1. Hello friends ;)

    I've been running a few headless multiple GPU boinc servers on 12.10/CUDA5.5 because of the "bug" in the 12.04.4 update. But, 12.10 is not supported any more. https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-toolkit-55-archive
    I noticed that there's no warning at CUDA6.0/Ubuntu 12.04.5 so I tried to build the system using these. Everything went pretty well until I got to this command (which worked fine in 12.10/CUDA5.5). Please help me edit or correct this command so that it can be done. Here's the command and the errors which appeared:

    Code:
    
    # apt-get install linux-image-extra-$(uname -r) x11-xserver-utils mesa-utils
    
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    
    E: Unable to locate package linux-image-extra-3.13.0-32-generic
    E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'linux-image-extra-3.13.0-32-generic'
    
    
    Here's a few additional commands I use, so that you can maybe get an idea of what I'm doing:

    Code:
    
    [...]
    
    #19 # apt-get install linux-image-extra-$(uname -r) x11-xserver-utils mesa-utils   <----- errors because of this command
    
    #20 # modprobe nvidia
    
    #21 # nvidia-xconfig --enable-all-gpus
    
    #22  cp /etc/X11/XF86Config /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    
    [...]
    
    
    Looking forward to hear from anyone ;)

  3. Content of /etc/apt/sources.list

    Hi Srijan,


    Thanks for helping my friend ;)

    It doesn't seem to be in the file. Here's the content of /etc/apt/sources.list
    As I wrote earlier on, I've got 3 systems running 12.10/CUDA5.5 which works just fine. Should I list /etc/apt/sources.list from one of those systems, so that we can compare it? Or doesn't these lines have to be in 12.10 to work?

    Content of /etc/apt/sources.list:

    Hi Dan,

    Your 12.04 don't seem to be upgraded with the latest kernel. Do one trick, first upgrade the system to latest one with latest updates. Use

    Further check with this command if you have linux-image-generic latest installed use:
    Then try to install linux-image-extra
     
  5. Hi Srijan,


    Regarding the update & upgrade command I does these several times during the Boinc Server installation. I'm pretty sure i did this more times than necassary, but I'll do it again right now of course ;)

    The ToDo changes the "stamp" or "version number" or what its called, or I think it does.

    Code:
    # lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS
    Release:        12.04
    Codename:       precise
    
    Code:
    # uname -a
    Linux beaufort 3.13.0-32-generic #57~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jul 15 03:51:20 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    
    Code:
    # cat /proc/version
    Linux version 3.13.0-32-generic ([email protected]) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5) ) #57~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jul 15 03:51:20 UTC 2014

    Regarding "apt-get upgrade linux-image-generic" I'll try that right away!!

    Here's a copy of relevant stuff in my ToDo as it was when I installed the 12.10 system.:

    Install Boinc!
