What's new in CUDA 2.1?

You mean you didn’t install SP1, or you’re compiling in vs2005?

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your concern.

I accidentally typed “not” instead of “now” there. I just edited my original post.

Also, to give more information, I am using templates just as Mark Harris used them in the SDK parallel reduction example.

This failure to compile is pretty frustrating given that previously I was about 95% of the way to open-source releasing my program (in time for imminent grad school application deadlines), so I would really appreciate any help.

I have a sense that this can be solved by some simple little tweak.


Obviuos question: does 2.1 + VS2005 work?

Nope, vs2005sp1 compilation stopped working once I installed the new driver and 2.1 toolkit.

Also, I just reinstalled the previous drivers and cuda 2.0 and again it works.


Based on your advice, I purchased GeForce 6200 and tried to install 180.60.

I received the following message during installation: “The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware”. External Image

It should be pointed out that this is the preferred way of loading kernels in the Driver API. Loading cubins, ie raw machine code, is not safe and may break with future chip architectures.

I installed the latest beta for linux - 180.11 from here: [url=“http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=122606”]http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=122606[/url]

It seems to support CUDA 2.1 and I’ve not experience the problems I had with the 180.06 driver. The latter seemed to have had some memory leaks, if I understood the issue correctly.
