CUDA on OpenSolaris x86
 
Hello! I am running OpenSolaris 2009.06 on x86 hardware. I wish to run CUDA on this platform, however I found no information about support from nVidia. Is there going to be such support any time soon? Does there exist some work-around using BSD/Linux drivers?
Regards, Gleb.

I had the same question to put: can we hope for CUDA drivers and SDK
as in Linux ?

any ideas/comments from nvidia about it ?

thanks,
Stefan

I sent an email to the support team, but it seems like they misunderstood something. Seems like they don't know what's it all about. Here's the answer:

Hello Gleb,

Thank you for contacting NVIDIA Customer care.

This is Shailendra, assisting you in troubleshooting the issue you are experiencing.

I understand that you would like to have information regarding driver for OpenSolaris and Linux operating system.

You have submitted your question to a Microsoft Windows support team. We're sorry, but we are not able to address Linux installation, usage and troubleshooting questions here.

For Linux support, please use the Linux Support forum linked here. (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/foru...?s=&forumid=14). You can also find answers to many of the most frequently asked Linux questions in our knowledge base or the text readme file on the driver page. (http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux.html) or (http://nvidia.custhelp.com).

To submit Linux bug reports, please email linux-bugs@nvidia.com or linux-nforce-bugs@nvidia.com please attach an nvidia-bug-report.log, which is generated by running "nvidia-bug-report.sh".

Please let us know if you need any further clarifications.

Regards,
Shailendra
NVIDIA Customer Care

It seems like they redirected the question to Windows support team, even though I sent it to:

ahhh, first level support. waste of effort. we need to send this signed by all solaris/opensolaris
folks directly to Jen-Hsun Huang CEO of nvidia. I hope they might listen. CUDA is a fantastic
technology and with such new successes like, http://code.google.com/p/back40compu...i/RadixSorting
it makes computing something what we never seen before.

Better writing directly to NVIDIA's CEO about support for Solaris systems. We can get other voices from
solarisx86 yahoo group, as well.

Thanks,
Stefan
