CUDA 8.0 packages are available in the YUM repositories for Bright 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3. The CUDA 8.0 packages are:

  • cuda80-toolkit
  • cuda80-sdk
  • cuda80-gdk (optional)
  • cuda-driver

For a complete update, the older version must first be removed with the package manager utility. Further details of the changes are given in the KB article http://kb.brightcomputing.com/faq/index.php?action=artikel&id=149

 

Basically, the cudaXY-driver and cudaXY-lib packages from before CUDA 5.5 are both replaced by cuda-driver, which covers all CUDA versions now. For CUDA 6.0 and beyond, the cuda-profiler package is no longer there, but profiler components are now part of the cuda60-toolkit package. For CUDA 6.5 and beyond, the cuda60-tdk package is replaced by the cudaXY-gdk package.
