I have been trying to get cuda to run on a nvidia gt 650m based laptop. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with the nvidia 295.59 driver. Also, my laptop uses Optimus so I have install the driver via bumblebee. Bumblebee is not working correctly yet -- however I believe it is possible to install CUDA independently.

To install CUDA I have followed the instructions detailed here: How can I get nVidia CUDA or OpenCL working on a laptop with nVidia discrete card/Intel Integrated Graphics?

However I am still running into problem building the sdk. I made the changes specified at the above link in common.mk, but I got the following (snippet) from the build process:

    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/john/NVIDIA_GPU_Computing_SDK/C/src/fluidsGL'

The libraries that ld warns about are on my system and are installed on the system:

    $ locate libnvidia-tls.so.302.17 libnvidia-glcore.so.302.17
    /usr/lib/nvidia-current/libnvidia-glcore.so.302.17
    /usr/lib/nvidia-current/libnvidia-tls.so.302.17
    /usr/lib/nvidia-current/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.302.17
    /usr/lib32/nvidia-current/libnvidia-glcore.so.302.17
    /usr/lib32/nvidia-current/libnvidia-tls.so.302.17
    /usr/lib32/nvidia-current/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.302.17

however /usr/lib/nvidia-current and /usr/lib32/nvidia-current are not being picked up by ldconfig. I have tried adding them by adding a file to /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ which gets past this error, however now I am getting the following error:

    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/john/NVIDIA_GPU_Computing_SDK/C/src/deviceQueryDrv'

I would appreciate any help that anyone can provide me with. If I can provide any further information please let me know.

Thanks.
