be suppressed (per the link in the original post) if you want to use a
The issue here is that the version of the C standard library that ships on
the operating system has a new feature that interacts poorly with versions
of CUDA that pre-dated it. Using a compatible compiler doesn't help, if it
shares that standard library. To fix, as Szilard tried to suggest, you can
which avoids the problematic code path. The irritating part about trying to
