I used a library (the library is called cublas) in my CUDA code which I 'm writing in linux, I can compile my code successfully using nvcc but when I run the code I get this error:
error while loading shared libraries: libcublas.so.7.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I am wondering if running this command is safe and does not affect other settings of the system
Yes, you'll be fine.
only affects the process you execute it in.
It will not affect any other user's process, or any other process of yours.
Furthermore, if you log out and log in again, you will have to execute that command again. It is not "sticky"
