my MacBook Pro (MBP) is running OS X 10.6.5 and Mathematica Home
Edition 18.104.22.168 (32bit).
It's a MBP with two graphics chips: an Nvidia GeForce 9400M and a 9600M
GT -- the latter one is listed as a support chipset for Mathematica's
CUDA functionality. I activated the 9600M GT chip and verified that
it's the currently used one.
I, too, downloaded and installed Nvidia's CUDA driver.
However, I still get "False" from the CUDAQ query.
I thought that's because of the missing CUDA Ressources so I tried
but I immediately got
Mathematica never even tried to download that from it's paclet server
-- despite the fact that I allowed Mathematica to access the Internet
in the settings.
So I downloaded the paclet manually (which worked).
However, on a Mac, the downloaded file ends in .zip:
Now I tried several different variations of the path to this paclet in
the CUDAResourcesInstall command:
- gave it the full path including the zip filename
- unpacked the zip file, got a folder "CUDAResources-OSX-22.214.171.124"
(without the ".paclet"), and used the path to this folder
- just removed the ".zip" suffix from the downloaded file and gave
CUDAResources-OSX-126.96.36.199.paclet as parameter
.... but none worked. :-(
The "best" I got (with the last variation mentioned above) was this:
Message::name : "Message name "CUDAResources paclet path
`1` is not valid." is not of the form symbol::name or
Any help on how I can install this paclet?
And why doesn't the normal (automatic) installation via
Thanks a lot!
