I’ve hit a HUGE problem that’s preventing me from using my new nVidia 550Ti card.
After installing CUDA, setting Blender up to use the card and trying to render even a basic scene I get nothing. Just a blank preview with the little squares in it.
When I’ve launched Blender in a Terminal and doing the same process above I get the following two errors:
CUDA error: Launch failed in cuMemAlloc(&device_pointer, size) and CUDA error: Launch failed in cuMemFree(cuda_device_ptr(mem.device_pointer))
I haven’t got a clue what that means, nor how to fix it, so any help would be amazing as I want to start shaving my render times from something like 5 hours on just a CPU to under 2 hours
O/S: Ubuntu Studio 12.04 64bit,
GPU: eVGA nVidia 550Ti,
