View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.04 + GTS-250 = no CUDA for BOINC

February 12th, 2010, 06:41 AM
I put a GTS 250 in the latest hardy (8.04) and installed that 190.53 from nvidia.

The nvidia settings work, display looks great, etc. All seems to be working and I see the cuda libs where they are supposed to be but boinc 6.10.17 x64 can find no gpu.

I am guessing the card is too new for 8.04 and I edited nv.pci and put in the 0x615 id for gt-250 and reinstalled but that didnt help with the "no GPUs".

I would like to know if anyone has the gts 250 (or any of the newer nvidia cards) working with 8.04 on BOINC. I am not doing SDK, only BOINC.

Do I need to upgrade from 8.04 to 9.1? Will the ALT-CD allow me incremental upgrades? I assume a clean install of 9.1 will erase any apps I have such as posgresql.

thanks for looking
