Trouble installing legacy CUDA SDK 5.5

I am trying to install an older version of the CUDA SDK v5.5 on RedHat Linux 6. This had been successfully installed on a similar system many years ago. However, the installation fails in locating a number of subsidiary files. I’m no Linux expert but these files appear to be 32-bit version of the libraries. This system is a 64-bit system and the applications we run are solely 64-bit.

I’ve looked on the CUDA repository and there do appear to be i686 versions of these libraries. I’ve tried installing them manually but the installation package still complains in a similar fashion.

The installation log follows:

Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Installing an older toolkit from packages this way will probably be troublesome. I would suggest installing using the runfile installers that are available from the legacy toolkits page:

https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-toolkit-archive

And you will probably want to start with a clean load of the OS, as the above session may well have left some problems behind.

That worked! Thank you very much!
