templates ?

What kind of types can I have as template T types - C primitives, right ?

Where can I find more information about nvcc templates (something more solid than looking at the SDK) ?[/font]

[font=“Arial Narrow”]PS> This is my first post, so I should not be rude: hi everyone![/font]

I’m getting similar problems when trying to compile the SDK.

Using:

version 2.3 (common.mk patched via http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23602 to resolve gcc44 ==> gcc34 issue)

I will post back if I find a solution.

I also met this problem.
