Unable to use opencv's gpu calls

After a fresh install of jetpack on my tk1 board I found myself unable to use opencv’s gpu calls. I’m using opencv 2.4.12

OpenCV Error: Gpu API call (CUDA driver version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version) in copy, file /hdd/buildbot/slave_jetson_tx_2/35-O4T-L4T-Jetson-L/opencv/modules/dynamicuda/include/opencv2/dynamicuda/dynamicuda.hpp, line 877

NOTE: I installed cuda 7.0 before and without installing it I simply installed the deb file with the 6.5. The nvcc -V shows I’m using 6.5 but could it possibly still be using the 7.0?

Here is what I’m trying to compile

#include <iostream>
#include "opencv2/opencv.hpp"
#include "opencv2/gpu/gpu.hpp"

int main (int argc, char* argv[])
        cv::Mat src_host = cv::imread("file.png", CV_LOAD_IMAGE_GRAYSCALE);
        cv::gpu::GpuMat dst, src;

        cv::gpu::threshold(src, dst, 128.0, 255.0, CV_THRESH_BINARY);

        cv::Mat result_host(dst);
        cv::imshow("Result", result_host);
    catch(const cv::Exception& ex)
        std::cout << "Error: " << ex.what() << std::endl;
    return 0;

Anything newer than 6.5 won’t work. I do not know about the above code, but if you tried 7.0 and backed out to 6.5 there’s a lot of things that could go wrong with old packages. I’d actually suggest you clone the root partition as a backup and then re-flash. Clone info here:
