    Cool NVIDIA Quadro 140 NVS & CUDA.

    Good evening folks!
    In some of my computers are NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M/PCI/SSE2 cards installed. Operating system is... OpenSuse.

    Now here's the question: How is it possible to enable CUDA for those cards?

    Well, it seems the standard nvidia driver installs two CUDA libraries and
    some header files:

    ***
    http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...hapter-05.html

    Chapter 5. Listing of Installed Components

    - Two CUDA libraries (/usr/lib/libcuda.so.x.y.z, /usr/lib/libcuda.la); these
    libraries provide runtime support for CUDA (high-performance computing on
    the GPU) applications

    - CUDA header files (/usr/include/cuda/cuda.h, /usr/include/cuda/cudaGL.h);
    these files are necessary for building CUDA applications.
    ***

    Also, you have some toolkits and sdk samples available from here:

    Thanks for the links, Camalen!
    Right now the mentioned cards use the display driver version 3.0.0 NVIDIA 185.18.14. Looks like a switch to the newest should do the job...
    Do you know if uninstalling of NVIDIA 185.18.14 is recommeneded are those drivers entirely different?

    I'm also interested O:-)

    As per the above link, the latest stable CUDA driver version is the one you
    have already installed:

    ***
    CUDA 2.2
    CUDA Driver: NVIDIA Driver for Linux (SUSE 11.1) 185.18.14
    ***

    CUDA 2.3 (NVIDIA Driver 190.18) is Beta.

    What I don't know is the difference (if any) between the CUDA driver and the
    standard nvidia driver. I think they are the same but dunno for sure :-?

    That's exactly what I want to find out. For everyone who reads this: is it necessary/recommended to uninstall NVIDIA Driver 185.18.14 in order to install version 2.3 of the NVIDIA CUDA Driver (190.18)?

    Definitely recommended to uninstall the old driver. BTW, are you going to be using the CUDA drivers for a BOINC project ?

    Uninstalled driver 185.18.14 and installed NVIDIA CUDA 190.18 - which works like a charm. Only discomfort will probably be to have to recompile the driver after each kernel update/upgrade.
    Using my power for BOINC might be worth thinking about... but is the Toolkit of need when currently only using the driver?

    Another question is: What exactly are the improvements compared to the last version of the driver? As for me, I couldn't find any so far...

    Not any real improvements, just that BOINC software will run faster as it will be using your GPU instead of your cpu Use your NVIDIA GPU for scientific computing

    Hey, are you trying to advertise this? I'd say YOU are already participating. I'll think about it...
