  1. #1

    Default Nvidia GTX 260m Cuda 1gb M7 support

    When will OpenSuse 11.2 Support the Nvidia Geforce GTX260M Cuda 1gb video card in my asus g71gx-rx05 from best buy. The install procedure for 11.1 will not work with 11.2 m6.

    Hi
    Probably gcc44, try using gcc43 instead.
    Code:
    sudo zypper in gcc43 gcc43-c++ libstdc++43 libstdc++43-devel
    export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.3
    export CXX=/usr/bin/g++-4.3
    sh cudadriver_2.3_linux_(your_arch)_190.18.run

    This is partly no openSUSE problem, it's NVIDIA that only has delivered beta drivers for these newer cards.

    In openSUSE's Software Installer, make sure the PATTERN Linux Kernel Development is installed. After that:

    Get the latest beta driver 190.32 from here:

    32bit : ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86
    64bit : ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64

    and install 'the hard way'

    Hi
    The op is talking about the cuda driver not the normal proprietary
    driver

    I'm running the cuda driver here, off loads processing to the GPU for
    seti crunching in my case.
