I can't find the following packages in Debian testing:


No more than month ago when I was setting another CUDA box and they were there, now there's only version 3.2 of the toolkit. My sources.list:

deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free

I know I can use Nvidia binaries, but: I already have a bunch of scripts to set up a new box, plus the binary install cuda headers and compiler in /usr/local/cuda and this messes up with my Eclipse project set-ups, which assume everything goes to /usr (compiler to /bin, hedaers to /include etc). If I change the path than there is no easy way to un-install the toolkit as they are scattered... –  fbielejec Nov 12 '11 at 12:01
Did you check snapshot.debian.org? BTW, your link points to a version 4.0.17-3. This is not the version you want? –  Faheem Mitha Nov 12 '11 at 20:13
It is, yet it's not in the repositories. –  fbielejec Nov 13 '11 at 18:31
You're mistaken. It is for at least i386 and amd64. I just started downloading it. What is your arch? –  Faheem Mitha Nov 13 '11 at 19:35
It's 64. Turns out nvidia-toolkit 4 is in deb ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free, which was not in the sources.list of my distro. –  fbielejec Nov 14 '11 at 14:17
