    If you have an opencl card, just install latest nVidia driver.
    I guess you'll have to manual install them (from nVidia drivers page) because ubuntu does'nt provide recent enough drivers.

    I have the cuda drivers installed currently, but nvidia has a different driver. Can I use these drivers for opencl.

    I don't know cuda drivers

    But I know that last graphics drivers from nVidia provide OpenCL SDK.

    I don't use ubuntu much, although I hope that to change once I finish grad school in December.

    I would imagine that your question could probably be better answered in the NVIDIA Developer Forums for OpenCL.

    I would also imagine that NVIDIA/CUDA drivers for the Linux environment that have been released since early to mid 2010 would have the OpenCL capability, but don't quote me on that.

    I have explained installing the correct driver on my blog: http://www.streamcomputing.eu/blog/2010 ... l-on-linux

    Installing the SDK is really straightforward. Just make sure you do the instructions at the end, most notable setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    Just post here in which step you encountered problems.

    Re: Tutorial

    When doing a make of the CUDA/OpenCL SDK, you not only needs 'build-essential', but also:
    mesa-common-dev
    libx11-dev
    libgl1-mesa-dev
    libglu1-mesa-dev
    libglut3-dev
    libxmu-dev

    For shell-users:
    > sudo apt-get install build-essential mesa-common-dev libx11-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libglut3-dev libxmu-dev

    Know that NVIDIA only has OpenCL 1.0 drivers and you have to register as a developer to get the 258.19-drivers, which have 1.1-support.
