I successfully installed the nvidia driver and toolkit for cuda 5 (but not the samples) on a 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04 box. The samples failed to install even though I previously ran
sudo apt-get install freeglut3-dev build-essential libx11-dev libxmu-dev libxi-dev libgl1-mesa-glx libglu1-mesa libglu1-mesa-dev
I can't seem to find nvcc. I ran
nvcc -v reports that the compiler is not found:
nvcc -V No command 'nvcc' found, did you mean: Command 'nvlc' from package 'vlc-nox' (universe) nvcc: command not found
The getting started guide hasn't been of much help here.
What's going on here? Do I need to install the gpu computing sdk samples to get nvcc?
