I have a little problem with the NVIDIA driver. I've built a PC for scientific computations on which I'm running MATLAB and other programs.
To speed up the computations I've included a NVIDIA Quadro K5000 to take advantage of the CUDA capabilities of MATLAB.
Unfortunately, I have a little problem. When I'm using the
nouveau driver everything is working fine, but of course I'm missing the CUDA support of MATLAB. When I install the NVIDIA driver from the repository (nvidia-361) as well as the
nvidia-cuda-dev/nvidia-cuda-toolkit packages I can open MATLAB but almost every other graphical program doesn't open.
When I try to start them over the command line I get the error
"Segmentation fault (core dumped)".
I tried using other versions, but with the nvidia-352 driver I have the same error and the nvidia-304 driver is apparently too old to support CUDA. Does anybody know how I could fix the Segmentation fault error when using the newest NVIDIA drivers?
