I'm new at Linux, so the following question may sound trivial. At the moment I want to install a .deb file, specifically the
Cuda Toolbox 8.0, and it uses a .deb file. However, when I use the command
$ sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb
I obtain the following log:
dpkg-deb: error: 'cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb.deb' is not a debian format archive dpkg: error processing archive cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb.deb (--install): subprocess dpkg-deb --control returned error exit status 2 Errors were encountered while processing: cuda-repo-ubuntu1604-8-0-local-ga2_8.0.61-1_amd64.deb.deb
The solution looks quite trivial, since it is a standard procedure to install .deb packages and it is written in the nVidia tutorial. But I'm not able to do it. Any help would be appreciated.
