Whether the repository is available online or installed locally, the installation procedure is identical and made of several steps.package installs all the available packages for native developments.This is the version of the kernel headers and development packages that must be installed prior to installing the CUDA Drivers.This command will be used multiple times below to specify the version of the packages to install.Note that below are the common-case scenarios for kernel usage.More advanced cases, such as custom kernel branches, should ensure that their kernel headers and sources match the kernel build they are running.If you perform a system update which changes the version of the linux kernel being used, make sure to rerun the commands below to ensure you have the correct kernel headers and kernel development packages installed.Otherwise, the CUDA Driver will fail to work with the new kernel.
It is recommended to use the distribution-specific packages, where possible.
See the CUDA Cross-Platform Installation section for more details. Choose the platform you are using and download the NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit The CUDA Toolkit contains the CUDA driver and tools needed to create, build and run a CUDA application as well as libraries, header files, CUDA samples source code, and other resources.
The download can be verified by comparing the MD5 checksum posted at with that of the downloaded file.
Standalone installers are not provided for architectures other than the x86_64 release.
For both native as well as cross development, the toolkit must be installed using the distribution-specific installer.
