Today I installed an ubuntu package with “Driver Version: 302.17”.
I compared its release number with that for the driver that can be downloaded from where the cuda 5.0 prelease can be downloaded (old site).
Aha! 302.17 > 302.06.03, so its time to switch to cuda 5.0, I thought.
I installed the samples, compiled, ran.
Alas!, this ubuntu driver reports it is version 4.2!
./deviceQueryDrv [deviceQueryDrv] starting... CUDA Device Query (Driver API) statically linked version There is 1 device supporting CUDA Device 0: "GeForce GTX 480" CUDA Driver Version: 4.2
Do I need to “downgrade” to 302.06.03 to run cuda 5.0 prelease?
How to learn which driver is sufficient for cuda 5.0?
