dont know what i did but all of a sudden it compiled. when i run it however it is saying
[2014-01-08 19:29:35] Unable to query CUDA driver version! Is an nVidia driver installed?

now i do have an nvidia driver installed. what am i missing?

EDIT
just to show its installed, i ran nvcc --version and this is what i got;

nvcc: NVIDIA (R) Cuda compiler driver
Copyright (c) 2005-2013 NVIDIA Corporation
Built on Wed_Jul_17_18:36:13_PDT_2013
Cuda compilation tools, release 5.5, V5.5.0

so it is 100% installed but cudaminer can not find it :s

you're confusing driver and compiler.

You need a working nvidia driver and the nVidia kernel module loaded.

The nvidia-331 driver (if installed via apt-get) should already be working. Alternatively the driver from the toolkit can be installed, but that requires an installation without a running X-Server.

that's a really good question. Have you tried running the display through the nVidia card, too?

higher N factor means lower rewards for mining blocks and a higher memory requirement every time it increases. eventually it will get so high that gpus wont have enough memory to even hash once so the hashrate will drop very quickly. this is why cpu mining will carry on as desktop memory is cheap and can be replaced

Thanks for clearing that out! Though I have another question.
What if we have a scrypt-jane cryptocurrency with:
"Nfactor" : 6,
"N" : 128,
instead of YaCoin's 14/32768? What I mean is, can I finetune cudaMiner to hash faster on lower N factor cryptocurrencies, as it should be using less VRAM for the same hashrate or I'm completely off here?

ok so my entire system has just died. so i have lost everything i did to get compiling working, my compiled version, and everything else that was on it. installing the newest 12.04 as we speak, hope to god it works. although i will probably end up spending another 6 hours trying to get cudaminer to compile

yes, lower NFactor uses very little RAM. Not sure how efficient it would be though.

cbuchner1 can you help me quickly. im running the cudaminer compile again. and right now i am getting an error of
Code:
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [cudaminer] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/jamie/.local/share/Trash/files/CudaMiner-master'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

i think this is the last part that is an issue so some quick help would be great.

the linker has a problem, which must be listed somewhere in the lines above. maybe not finding the CUDA runtime libraries to link against?

so is this a g++ issue or something? as if has an undefined reference. i have tried running the make with g++ and gcc 4.4 and get the same error

this is caused by not running ./autogen.sh before ./configure

i 100% ran both. in that order

ok so i just called ./autogen.sh again, i was just running the file before.
i am getting a response of
"./autogen.sh: line 1: aclocal: command not found


EDIT!!!!!!!!!!!
someone shoot me, i didnt have automake installed :p
compiles now haha

I guess you need to install the autoconf and automake packages via apt-get then

yes, lower NFactor uses very little RAM. Not sure how efficient it would be though.

I think it's fairly efficient:


and considering that I have 3 cudaminer instances running on a single GTX 660, by fairly efficient I mean amazing! And yes, this is scrypt-jane.

If I would have a decent CPU, I could get more, my poor Athlon II X2 270 is getting stomped by cudaMiner, even though it's at 4.2 Ghz.

ah yes. The Kekkac hashing on the CPU is singlethreaded, and non SSE optimized yet.

ok got it all working now. so i need to create the launch file now.
so i created a file called, cudaminer.sh with run permission. put the following code inside of it

Code:
./cudaminer --algo=scrypt-jane -H 0 -i 0 -d 0 -l T16x1 -o http://127.0.0.1:3339 -u user -p pass -D

run it and it doesnt show anything. but if i type it directly into the terminal it loads up and shows. and i am telling this to run in terminal when i click it. any ideas?

ah yes. The Kekkac hashing on the CPU is singlethreaded, and non SSE optimized yet.

It's stressing the CPU in a weird way, I haven't really seen anything like it before. If I run 3-4 instances (or 2 with -i 0) I get massive mouse lag and eventually a BSOD about a timed out CPU interrupt while the GPU is almost idling.
