reinstall cuda 2.0 on ubuntu 8.04

hello all!

after updating my system the cuda sdk examples don’t work anymore. after restarting my computer it entered low graphics mode, so i entered recovery mode which broght me back to the initial settings. but when i try to run make in the cuda sdk directory, i get “Error 2”, after that if i try to compile one of the examples i get the following error:
“error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”

i don’t know if i should reinstall cuda or try to resolve the error. thanks in advance!!

What update? Kernel?
I could be wrong, but I had the issue with X server and drivers etc. on hardy
To see what’s wrong with your X configuration, you could do this:
Logout from your xwindows session
Ctrl+Alt+F1, log in aand stop the x server with sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop (start starts the xserver)
start x with the command X and press enter
If the X fail, you’ll get the error messages and then see what is going wrong. If everything works as expected, you’ll get the cross pointer and default X background (simply switch back to the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1) and press Ctrl+c to end X session)
If you’ve upgraded the kernel, my guess is that you’ll have to reinstall the drivers, since the drivers are compiled against the current kernel version.
hope it’ll help a bit with your problem
best regards,


i did as you said, i started the x, i got the grey background, and after switching back to the terminal, i got 2 errors

(EE) Failed to load /usr/loib/xorg/modules/extensions/

(EE) Failed to load module “glx”(loader failed, 7)

do you have any idea what this means?

i installed the 173.14.12 nvidia driver with envy, because my gt 9600 doesn’t have a binary driver provided. should i reinstall cuda or try to resolve the error?

thanks anyway for your reply,


sorry, I woudn’t know how to resolve this issue. did you try to reinstall the drivers?
please, if someone with enough experience reads this, please jump in :)
Maybe this would be worth a look
sorry, best I can do
best regards,
