I am using a server that I don't have sudo powers on. I want to do GPU computing in Python using the theano back end. It seems that I need to have the "nvcc" program and set it in my path. However, I can't find it. I'm not sure if that means it does not exist.
I can run nvidia-smi and apt shows that I have libcuda installed. This suggests to me that the CUDA GPU toolkit has been installed. I would think, then, that nvcc should be around too.
Most online resources indicate that nvcc is in /usr/local or /usr/lib but I can't find it there.
Installation information on the internet says the computer needs to be reset after installing nvcc, which I can't do.
I am trying to follow these two pages: http://deeplearning.net/software/theano/tutorial/using_gpu.html http://deeplearning.net/software/theano/install_ubuntu.html#gpu-linux
