is it my mind just being too displaced for the moment? I find it hard
to locate the cuda sdk libraries wich I am supposed to have installed
to be able to use cuda.

I was about to test the demos of the 32 bit octane renderer on
a windows vista 32 bit system. and itīs on a pretty lame nvidia prebuilt oem system with the geforce g100 graphics card here at work.
it couldnīt recognize any cuda cores wich I believe is due to not installed
cuda sdk.

were about to upgrade the computers with geforce gtx 460 here at work..
at home I will order the 480.

anyone who knows where to find the cuda sdk libraries for the g100 cards?

Yep, thats where I go when I have to suffer through Cuda code, which happily is not often.

Not sure..donīt have the time right now to check it out, maybe Im looking for the wrong stuff, It might be that I just need to get a completary
nvidia driver if I choose from the g100 cards drivers at nvidia.com

I tried to let the site scan the drivers, but both firefox and explorer browsers are preventing the scan to complete, Ive tried to add the site
as a safe place in the browser but it didnīt work anyway, whatīs up with
all this blockers?

Oh well..Im not gonna waste time to find the correct ones for this card, I just ordered a new computer for the job with a geforce gtx 460 card, so
it will arrive in within 5-10 days.

and im still composing together my own homecomputer,I m most certainly gonna get the gtx 480 and some faster stuff for the processor and harddrives than I get here at work.

hereīs an excerpt from the octanerenderer read me file regarding cuda installation.
_________________________________________
This release requires a PC with a Cuda capable video card
and the MS Windows Operating System (Windows 2000 or higher).

If you have a 64bit capable version of windows, we highly recommend downloading our x64 version,
as it allows you to load much larger datasets.

To check if you're GPU is Cuda capable, please refer to this list:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_learn_products.html

Please download the latest drivers from the nvidia homepage for your card and Windows version.
Any driver that is compatible with cuda 3.0 should work.


PC / Linux
----------

The package FreeType (freetype2) needs to be installed.
Please use your distribution's package management system to install it prior to running Octane Render.

First download the latest drivers from the nvidia homepage for your card and Linux version.
Any driver that is compatible with cuda 3.0 should work.

Then, download and install the CUDA toolkit version 3.0 for your distribution.

___________________________________________
so I think thereīs three different drivers that needs to be installed.
for octane render to work.
