Uninstall CUDA - SnowLeopard in order to proceed with a clean installation


I have already installed CUDA on my MacBookPro5,3.
However, I have encountered problems while compiling the SDK examples.
The tips on the previous posts were not helpful in my case, so I would like to know how I can proceed with a new clean installation.

Any hints on how to remove completely CUDA from my system?

I installed the 2.3.1a, when I ask for “nvcc --version” this is the result: Cuda compilation tools, release 2.3, V0.2.1221

Thank you for your help!


I also have been having problems with the compilation of the SDK and the examples on Snow Leopard. Maolimu’s series of fixes (http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=105940) were extremely helpful (Thank you, maolimu!) but I still had all sorts of compilation problems. In the end, rather than compiling using a simple make, or using “make clean; make” I used “maker clobber; make” and finally it worked. I suggest you give this a try.

“make clobber” is rather extreme and means “complete cleanup of all unnecessary files and directories produced by previous invocations of the make command”.

Good luck.


Oh Yeah!!!

Thank you wfb (and of course, thank you Maolimu!!!).
Actually, after clobbering, the compilation of the SDK examples worked as a charm!

Again, Thank you!!!
