Making It Easier To Deploy CUDA On Fedora
Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 28 April 2015 at 07:49 AM EDT. Add A Comment
While Fedora 21 ships with decent OpenCL support, if you're running the binary NVIDIA graphics driver on Fedora Linux and wishing to use CUDA-accelerated programs, it's a little bit easier today thanks to a new third-party package repository.

Fedora developer Simone Caronni has setup a third-party RPM repository with CUDA-enabled programs set up for Fedora 21. The current programs include the NVENC-enabled version of FFmpeg, CUDA and FFmpeg enablement for the Blender 3D creation software, and support for the CUDA-based ccminer for those mining crypto-currencies. These programs are built for NVIDIA's CUDA 6.5+ and thus makes it relevant to just the newer NVIDIA graphics processors on the modern proprietary driver.
