    Question Nvidia Profiler replacing Nvidia Cuda Toolkit for Ubuntu 14.04?

    The following terminal feedback I obtained it while running a "test" of Ubuntu 14.04 from a USB driver. Prior to attempting to install Cuda I successfully switched to the Nvidia 331 driver.

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-cuda-toolkit
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package nvidia-cuda-toolkit is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    nvidia-profiler


    E: Package 'nvidia-cuda-toolkit' has no installation candidate
    Can anyone confirm if indeed I should be installing the Nvidia Profiler instead?

    Hey 23dornot23d!
    Glad you asked. "trusty-desktop-amd64" is the ISO file name.
    I'll have to load the USB drive with the Ubuntu trusty to try your commands. I'll get back later or tomorrow.

    Ok 64 bit is ok ........ that is what I used the other day ...... the commands will confirm that ......
    and also tell us which kernel is running ( just so we know .... )

    The only other thing then is to check we have the same sources.list

    Will put mine here ...... the only thing I have done to it was to change it to a uk server for speed ......

    but its in /etc/apt/sources.list

    if you spot any differences between your own and mine let me know what they are please or post your own and
    I will have a look through.

    Now, about creating that Sources list, I have no idea how you made it. How am I to create it?

    Re: Nvidia Profiler replacing Nvidia Cuda Toolkit for Ubuntu 14.04?

    Today I tried to install the Nvidia Profiler into the Livedrive with Ubuntu 14.04. But I got the following errors:

    dpkg: error processing package rarian-compat (--configure):
    dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    docbook-xml
    rarian-compat
    Nvidia Profiler failed, see below feedback from terminal:
    E: docbook-xml: package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should reinstall it before attempting configuration
    E: rarian-compat: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured


    Package docbook-xml is not configured yet.


    dpkg: error processing package rarian-compat (--configure):
    dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Setting up nvidia-profiler (5.0.35-7ubuntu1) ...
    No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure.
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    A package failed to install. Trying to recover:
    dpkg: error processing package docbook-xml (--configure):
    package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should
    reinstall it before attempting configuration
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of rarian-compat:
    rarian-compat depends on docbook-xml; however:
    Package docbook-xml is not configured yet.
    It seems it's not compatible with Trusty, is this right?

    Btw, I also attempted to install Nvidia Nsight, but I also got some errors:

    Nvidia nsight failed, see below feedback from terminal:
    Processing triggers for ca-certificates (20130906ubuntu2) ...
    Updating certificates in /etc/ssl/certs... 0 added, 0 removed; done.

    done.
    done.

    E: docbook-xml: package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should reinstall it before attempting configuration
    E: rarian-compat: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Only compatible with rarian maybe?

    Aside of this, I did manage to install Blender 2.70 in Trusty. But Cuda is not showing in the User Prefs yet

    Re: Nvidia Profiler replacing Nvidia Cuda Toolkit for Ubuntu 14.04?

    Have you done this since installing it .........

    sudo apt-get update

    maybe the package lists are not uptodate yet ........



    or go into synaptic package manager and have a look for the cuda files as that updates as you go into it

    see if the nvidia-cuda-toolkit is showing in the search ..........

    I got everything running and its doing nicely now ........ have done my first animation with it .......



    Got to do something with the eyes though and the beak
