Default Re: Understanding & getting started with CUDA for Linux

Solved it! Thanks!!!

It was RAM exhaustion. You see, I am using a 32bit kernel (3.0.4) with 4GB of RAM. The vmalloc was around 128MB (as provided by cat /proc/meminfo ==> VmallocTotal: 122560 kB)

Now its set for 256MB and passed automatically to the kernel witrh LILO.

The driver successfully boots both GPU's and X starts. The deviceQuery now works.

I conclude the standard nvidia driver is not meant for CUDA computations and thats probably why the devices were not detected by the deviceQuery script.

Unless I am wrong, I think that I am ready to start using CUDA.

Thanks for the help everybody!
