Subject: nvidia-cuda-dev: Missing folder in LIBRARIES environment variable in /etc/nvcc.profile
Date: Fri, 27 Dec 2019 11:54:18 +0200
Package: nvidia-cuda-dev
Version: 10.1.105-3+b1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

The NVCC compiler (or rather the nvlink linker) looks for libraries in 
the folder listed in the LIBRARIES environment variable. This 
environment variable is added to from within the nvcc.profile file. In 
Debian/Devuan, that file is located in /etc and contains:

LIBRARIES       =+ $(_SPACE_) -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/stubs

However - that's not the only necessary folder (perhaps not even the 
more important one): nvlink needs to be search /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu 
as well (without the /stubs).

And indeed, if we look at /usr/local/cuda-10.1/bin/nvcc.profile (which 
is also installed for some reason), we find:

LIBRARIES        =+ $(_SPACE_)

... with both folders.

This is a bug, and it makes nvlink fail to link even simple programs in 
some cases. See, for example:

Thanks for this. However nvidia-cuda-dev is not a forked package and 
Devuan uses the file directly from Debian.

You would be better reporting this directly to Debian BTS.



Added tag(s) debian. Request was from Mark Hindley <> to (Mon, 03 Feb 2020 14:33:04 GMT) (full text, mbox, link).
