Using publicly available drivers

I’m trying to install T10P card on 32bit Linux 2.6.25.14-108.fc9.i686 using the publicly available driver and stable CUDA 2.0 release.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/thankyou_linu…177.67-pkg1.run

The kernel module loads perfectly well, and the driver reports successful installation, but when I am trying to run my code I get the following error message:

NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidiactl (No such file or directory).
Using device 0: Device Emulation (CPU)

This driver did work with 9800 card.

I’ve got no other graphics card, by the way - is that a problem?

Any help would be very much appreciated

The /dev entries don’t exist yet. You must either start X11 on a Nvidia card, or create the entries by hand (see <http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=77054).

HTH.
