I downloaded cuda toolkit from here! I'm running on 32-bit Linux(Mint 17). I had to download .run file(the downloaded file name is

cuda_6.5.14_linux_32.run-{09606fc1-f7a7-4b33-a22d-12b51c090f83}.dtapart

After downloading, I made it executable(Properties -> Permissions -> Allow this ... ). When I ran it, it didn't work(nothing happen).

I tried installing it from terminal. I did chmod +x <name> and then 'bash '. But now it showed me this message:

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
Extraction failed.
Ensure there is enough space in /tmp and that the installation package is not corrupt
Signal caught, cleaning up

I searched the error but I couldn't find a solution.

My system info:

32bit LinuxMint 17

lspci | grep -i nvidia :

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G98M [GeForce G 105M] (rev a1)

uname -m && cat /etc/*release:

    You have not posted df for /tmp AND I'd suggest redownloading from another source AND veryifying the checksum of the download. Failing that, maybe a quick note to the provider of the package for assistance. – mdpc Sep 2 '14 at 19:51

Files whose names are decorated with a UUID and the extension 'dtapart', such as this, are most likely partially downloaded files generated by the download manager DownThemAll. If this is the case, the reason it could not be properly invoked is because it was an incomplete download.

You can either finish the download or delete it and restart the download from the beginning, and make sure it completes entirely, before running it as you have.
