CUDA installation on centOS 7

well! tried, tried and tried...and if you havn't yet been able to install CUDA on your favourite EL 'coz of some dumb dependencies, this post is for your.

In my case dkms troubled me. It stands for Dynamic Kernel Module Support. More about dkms could be read on its project page.

Well if this or any other package troubles you, the best places to find them are either rpmforge or epel community.

here is how you enable rpmForge repository in centOS 7.x (64 bit):

$ wget
$ rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el7.rf.x86_64.rpm

here is how you enable epel repository on centOS 7.x (64 bit):
$ wget
$ rpm -ivh epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm
However, as most EL(s) including centOS borrow their packages from fedora project, you may be lucky to have epel pre-enabled. (fedora acts more like beta release of ELs and only stable packages gets to be part of ELs - may be this is why most of the times fedora has newer packages compared to currently available ELs).

Now, dkms - - well once you have rpmforge enabled, all you have to do is punch in command written below. 

$ yum --enablerepo rpmforge install dkms

Once done goto CUDA download website, and select your disto, and follow the steps there. here, is a screen shot of my selection for centOS 7. 

 Once CUDA installation is complete, you should get screen as follows:

'gather up your friends and start your own firm' lullaby!

(To be sung with the theme from the Beverly Hillbillies)

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Ted, A poor college kid, barely kept his family fed. But then one day he was talking to a recruiter who said, "they'll pay big bucks if ya work on a computer"..

UNIX, that is....Windows 10....Workstations...C++...VB

Well, the first thing ya know ol' Ted's an engineer. The kinfolk said "Ted, move away from here". They said "Bangalore is the place you oughta be" so he bought some donuts and he moved to Kormangla...

Intel, that is....dry heat... no amusement parks.....

On his first day at work, they stuck him in a cube. Fed him lots of donuts and sat him at a tube. They said "your project's late, but we know just what to do Instead of 40 hours, we'll work you 52!"

OT, that is ...unpaid...mandatory.....

The weeks rolled by and things were looking bad. Schedules started slipping and some managers were mad. They called another meeting and decided on a fix. the answer's very simple..."we'll work him sixty-six!"

Tired, that is.. stressed out.. no social life....

Months turned into years and his hair was turning gray. Ted worked very hard while his life just slipped away Waiting to retire when he turned 64, instead he got a call and escorted out the door.

Laid off, that

Now the moral of the story is, do what you are told companies will use you and discard you when you're old So gather up your friends and start your own firm, Beat the competition, watch old bosses squirm.

Millionaires that is.....Bill Gates...Steve Jobs...

Ya'll come back now, ya hear.

There! Now get back to work!

Hill Climb Racing: faster finish cheat!

Well isn't it annoying how after playing for so long you are left with 5 digit scores on each level. No matter what you try, that junky keep flipping. And those hard earned coins are never enough - you need upgradations on your vehicles, at times the vehicle you were driving all alone isn't suitable for current level. And, ofcourse you have to unlock new levels as well. 

Here is a easy and fast way to earn coins. (ofcourse, there are cheats/cracked version of games available -- but do you really trust those third party cracked game files)

Here is what you can do during game play: 

1. earn coins! (yeah but that's what is the toughest part. If you had been earning enough coins you would not be here reading this article. Well there is some pain involved at the beginning.)
2. earn coins just enough to open 'MOON' stage.
3. Once on this level, let your vehicle rock and roll.  You will notice those single insane air times get you more coins than what you had been earning  so far. 10-12 such air times each game and soon you will have coins enough to buy new vehicles, stages and upgrades. 

10000 and counting, did you actually ever earn these many coins in initial stages even after riding for long. :D

83450 coins at 707m: fast isn't it! 10 such games and have a new stage/vehicle. No need to use those cracked game files and absolutely no need to pay for coins.
Happy rolling!
