Default Installation and running of mkfactc

I've downloaded v0.21 and read the README.

It appears that some knowledge of using CUDA is needed prior to using this software. (Knowledge that, alas, I don't have.) I have CUDA 9.0 installed (I think) on a Ubuntu 17.10 machine but I don't know where to go from here.

The README references a /src directory but there is no such directory in the v0.21 directory.

What am I missing? Does someone have a more detailed set of instructions on how to get this up and running? :-)

If you already have an mfaktc.exe, you can just run that.

Otherwise there should be a src directory. In that you made need to edit the Makefile to point a couple of variables to the right place, before you run `make`.

I’m not in front of that computer right now but I did run “mfaktc.exe -h” and got an error.

Try untar’ing the v0.21 Linux 64 file. There is no src directory. There is a lib directory though but that didn’t help.

You should run
Code:
./mfaktc.exe -h
or

try this command
Code:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH="./lib:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}" ./mfaktc.exe -h

That is what I tried before.

This appears to have worked! I at least got the HELP output. :-) On to the next phase. <insert dramatic music here>

Thank you for your help.

It appears that mfaktc v0.21 is compiled for CUDA 6.5. I have CUDA 9.0.

So, should I uninstall 9.0 and install 6.5 instead? Or where do I get the source of mfaktc so I can build a binary for CUDA 9.0. (Assuming I can figure out how to do that.)

If mfaktc successfully completes the full self-test
Code:
./mfaktc.exe -st
...there should be no need to down-grade your CUDA, nor recompile against 9.0.

Hmmm... OK.

I would next try compiling mkfactc in your enviromment; it's not that hard.

Downgrading CUDA is also an option, but I've found it can be a royal pain in the butt (I've burnt through many an Amazon VM with failed attempts).

Do you have source code? The link http://www.mersenneforum.org/mfaktc/ doesn't provide source (and it's the only link I know of for getting mfaktc code).

Actually, this brings up a point...

@Oliver... Perhaps it's time to update http://www.mersenneforum.org/mfaktc/ and make it possible to find precompiled executables for CUDA 9, and easier to find the source code?

For example, perhaps mfaktc-0.21.tar.gz could be renamed mfaktc-0.21_src.tar.gz?
