Segmentation faults when runing cuda sdk examples


I’ve just installed the cuda toolkit and the sdk and sucefully compiled the sdk examples on a Debian 5.0.2 with a Geforce 8600 GT. But when runing, I get segmentations faults. Here’s an example

me@pc:~/NVIDIA_GPU_Computing_SDK/C/bin/linux/release$ ./particles

[CUDA Particles Simulation]

grid: 64 x 64 x 64 = 262144 cells

particles: 32768

Segmentation fault

I have no clue on where to start.

Thank you

I’ve exactly the same problem, all the SDK examples are returning segmentation fault.
I have no clue, but I install SDK and nvcc as user on my home…

Thanks !

Somebody plz answer…

I had the same problem. For me it was because the installed driver and the CUDA version were slightly incompatible. Maybe installing the developer driver and the corresponding toolkit+sdk from the nVidia site might help.

I don’t know why, but I think it must have some relations with the NVIDIA driver version. I have tried my best to recompile the CUDA 2.3 in my GPU cluster, but it doesn’t work for me, and I check the results of deviceQuery and find that it cannot find CUDA device. So, I get the same results with you all.
